More christmas decorations

I did eventually put up all the christmas decorations, but I have to admit that my heart was not really in it this year. I opted multiple colors in the tree (as opposed to last years silver one). I also added some wraths to the sunroom even though we will hardly use it at this time of the year.

Pot of gold

I was lucky to find several gold and silver pots for about 1 € each at the local thrift store and I used three of them to create a center piece for our sofa table. As the large one was broken (which meant I got it on a discount) I lined it with a napkin and filled it with nuts.

I love how the three of them compliment each other, and I added some pearl garlands to give some extra christmas feeling.

I used two golden ones to display some flowers at a side table. I think it turned out quite nicely.

Thrift store finds

I went to the thrift store a while ago and came home with loads of new plates. I like to have some plates with more character and charm than the IKEA plates we normally use. These were all less than 50c each and will be perfect.

Christmas decorations

I have a hard time finding the inspiration for christmas decoration this year. Despite having three full boxes of christmas stuff, it feels like I don't have the things I would like.

Very unlike me.


They came at last.

My christmas gift

Here is the lovely plaid we got from work. Fantastic.

My only challenge is to keep it away from the cats, as they love the cozines just as much as I do.

For those cold winter nights

I just got the loveliest wool blanket as a cristmas present from my work. I will take a picture of it tomorrow, because the one I just took didnt turn out to well.

Very suitable present, considering it is -15 C outside.
