It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...
Aren't the flowers so dainty with their little golden tips? They do make a mess a couple of days afted being picked unfortunately. Little bits of dried redness all over the place.
And I seem to have left this decoration out all year. How could I put away such a lovely heart?
My Red Gingham banner garland has made itself at home in our family room. I think it looks very pretty up there. Maybe we'll have a spotty and ginghamy Christmas this year? Although we have had those two themes separately in previous years.
I don't know about the different colour schemes some people do these days. Could you do pink or blue really? I'm sure it's not big in the UK with the traditional Christmas such a reality. But over here in the Summer it's tempting. Why is the wintry Christmas such a big thing for us in the heat anyway? We just can't stay away from it. We love the idea of having a cold Christmas Day. Heck, the shops spray fake snow on the windows!! How ridiculous is that?
I often mention doing a different theme but it just doesn't excite the family. Perhaps we could do red with hot pink? It would combine both seasons. I think a little fabric shopping is needed for inspiration. I need some stuffing for my bunnies anyway. Plenty of time really, aye?
