New Years Day
I spent New Years day taking down the decorations like i do every year. Goodness me its borring!! I much prefer putting them up. It looked very bare when they were all down. But once i had tided i actually liked my new clean canvas, ready for decorating this year.
I did keep a few Christmassy things out. Like Candy canes from the tree in my lovely blue second hand vase.
And the pine cones went in a bowl as a centre piece for the table.
Our front door is original, its painted a lovely bright blue with gorgeous stained glass. It is very very drafty in the winter though, so we bought a big thick curtain from Ikea to keep out the cold just before Christmas. I was going to buy a big tassel tie back from Laura Ashley but instead I found a nice piece of lace to use.
We had a Christmas dinner (using leftovers) including cranberry sauce and crackers. It was lovely.
My calendar is up. This is the one i am using for the kitchen. I also have one for my study. The other free calendars (from magazines) are going to be cut up and put in my inspiration scrapbooks.
More about that later.
There is also a new post at A year of 30.
