We also went to Ikea to get another bookcase (for me) and two bedside tables, which are gifts from my parents for Christmas. Practical :) I thought I might even wrap them just so we can put it under the tree.
Anyway, I've started decorating our house. The tree is up but not quite decorated. We did put some lights on the tree.
I put a few baubles on but I need to get more decorations. And it's hard to take photos of lights, which is a shame because they are so pretty.
This is our buffet. I put these star lights on here to make it more festive. There are a few baubles in a bowl and those are little mushroom picks in the vase.
A better close up of the stars.
I bought this fluffy light wreath from Myer a few years ago. I think it really brightens up a room.
I still have my little 4 ft white tree to put up and my tiny pink tree. And I need to get a Nativity set too. Oh and I've seen these cute Nutcracker soldiers which would be really sweet.
In time this house will be filled with Christmas joy and I hope to share photos.
Have a wonderful week!
