It’s a weird old summer here in Australia.
Cold and rainy and not at all representative of the usual hot, sticky, summery lead up to Christmas, I must admit I’ve been finding it a little hard to get my brain to click over into “Xmas Decorating Mode.”
As you know, I’m a huge pinner (and I love that I can say that without raising too many eyebrows!) so I decided to go on hunt for some decorating inspiration this week and was thrilled to find a truckload of creative, easy-to-pull together ideas that would seamlessly fit into any living space.
I’m all about natural elements (our tree last year was a salt-bleached stick, shoved in a silver tin bucket and adorned with handmade ornaments) but I’m also really loving the small pine trees in jars, shown below, as an alternative.
I hope this round up inspires you if the holiday spirit hasn’t yet kicked in! Oh, and one more thing: I just realised I’m singing “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christ-massssss”….. so I’ll leave you on that note. Try getting that out of your head!
