I love lights

I hope everyone had a great weekend. We did a fair bit of cleaning this weekend. Mainly in our backyard. I did some weeding, Jason mowed the lawn. And we're going to have to kill the old grass and weeds, turn the soil and plant grass seeds. I can't wait to have a pretty lawn.

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.

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!

Yay for having a massive tree! I can't wait to see it once it's finished :)

Practical gifts like the ones from your parents are excellent. I love gifts that are things I've been wanting/needing for a while, but couldn't buy myself.

How cute are those mushrooms? I saw them in Myer the other week.

It looks so lovely already Gracie! My husband frowns on putting up the tree until at least the second weekend in December but I have started to sneak in house decorations already!

Can't wait to see your house full of Christmas cheer.
