Morning! As I said at the beginning of this post I will be uploading a post a day in the run up to Christmas (starting Dec 1st) but I thought I would start with my inspiration for this years decor. I try and change each room each year, last years living room look was a kind of golden Baboushka which was lots of red, blues, whites and splashes of gold. This year it is white and mercury glass. It’s that champagne, gold, silvery loveliness that I want all over the tree and around the room. The kitchen/dining room was red skandi last time and this year it will be vintage (I have a specific image in mind, I think). Not only are these wonderful Christmas ideas, but, hello weddings! Like most things in my life, they can quite often be transferred to a wedding situation and mercury glass would look stunning, especially in the colder months with lots of fairy lights and candles. mercury rising

I spent the week having a look at what I already had, and purchased some new items. Pottery Barn has a whole mercury shop ( I can only think of Friends when I visit that website) but shipping to the UK is a ballache. If in doubt, shop at Cox and Cox…

Next – £22 (they have some wonderful items this year but I will not be shopping with them again after then signed me up for a credit account without my permission) I also bought this for the mantelpiece and these baubles.

I also bought these string bauble lights from Laura Ashley. No idea where I will put them but they looked cute. When everything arrives I will be blogging as I dress the house. I think I spent £60 in total on new decorations, I am fresh out of the family home so I’m still building up my stash each year, I assume one year I won’t buy any more? Right?!

Do you change your decor or stick to a beautiful tried and tested scheme? Is this all too early to be discussing Christmas? The answer to that is no. Real wedding on the blog this afternoon!
