A few Christmas touches...

The Christmas decorations are finally in place. Traditional and simple (we are technically still a building site after all), but enough to make the house feel festive and welcoming.

It was a delight to hang a wreath on our new front door. I'll show it to you in another post soon, it still has no handles and is propped shut from the inside with a very hefty Chinese bronze horse.

The tree is an annual highlight for Belly the Ragdoll. Her current favourite hobby is to stand on the entrance table and swat at the glass ornaments with her paw.

I managed to break the perspex N from the Noel last week. Luckily, Farmer Joe was able to superglue it back together (and also memorialise his thumb print for all time inside the letter). Then he got a little over-excited, tried to repair the garage door handle, and superglued it shut. Not sure how he'll fix that one...



  1. Brooke, are you a photographer, stylist, interior decorator? All of the above? I love your photos and Christmas touches. Beautiful!!!

    Lol@ the superglued garage door handle =)

  3. Your decorations are beautiful, but don't ley your husband near the superglue again!

  4. Brooke, the decorations are beauuuuutiful. I particularly love the wreath.

    I'm hoping Farmer Joe was on the right side of the super-glued Garage door! He's not still 'stuck' in there is he??


  5. All so nice! Funny about the fingerprint . . .kind of nice that it is there to stay though. Love the front door wreath. How about a Christmas collar for your puppy! LovT

  8. Lol! Never trust an over-excited man with superglue! Every time you post pics of your house, I swooooooon over your gorgeous furniture! Can we house swap for a bit? I fancy being a farmer for a few days :)

  9. Hi Brooke! I just put up my Liebster post...thank you SO much again! It feels great to get a little recognition! By the way - I love the looks like an ice sculpture. Plus NOEL is my daughter's middle name(my Christmas baby!). - good luck with the garage door!
