I am a little obsessed with Christmas this year! All that glitter. All those lights. We went to the Festival of Trees here in Edmonton and discovered this beautiful tree decorated in blush tones, which you can see on my Instagram. So beautiful! School has ended until January which means I can relax, just a little, dream up some stories and enjoy each day to the max all the while decorating and re-decorating! Like these fantastic wintry window scapes for instance.
Inspiration comes from many sources for me, sunrise, my boys, endless magazines, furniture (of course!) and music. The soundtrack for these days, is an album I keep listening to over and over again, ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ by The National. And not just because my name is quoted! Each song fills my heart with hope for what or who comes next. Perfect for driving around these mild winter days and completing projects like hanging up the curtains I bought a month ago in anticipation of creating a pretty window .
The Christmas windows pictured above are beautifully curated with just the right amount of detail. High impact + low investment of time = brilliant! My kind of DIY project. Pretty Christmas bulbs, ribbon, a wreath, beaded strings, candles, lights, branches or other greenery, and any other props you love can be added to your window to complete the scene. This year less is more when it comes to decorating. I am only bringing out the items I adore for a simply decorated space the boys and I can cuddle up in, because the winter may have been warm so far, but let’s face it, Edmonton is cold! And the winter is long!
