Candles make even the quietest evening an occasion......and they make the disco ball sparkle......because who doesn't hang a disco ball and prop candles on a vintage ladder shelf I ask you???


I accidently created a Christmas Tree out of a pile of driftwood garland and driftwood ball......I don't seem to be able to make anything this clever on purpose!


Choccy cake and Tea on the deck......


Ooh Aah! I started going through my Christmas Decorations......the aqua birds are a recent purchase from Pillow Talk.


More things you never knew you always wanted to know about how to make Christmas decorations with mini embroidery hoops. This one has been made into a Christmas bauble with one of the little aqua birdy decos on top and propped in a thrifted bell jar (it started life as one of those gold clock dome things and only cost a few bob)......


These were a few dollars at Hot Dollar and as you will see in a few weeks they go well with my Christmas Tree decorations......and the kids will love them because they're so sweet......


A gorgeous white pottery serving dish found at an op shop......


My Women's Weekly Christmas Cooking Book ( also thrifted).


Beautiful sea green bowl (Delicious Brand from Myer 30% off)


Aqua Norwegian Santas from Pillow Talk......are you getting the idea yet that my Christmas Style is a little bit Scandi?


This twig was found on a walk we took with the kids......I carried it a long way! It will be decorated with white paper decorations for Christmas any day now......


And this......a new project!!! Any guesses?


I hope your weekend was beautiful too......!!!
