It's not too early anymore!!!

YES!!! I finally coerced my husband into letting me get started with the Christmas decorations yesterday. He's been saying it's too early for MONTHS now ;-)

First up is our bookshelf. It's always stacked with random bits and pieces, books, ornaments etc but some little additions have Christmafied it nicely :-)

I love how elegant something as simple as some pretty baubles in a crystal glass bowl can look.

Then there's the mantlepiece...

I might add a grassy gold garland to this scene, haven't decided yet.

And of course, the TREE!!!

It's seven feet tall, the perfect height for our living room.

We went for a nice traditional red, gold and silver theme this year and I love it! Our decorations are a combination of new, old, homemade, gifts and some from my childhood Christmas trees that my Dad gave me :-)

I can't wait for Christmas day!!! It's lovely and cold and festive here in Dublin and we are really enjoying it!! Is your tree up yet? I know some people started decorating last month!!! They're not married to my husband ;-)

Love all the Christmassy touches. I have some left over baubles so am going to hunt out a glass dish to pop them into. Merry Christmas xoxo
