Decking the Coastal Christmas Halls…. Tra la la la la

Hello lovelies!

Tis the season to be Merry and Bright… and deck the halls with shiny gorgeousness!  I love Christmas decorations a lot. Sparkly, glittery goodness. 

I look forward to decorating every year…  and can’t wait for the 1st of December to come around to get my Christmas on! 

That said with so much going on with work, kids sports and events… Christmas decorating and planning for that matter, is a slow process in this coastal home 😉

I’m feeling quite disorganised, with only a few presents shopped for, none wrapped and no plan for a Christmas menu!  Best be giving myself a shift kick in the Christmas behind me thinks 😉

We have the tree up and decorated, I just love seeing it twinkling in the back ground as we watch tellie at night!

I’ve had fun making some Christmas bunting to hang about the place…  here’s a little Joy work in progress!   I also made Noel for my mantel and some Merry Christmas ones which I sold at Market.

Still on my Christmas To Do list is a skirt for our tree… she’s a modest old girl and think a lovely ruffly number would suit her to a tee! 

Finally, I added some fairy lights and the Noel bunting to complete our Coastal Christmasy mantel..  which is not so much a mantel as an Ikea floating shelf above our TV…  but it’s as close as I get to having a mantel so it gets treated as such 🙂

This weekend hubby will channel Clark W Griswold… and hang the outside lighting!  National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation…  I think we watch it every year…  and still laugh out loud ;O

What’s on your menu for Christmas lunch?  Desperately seeking inspiration!

Hope you’re enjoying this crazy beautiful time…

Rustic Christmassy Signs headed to Market

Hi there,

Well just a quick little post, I’ve been so crazy busy this week preparing for my next Market outing tomorrow night.  I’ve made some more little rustic signs. 

I took some of these to my last Market but thought I’d do a few Christmassy ones.  I hope people are feeling festive 😉

 
 
Noel is one of my favourite Christmas words.  Not only is it a beautiful word, it’s my Dad’s name and was my Pop’s name too.  So extra special to me.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I made a bunch more different ones.. but ran out of time to snap some pics! I might take some tomorrow night and share in another post 🙂
 
What’s your favourite Christmas word or phrase?
 
Thanks for stopping by,
 
Jo xx
