Just loving the current trend of all things sparkly and kitsch for Christmas … it so takes me back to my childhood and so as you open the living room and look straight ahead you cannot help but notice the area that is usually my desk!

The customised lampshade on the upcycled sideboard that houses my paperwork and printer, sets the tone for this bright vintage theme.  Not everything that is bright, sparkles though, here and there you will see our wooden Tilly Ba Lou dala horses and stars, decorated with vintage fabrics and crochet.

A lichen covered fallen branch hosts a whole load of random decorations, including sparkly flashing rudolph earings (top right) and faux crystal baubles in shades of fuschia, torquoise, lemon and lime.  There in the centre is my crazy faerie (who normally sits in my knitting basket) surrounded by giant red paper snowflakes and glittering birdies with gorgeous tail feathers.

My collection of vintage coloured glass really comes into its own with a huge purple vase filled with brightly coloured beads and coloured lights.  I did try putting these in a clear glass globe but it was way too contemporary and besides I like the fact that the colours are more subdued.

Perched on the vintage floral cake plate are even more sparkly birdies, along with paper butterflies … oh and that thing I’m supposed to remember to back up my pc with … oops! … and you can just about see my red glittery reindeer peeping out from the jug of red roses, orange fuschia and tree ivy.

Apart from when you walk head on into the room, the only time you see this bright Christmas wonderland is when you sit on the sofa next to the winter woodland and peer through the rooms centrepiece of soft and romatic vintage elegance which we’ll bring to you tomorrow.

We hope your Christmas is already feeling bright with love and cheer in abundance.

Always with Love … Denise xxx
