Like many people at the moment I am so excited because Christmas is coming! Yesterday we put up our tree and we have put out quite a few decorations also.
Here is our lounge area before the tree went up
And here is the lounge are with our decorated tree!
I will be changing many things over the next week or so by moving objects around, finding new and better places for things and buying a few new ornaments. I also plan to do some Holiday tablescaping on my sideboard. I am still trying to work out where I can put many things, especially this very special girl, an early birthday present from D! Isn't she angelic...
While I am still decorating and moving things around, I thought I would share some holiday pictures in the form of a mosaic from our family album. As I have said, this is my first mosaic post so it is pretty simple! I have included some pictures from our trip to Europe and Singapore last year, our trip to America a couple of years ago and a few images from the decorations I put up yesterday. The picture of Father Christmas in his fine RED gear was taken in London last year on Christmas day.
Doing this post has really got me in the mood for putting on some Carols, exploring other people's amazing blogs and starting to look for some new Holiday recipes!
Thanks so much to the people who have signed up to follow my blog. I really appreciate your support and your very kind words.
Today I am participating in Metamorphosis Monday which is a weekly party kindly hosted by Susan from one of my very favorite blogs "Between Naps on the Porch". Since I have been experimenting with the art of photo mosaics I will be posting my Holiday metamorphosis as a Mosaic and so I will be linking up with Mary from "The Little Red House" who is kindly hosting Mosaic Monday. I am also linking up with Mary's Ruby Tuesday over at Work of the Poet because I have a few splashes of Holiday RED thrown in! Thank you so much Susan, Mary and "The Teach" for giving me the opportunity to post with you!
Best wishes always,
Natasha In Oz
