I'm really starting to get excited about the holidays over here {maybe even more than I usually do... is that even possible?!} Not only did I get the much-anticipated email from Micaela yesterday, with my Christmas ornament swap partner's details {yay! time to start researching, and shopping!}, but I also got a festive parcel in the mail from Cassie!

Look what was inside... the Ideal Home's"Complete Guide to Christmas" magazine! I poured myself a cup of tea and sat down with it just as soon as I could, to browse all the marvellous ideas inside {all 437 of them!} and start jotting down the ones I'm definitely going to try this year. English decor and style magazines are always so pretty, and this one was no exception.

I love the holiday bunting on the bed!

Thank you, girls, for the holiday inspiration. Let the Christmas season begin!


  1. Me tooo, Erin! So inspired for Christmas. I'm working on a care package for Gabe right now, and that makes it all Christmas-lovey. :)

    What a sweet package from Cassie! English Christmas decor is flawless, and I just wish I could get mags like that here in the states!

    Turn up that Bing, lady! :)

  2. I am so excited for christmas too! I cannot wait till the 1st of December roles around so I can put up the tree. How sweet of Cassie to send you such lovely inspiration!

  3. I am so pleased you got it! I was so worried when I realised it didn't have a customs sticker on and had visions of it being lost in the postal world forever!

    Jam packed full of ideas! So pleased you love it too.

  4. OOooooo! This looks lovely I wish we had this mag in the states!

  5. i've gone out to a couple of places searching for the *perfect* ornament only to realize that even with the plethora of options out there, i have no idea what your tree style it! classic? modern? matchy-matchy?


Yay! I love comments.
