Read our latest Blog Post "7 Alternative Christmas Trees" by Jen Stanbrook.

http://bit.ly/1yVaAKL

For some, there’s nothing better than a traditional Christmas tree. You love the scent of the pine, the lush green colour, and the evocative nature of the tree and what it represents. But, in recent years, a trend has started to emerge. The trend for creating an alternative tree.
Even if you love the tradition of a real tree, this is still something you could try, particularly if you have space in another room, for a different style of tree. At home, we usually have two trees, one for me and one for the children (which avoids me hyperventilating over how the kids decorate the main tree – I just give them their own), so this is a great way to introduce a different style to your Christmas decorations.

Read our latest Blog Post "Pallet Wall Art Inspiration" by Jen Stanbrook.

http://bit.ly/1yH5Uru

Looking through Pinterest, I find that I’m seeing more and more creative wall art. It really is wonderful, if a little addictive, and so I thought it would be great to share a little of that inspiration on the blog today. A while ago I wrote a post showcasing some great wooden pallet projects for the home, and Pinterest is full of them, including some interesting ideas for pallet wall art. Pallets are freely available, and a wonderfully inexpensive product useful for DIY home accessory projects. So if you’re feeling creative and looking for wall art inspiration, look no further.

Creating something stylish and individual is a lovely way to add some Christmas cheer to your home too.

Read our latest Blog Post "Winter is for Candle Light" by Carole Poirot.

It’s dark and gloomy outside and that means one thing: I bring out my candles. The more the better. There’s something about this time of the year that I really like and the warming glow of candles is one of those things. Now, obviously, there are more candles and candle holders out there than any one household could ever need, so things need narrowing down a little. If you (like me) are a fan of big pillar candles, then you might be perfectly happy to simply place one of them onto a small glass coaster and be done with it. However, if you prefer the slim variety, then you will obviously need a candle holder.

Read our latest Blog Post "Advent Wreaths" by Carole Poirot.

If you’ve spent time in the nordic or germanic countries, you might be familiar with the traditional of having a Advent wreath with four candles. I remember moving to the UK a long time ago and nobody had heard of an Advent wreath – though that might have had something to do with the area I moved to… I went on to painstakingly explain to the florist what it was I was looking for and managed to eventually carry my wreath home. Things have changed since and Advent wreaths and displays have become more commonplace.

We all like our homes to smell good, right? Opening the windows to let some fresh air in, cleaning and changing linens, all these are things we can do to make our homes smell pleasant. Of course we can take it a step further by adding some fragrance. Making our homes smell seasonal is something that helps to create a homely atmosphere and has even been linked to quicker sales – if that’s what you’re after. Buying fragrances can be a bit of a minefield.
