Blue painted wall

(image from Marmalade Interiors via Decorpad)
Hope you all had a lovely christmas, time to sort the house out now, we have started our new year early and painted a blue wall in our family room, yes I know what your thinking, I was alarmed too

I will pop up some pictures once I have hung all the picture frames, white of course.  I'm just surveying the rest of the house to see what else we can paint.  The outdoor cane chairs are looking keen.
Have a fabulous new year.xx

Isn't this a festive idea, wrapping your cushions,

Lots and lots of wrapping has been going on here, how about you,

and some flowers

last year I wrapped my christmas tree lights up neatly, a tip from Martha, so this year I had no tangles when I dressed the tree,

Christmas snowball on the mantle,
continue to shop and wrap everyone.x

I found these baubles at David Jones, aren't the colours gorgeous,
a vintage bauble wreath (source unknown)

David Jones christmas bed display, I really like this cover,

I felt right at home shopping, there was even big pots full of blooming foxgloves, so I stayed a little longer.
Have a lovely Wednesday.x

What a busy time it is, I am still embracing christmas 100% over here, bought some delphiniums to plant, and selected some lovely blue samples of paint, getting the garden ready for the big day, what about you,

I have found some gorgeous blue and white fabric to cover some chairs and an ottoman, I wonder if I will be able to fit that in before the big red and white man arrives.

enjoying this issue of House and Garden, with a white chocolate martini of course,
this tree is from my House and Garden magazine

oh and some more hedges were actioned here too, yes there is still room for more.
Enjoy your Tuesday.x
