Hello ‘shabbilicious’ friends,
We are just 2 weeks out from Christmas and the mood is definitely feeling very ‘merry’ in our home.
From the twinkling lights….. to candy canes and whimsical Christmas characters, there’s Christmas spirit everywhere I look. Would you like a quick peek?
Our whole house is decorated, but I think I get the most joy from the living room, which for us is the heart of our home.
I suspect you’ve already guessed that I didn’t choose the colour scheme….
My daughter decided we were having red and white in all the living areas. I’ve tried to mix it in with all my neutrals…. because I’m not sure this shabby gal could cope with full on red everywhere I look.
The gorgeous Victorian Santa Claus Book (shown below) was a precious gift from the author, Vicky Howard of Art Design Joy blog.
Vicky was a contributor in the latest Christmas issue of my Simply Shabbilicious magazine where she shared her adorable Vintage Santa project.
I was so excited to receive a copy of Vicky’s book, which is filled with something close to my heart… Victorian images. There was another gorgeous surprise tucked into the back cover as well…. several real vintage postcards. Thank you Vicky!!
If you’d like to find out more about Vicky’s book, here’s an aff link to The Book of Santa Claus on Amazon.
Looking back at the photos I snapped, I realised our living room is filled with handmade whimsy…
3 fabric Tilda Reindeers… (pattern book here)
….a troupe of recently made Christmas Pixies (free pattern here)
A Skating Tilda Angel doll (pattern book here)….
…. and a collection of Sugared Gingers hanging out in the kitchen (free pattern here).
No wonder I’m enjoying the living room so much… it’s got the handmade touch I adore!!
Did you see my shabby Christmas in the craft room tour?
There’s no red to be found in there!
