I put up our Christmas Tree 3 weeks ago! I know, I know, very early but I was inspired after reading a Chrissy magazine and knowing all the weekends leading up to the big day were fully booked out for us that it may be the last lazy Sunday I had to do it! I didn't put much out this year as you will see, it only took me the afternoon and I must say I felt so organised after it was all complete knowing I had many weeks to enjoy it and there wasn't going to be a rush to put the tree up!

I decided that I was going to go with a theme of copper and white. I wasn't prepared to do-away with all the decorations I already had and buy new, I think that's a little extravagant as I would be likely to change the theme again another year. Instead I spray painted some of my old non-sentimental ones copper keeping aside all my white ones I already had and then I bought a few new ones as well.

It was a little windy outside so I set up to spray inside, not a great idea… it was getting a little foggy and the copper overspray would quickly ruin my kitchen! So I made a booth, just one of those plastic storage containers on its side, popped a box inside that that had been poked with toothpicks to rest some decorations on and got spraying outside this time! HaHa

I was really pleased with the result and no one knows they weren't bought that way!

Sorry its been a while since my last post, with everything nearly done around here (except the front yard our next project) I haven't had a lot to blog about. However I am popping the odd thing up on Insta/FB so please check out my pages and follow me!
