Christmas makeover day

I woke up motivated today so have made the most of the fleeting mood and worked on the house for Christmas. A little Harry Connick and Michael Buble helped to inspire some Christmas spirit. I've done three trees now. I'm not sure if that's my limit this season... I love my snow tree so that might be the weekend project. If you are around, feel free to call in as I'm not opening to the public this year.

This is the progress:

 You can imagine how the introduction of the lolly jars had some small people very excited. I really should have held off a few more weeks but somehow even I couldn't resist...

And thanks to my friend Lowri and her awesome blog Papervine I finally did her paper covered lid project with Echo Park Seasons Greetings Plaid paper. Tim (9) said it looks just like Craigs Jam.


  1. That jar looks AWESOME!!
    I am definitely coming for a visit next weekend - your home looks so beautiful - and I want some tips with my camera too!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous. I haven't got my inspiration yet. This post may help. Thank you.
