Christmas inspiration...

I thought I'd celebrate the official start to the festive season with a little Christmas inspiration from the folks at Traditional Home. I'm not sure what I love more - that tree or those windows!

Now I know that here in Oz, Christmas Day can hit 40 degrees. But there's something about a crackling fire that is just so festive...

And finally, wouldn't you love a house that was large enough to justify a second enormous Christmas tree?...

Our tree is waiting at home to be decorated this evening. With a few glasses of sparkling and Bing Crosby's White Christmas album, it's a little tradition that always marks the start of the season for us.



  1. That tradition sounds like my own, there's nothing better than decorating the tree with a glass of bubbly while your favourite christmas music is playing in the it!Have a beautiful day xx

  2. Love the first pic, just beautiful !!!, I think the window is stunning and really sets the scene for Christmas. We have a similar tradition where I do all the hard work of putting the tree up, the lights on and then we all decorate it together with my guidance of course and lastly my Husband puts the star on the tree. Have loads of fun decorating can't wait to see a pic.


  3. How is that window in the first pic?! Gorgeous! Have fun with the tree! I'm going to put mine up this weekend too :)
