Christmas Tour...

Hi all! Tomorrow (assuming I can work out the international time zones) I am joining in my first linky party over at Nesting Place. If you want to check out the tour, click on the button on the right.

So here is a little tour of my house as I get ready to host the 'big family Christmas'. Come on in! I decided to start the new colour scheme right at the front door. The famous Eddie Ross wreath has pride of place in the lounge, along with some simple bursts of colour in the new theme.

Bowls full of baubles add lots of punch for little dollars. (These are all plastic!) The tree - also themed for the very first time! Luckily my multi-coloured ornament collection of many years included plenty of red, aqua and silver, so I only had to buy a few new pieces.
Couldn't resist this little guy. He's new. (How could I go past the aqua feathers, I ask you?!)
I shopped the house for accessories the right colour, so that I could have a little bit of Christmas everywhere...
and even the smallest room in the house deserves some festive cheer.
I added some sweets in my colour for the season (these are sugared almonds) as they are a fun and cheap way tie in any little area.
And finally, as this is Queensland, I have added a wreath and fairy lights to our outdoor entertaining area. This space will get plenty of use on the big day, so why not?
Hope you enjoyed the tour. Come back soon!
