Twinkle, Twinkle like a Star!

Wow, one week until Christmas!!

After spending the last week in New York City with all the beautiful festive lights and displays, not to mention the Christmas tree, I am truly ready for Christmas. And after helping my mother in law *waves hello* this weekend inject some Christmas beauty into their cottage I wanted to share my favourite secret weapon for Christmas decorating - Twinkle lights and candles.

They are absolutely beautiful and I do not believe a home is complete at Christmas without both of these. They can hide a multitude of sins and cast magic throughout your home.

I am really looking forward to spending time at home leading up to Christmas amongst my very own wonderland complete with twinkle lights, christmas tree and cookies.

It's beginning to feel alot like Christmas...

Driving home from work, there are houses with twinkle lights glistening. Walking around a supermarket, Christmas songs are playing. I cannot help but have a silly smile on my face.

This past week I have been baking. A lot.  I have started hanging fairy lights in every room and making cute Christmas decorations for my new Dream Box Home venture, it really is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

Here are some inspiring images from my week.

A treat for my husband when he arrives home from work.

Fairy lights hanging from our mantle - after we tore off the old surround and found beautiful bricks behind and fitted with wood.

A special gift of homemade biscuits.

After having my new cookie cutters designed especially to hang on the side of a cup/glass I couldn't wait to use them........ and my new stencils!

Fairy lights along our bed and my own handmade padded heart.

More Dream Box Home designs.

Be warned, this blog is about to overload with festive fun. It all starts this weekend, Christmas tree hunting, baking, chutney making, Christmas movies and hopefully lots of inspiration for you!
