Oh my goodness...

where did Christmas go?!

I hope that you all took some time out to relax and enjoy being with friends and family. Please tell me that I am not the only person who now needs to go on a diet! What is with all the food at this time of the year?!

I have finally gotten myself organised and sorted out my decorating photos so, without further ado, here are some snapshots of Christmas 2010 at ChezB.

Our lounge room was vintage and foresty and also featured an Advent calendar- yes, I did finally get around to organising one!

We were very lucky this year to get a real tree as the poor Sydney weather made them very hard to come by-

Even though it wasn't the best looking tree we've ever had, I loved it's quirkiness and fairy lights make anything look good! Having that pine smell in the house more than makes up for its shortcomings anyway!

Next up, I found some gorgeous illustrations in a cook book (yes, that's right cook books are for looking, not cooking for me!) and copied and framed them. I added old bottles, some wooden and stick on numbers and flowers from the garden to create a "Twelve Days of Christmas" display in the dining room.

Our family room was a little more contemporary with a lot of red and white and an owl, of course!

Finally some presents under the tree -

and that completes Christmas for StephieB and family!

Happy Wednesday,

  1. Wow, all looks so wonderful, Stephie ! Do you still keep your Christmas decorations a little bit longer? Even if Christmas is over, I keep my decorations until mid or even the end of January because I would like to keep the holiday spirit alive and still enjoy these enchanting moments. What about you ? xo, Britta

  2. Thanks Brit! Yes, I do keep my decorations up longer but only until 6th January (Epiphany) as this has always been the tradition in our family. As much as I like having my Christmas decorations up, it feels good to put them away, give the house a clean and get ready to take on the new year! I hope you are enjoying your week off, what are you up to for new Year's Eve? Do you celebrate this? Talk soon, Stephie x

  4. Hi Norma!

    Yes, the Junker Jane doll is pretty cute isn't it?!

    I can't wait for the new year - a new decade of adventures to look forward to - are you doing anything special?

    I am so happy that you liked ChezB and I wish a happy New Year to you too. I hope it's a good year for all of us and brings happiness and joy. I can't wait to see what it brings on the creative front too!

    Lots of hugs,
