next stop, hallway. We liked the combo of kooky twig work with the kozyandan Newcastle post New Years Eve party scene.
then the top of the bookshelf , which needed a wee bit of sprucing amongst the black and white ceramics. This one is actually our personal favourite, it's remarkably tastefull for us, almost 'adult contemporary'. the vinyl collection clearly needed a little 'Christmas Spirit' so they too got the treatment...
as did the sideboard, which was an obvious location to get busy. All those german vases gave us plenty of positioning options to fill with paper stars, recycled woolen baubles and silver balls. If you look closely you might also spot our 'Kamahl & Family' and 'Nina & Fredrik' Christmas singles out on display - it's just not Christmas without them. and finally the tree, it may be a little lopsided and goofy but it smells beeeautiful.
and come nightfall the tree gets all twinkly and positively 'Carolicious', perfectly setting the mood for a mince tart or three.
