More Christmas

Still trying to get the hang of this new camera so please excuse these photos.
The kids finished school today for the year and they don't go back until February the 4th. EEEEKKKKK!


This is the lilac Christmas tree I got off ebay earlier in the year for $20. I was stoked as they cost around $200 in the shops. I have added lots more decorations since this photo. I bought some matching purple lights from Ikea and found some fab French inspired decorations at Kmart. Pink and decorated with poodles!


My Ikea coffee table before I decorated it for Christmas. Glass goes on top of the shadow boxes.


I painted it pale green as I have been wanting to do this for a while. It matches the feature wall in this room. I have more stuff to add to this when I can find a spare minute!

  2. Hi Peta, love that tree - very different!! I meant to comment on your coffee table once before just to say how much I liked it!! Great idea. I will be on the hunt for one of those. I like that you can change the things in it all the time. I get border easily so this one would be great!!

  11. I've never seen a lavender tree but I really like it. So pretty. And I like how you painted the table green, looks good with everything inside. Why don't the kids go back to school until Feb? Is it like a summer holiday? Have a good week!
