Q; What's brown and sticky? 

A; A stick.

I'm using this little twiglet to create a Christmas vignette in the corner of my Dining Room......I found it on a walk around our neighbourhood with hubby and the kids. 

The woven fairy lights are from Adairs and the sweet little aqua birds are from Pillow Talk. 

I'm a big fan of simplicity when it comes to Christmas decorating. Too much tinselly bling just doesn't do it for me. I tend to gravitate towards a more Scandi style for the Christmas season......I lay it on thick with the white and add flashes of red and blonde wood......
I'm also partial to an airy garland of white paper doilies draped in front of a window and fluttering in the Summer breeze.

Advent Calender hanging vertically from a window frame rather than horizontally.

Plain white Christmas Stockings from the $2.00 shop jazzed up with ribbon and Scandi Snowflake Decorations.

Candles are for every occasion but are especially lovely for Christmas.

I have a small makeover project on the go at the moment which of course means I've been wielding a paintbrush yet again......

All will be revealed here tomorrow for the Saturday Style link party......don't forget to link up your latest creations or vintage finds here and check out what everyone else has been up to! I have a feeling there will be lots of Christmas inspiration......

See you then!!!
