2012 favourites

Thank u all for Xmas wishes they were very much appreciated:) If u haven't heard from me it's because unfortunately blogger doesn't allow me to comment on your blog anymore (!!) and I can't get access to your email address either. I hope you will forgive me (I couldn't leave without writing this post and explaining what happened) :)
I also hope that you all had a lovely day with your families yesterday with plenty of fun games and presents and that you are having a great one today.
I leave you with some of my favourite images collected in 2012 from favourite sites and pinterest.

Today's inspiration / blue + purple

I'm a bit obsessed with blue and purple at the moment, so so cool and chic...
The image below is just perfect...the perfect shade of blue and the perfect shade of purple sit happily wonderfully styled and photographed. The image is from pinterest. 
(I would love to know who styled this great shot and who photographed it, if anyone happens to know the answer please leave me a comment. Thanks)

Have a great day everyone :)

Catch up soon,

The festive season has officially begun at our house, the tree has come out of the box and so have various decorations, nativity sets, reindeers, garlands, the lot...and although this year I have fallen in love with the scandinavian Xmas images I see all over the net (dreamy whites and gorgeous blues mixed with silver...sigh!) my Xmas tree is going to look very different...lots of red, green, some silver, some gold and all the other bits and pieces that we have collected over the years; some handmade by the children at school some at home, some gifts and so on... It's all going to be very colourful and different from what I see around which I like and plus it's us...which I like a lot!

(Images from around the house, kids building the tree, baubles and stars and festive hints on my desk :))

I'm going to add some real pine branches later on on the mantlepiece and a few more places (gotta have a mixture of real and fake and definitely can't be without the beautiful pine scent at Xmas time)

Come back to see what our decorated tree + house looks like a bit later on ;)

Have a joyful week,

More Paris please...

Another Parisian beauty...I love the clever use of colour, the details, the art but most of all I admire the way the owners mix their everyday pieces with their designer ones, that's an art too.

See more gorgeousness here

Have a brilliant day
