I know, I know Christmas was ages ago now!! I always seem to be 20 posts behind the rest of you luvlies!!! But here are a few of my fav xmas pressies. I'm only showing you a selection, because I was really spoilt by all my family and so I didn't want to bore you with too many piccies............
2 soft throws and a pink wire memo holder
A wooden tray from Merchant Chandler, a hand-bag sized address book and a mini-hot water bottle (which I am warming my hands on right now!!)
A pretty bird cushion and some Laura Ashley bird table mats and coasters
A lady bird mug - in a nice box!! and a pink nice smelling jelly candle!
Some soft owl pyjamas and pompom slipper socks
So didn't I do well!!!
Before Christmas I had painted all my furniture and walls white and added in beige and lots of red accessories. At Christmas I took down all my red bits and put up all my red and white Christmas decs. But when I took them down again, my red accessories just made me feel sick!! I think it felt as though it was still Christmas - so the red had to be packed up and I now have a white and beige living room!! It is all very neutral - but I actually really like it. Its like the calm amongst the storm - in the other rooms! So I might have to buy some more neutrals as it is looking a bit too bare and then maybe in the winter add my red bits again (which I have moved to the bedroom for now).
I also have made a major change in the living room................the red chesterfields have gone and I now have brown leather settees - which also makes the neutral look more possible!! Pictures to follow..................
Have a good week
