I don’t know about you, but I have sensed a real want for everyone to get festive this year. Maybe I have just channelled into this more this year in my effort to be more enthusiastic about Christmas (see my post, why so anti?), but November seems to have taken ages to get through before people can get the Christmas bedding on, decorations out and Christmas tunes on. Although things can’t truly kick off until December, I have still been busily pinning images for some festive inspiration to a dedicated Pinterest board.
I’ll be totally honest with you, I love having a Christmas tree, but it’s such a faff to get out, assemble and put away again a few weeks later –this isn’t me being Scrooge like, it is a faff. However, this year (and for those foreseeable), I can’t get my tree out, even if I wanted to. Why? Well unfortunately my beautiful bunny Lola (remember her here), sadly passed away earlier this year and despite that event completely breaking my heart, I did take delivery of a new member of the family over the summer. She –Winifred (@bunny_wini)- while still an indoor bunny, will be a lot bigger than Lola and therefore I needed to increase the size of the cage. Therefore, there is now simply not enough room for a tree… and let’s be honest, I’m not sure I trust Wini around one anyway, ha! So, I need to look for other ways to bring Christmas into my home and Pinterest is the perfect starting point.
Here are some of my favourite ideas from Pinterest so far –
I’ve found myself getting a little bit obsessed with deer and fawns I’ve noticed and I picked up a lovely brass deer ornament in TK MAXX the other week in order to replicate a similar idea to this below (keep an eye on my Instagram for my version coming soon).
