What Do You Love About Your Holiday Home?

Well the sniffles finally caught up with me so I'm a bit late joining the "What do you love about your holiday home" party but don't they say better late than never??

Welcome to my home,

won't you step inside....
There's something to me about the "smell" of Christmas. A friend came round a few weeks ago and as we sat chatting she suddently exclaimed "It smells of Christmas" and I love that. Every room has some sort of Christmas inspired scent,
Come upstairs and I'll show you the tree in my room,

This year I have found a tree for my bedroom... it's pink! How could I resist?
How could I resist these vintage inspired ornaments to decorate it?
I also seem to have found a love for frog princes. It started when my mum brought me a small pill box and when I saw the ornaments when buying my tree I felt a theme coming on. I love the way Christmas gives you the opportunity to add small touches which just change something to being festive.... these cushions for one,

Mum has had these fairy lights for some time but never used them so we decided my bed was the perfect place this year,
Mum loves snow globes and we just love Santa carrying his Bloomingdales bag brought on one of our New York trips,
and a couple on top of the TV,
No Holiday home is complete without Santa,

We always have a real Christmas tree, I love the smell of it and the fun of trying to get it standing straight in its base,Here's some of my favourite ornaments,

The small touches appear in the kitchen like our tartan dinner set,

and Christmas cupcakes,And here are some corners of the home where reindeers comes to play,

holly, ferns and other greenery from the garden decorate picture frames,

I hope you enjoyed looking round my home, as I visit other friends homes I will add photos of their holiday decor, thank you for visiting and please come again,

Happy Holidays!

I do love that pink tree! It's charming! And I think you have the prettiest staircase I've ever seen. That would be my inspiration photo if I added one to our home.

Merry Christmas,
