New Years Decorations

Inspired by the lovely Cate from All Cats are Grey at Night's post here: , I made some paper pom poms to liven up our deck area for New Years. I decided to go for a rainbow coloured bunch of pom poms which, in hindsight, looked quite 70's flower power inspired and very festive! We had a fun filled evening of dancing, eating and way too much drinking with our closest friends. I'm not sure I want to take the pom poms down now, they are too pretty!

Christmas Goodies

Ahh Christmas has come and gone... Now the wait for New Years. We spent Xmas Day hopping between families and then went down the coast for a couple of days. Above are a couple of pressies from Mr BD, Chloe and Louis Vuitton 2011 diary pages for my LV Agenda. The latter is a very practical pressie as usually I get to late January and am feeling lost without being able to track things and make a belated trip to the LV store. Their stationery is just divine and they usually include some little trinkets like the above page markers, stickers and vintage pics of LV trunks.

I'm using the 2 weeks I have off from work over the holidays to relax & recharge, spend time with family and friends, eat lots, drink lots, read, do some crafty things around our home, take some time out for myself and reflect on the year that was 2010. I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to squeeze some post Xmas sales and op shopping in as well. Hope you are enjoying the holiday season as much as I am!

O Christmas Tree

Over the last few days I have been rather knocked over by a bout of sickness so this weekend we decided to have a quiet one in, doing a few things around the house including putting up our Christmas tree. I cherish this time of year and really enjoy getting into the spirit. This year I thought I'd take it easy with the decorations on our tree as it's just a little one and in previous years I usually cover it with so much tinsel you can't see the lights, let alone the ornaments! This year the ornaments are the stars...

Christmas time is also a good excuse to pull out old Christmas photos. I just love these pics taken of Milly and 'Santa' a few years ago. The poor (female) Santa received lots of kisses! I can't help but giggle when I see these pics ;-)
