Christmas Home Tour: a white, Nordic Christmas house

Hello all. Welcome to the final day of my 12 Days of Christmas decorating series. Wow what a trip this was. As always some of the projects I did turned out so much better than I thought, others never made it to the blog because of total failure and than there were the ones that surprised even me because I didn’t see them coming until they started to develop under my hands.

Christmas Chalkboard Doodles

This post should be called ” the misunderstood chalk board”.  You see I have this rather cool chalk board door in my kitchen.

When I made it, I had visions of monthly ubercool graphics and drawings on it. Something to take the chalkboard with us through the seasons and special events.

Blame Pinterest, it is chockfull of beautiful chalkboard boards all the time. I thought how hard can it be.

Well I found out……

The little girl that is so jealous of her girlfriend across the street.

Because her Christmas tree is bigger, and they have a tree with lights outside, and a giant wreath on the door, and….

Goodday everyone. Are you ready? Want to see what else I came up with in this series of Christmas decorating?

Okay then. Welcome to day 7 of 12 Days of Christmas Decorating.

Today we have some window sill decorating going on.


Ever since I did my double layered Roman blinds I love decorating our window sill in the bay window. Now that there are no longer curtains hiding the window sill at night whatever I do can be enjoyed all day long.

This is what I came up with:

What would Christmas be without at least one little easy Christmas vignette that you can pull together in an instant? Well?

My outside Christmas table decorations

Christmas garden table decoration_-2

I had totally different plans for my Christmas terrace this year. They were elaborate, and crafty and possibly brilliant…..

And then I thought who am I kidding here, if I try to pull that off, I’d be lucky if I have it finished for Christmas in July.

So when I was walking through the garden center this year, to check out their Christmas displays (over here it is the garden centers that have the most elaborate and beautiful Christmas exhibitions), I totally fell in love with all the wintery terrace plants out there.

And I changed plans there and then on the spot and starting filling up my cart with real live goodness from mother nature herself.

I really love how my garden table turned out this year. It is worthy of a very good Christmas.

Come on over and CHECK IT OUT!
