A Paint Mine Pink Christmas


Hello lovelies, i thought it was about time i shared some of my chrissy decorating pics with you. Yep, i finally finished 'tweakin' (thats not to say im happy with it but), LOL. Im such a fusspot.
I'll try and keep the piccies to a minimum and just show you my favourite parts of our Christmas decorating.
So grab your egg nog, throw some tinsel around your neck a-la scarf style and lets go.

This is the view from the kitchen to the front room. Come on in...


The Dining Table is a team effort by Sam and i. I love it ! At night we flick the little bud lights on and its like a mini winter wonderland.


Our Angels sit on a table watching over us...


This year i finally convinced Shane we needed a white tree. Well i kinda got one....it turns out that this tree is soooo white its blue! believe it or not that does make sense. Anyway i love it. We also bought Sam a Christmas Train Set for around the bottom (uh but it seems im the one who keeps playing with it. It even has music...so cool)



In the Family Room you can find my gorgeous and very regal looking Santa sitting on the dresser surrounded by snow and tiny little blue bud lights.



But my absolute FAVOURITE part of our christmas decorating is this.....i saved the best for last...

My gorgeous boy, he did this all himself, he even chose the colours he wanted. All i did was hang the candy canes from the mirror for him. He is such a sweet boy, i love him so much.Can you see, he even put baubles in a lantern! eeekkk so cute!

If you are still with me THANKYOU ! I hope you liked a lil' bit of christmas from our house *smiles*

This is probably my last post for the year so i want to wish you all the MERRIEST CHRISTMAS ever! Be safe, be happy and cherish your loved ones!

I will try and pop by and visit you all before Christmas.

SEE YOU NEXT YEAR CHICKIE BABES (gosh that sounds so far way, but it's not)

Love and Pink Kisses ALWAYS my friends!

Shann

Hi Shannon,

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. It was so nice to see your message and I did spot the pretty rose plate that is just like mine in your picture. Your Christmas decor looks beautiful as does your home. It's so fun to meet and get to know people who have similar tastes in decorating. Hope you are enjoying your Australia summer. It's winter where I live and it's been very snowy and extremely cold the past few weeks. Some days, temps don't even make it above zero (brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.) Merry Christmas to you and you family!

Sharon Ellery said...

What pretty decorations - I love all those little bud lights too. Sam's Xmas corner is just so cute :-)

Merry Christmas.

Sharon
