More Chrissy inspiration...


I'd say most of us have finished decorating our homes for the Christmas season but incase you're unfinished and uninspired here are some gorgeous festive rooms that have certainly inspired me!

Some have a nordic flavour and others are comfortably colonial. My home features a little of each.

While my children are still little, I have alot of decoration my children have made at school and such to which I cherish eg: the handstitched tree on a piece of linen my daughter made. My tree is very disorganized with mostly figurine and handmade ornaments as opposed to perfectly proportioned baubles.

Here is my latest edition, I found this lovely santa who I fondly refer to as my Nordic santa from the flea market this past sunday.


He stands proudly on my hall table :) My love for vintage finds certainly doesn't stop at Christmas. After seeing Tracey's post I'm now on the hunt for mercury glass baubles to place in a pewter bowl. LOVE IT!
More pics of my Chrissy decor to come...

Lovely images. Don't you just adore this time of year!
Your new santa is absolutely charming. He looks to have found a wondeful home on your Shabby Chic books.

Hi Anna,
These are just gorgeous! I love the swan in front of the mirror. They're all so sweet!

That 'snug' bed and the dining room are to die for. Another gorgeous post dear Anna.

Those images are divine Anna, as is your little display. You know I have those exact books stacked together!!! wierd! The top photo I especially love because I have made big white letters the same for our presents to go with brown paper. I would love to see more of your decorating. We only have the tree up and our big fireplace in the kitchen (as tall as me) decorated, and the kids doors, oh and our wreaths. Images like these make me want to paint faster. lol
