Seasonal Decor

The World of Suzy Homemaker's Christmas Decorations 2015 |

Welcome to Christmas 2015 at OneandSeventy! Not only am I still in shock that it's December (where did the year go?), but would you believe we hadn't even seen the back of November and our tree was up already, the mantel was dressed and the twinkly lights were... well, twinkling?

I know. Who am I and what have I done with The Grinch? 

It's true. I'm not one for Christmas (especially before December!), but I did make a conscious effort this year to get cracking early on the decorations. It's my favourite part of the Season and I was determined to take my time and enjoy the process, rather than stress myself out trying to get everything done in a day. Just as well I did really, because both the tree and the mantel have been dressed, undressed, and re-dressed more than once!

For 26 years, my yardstick for the beginning of Christmas has been our son's Birthday. So, now that Number 1 has aged another year, I am delighted to declare Christmas at OneandSeventy officially <drumroll> open!

Halloween has officially left the building.


But before Samhain disappears entirely, my 2015 Halloween journey would not be complete without a virtual home tour.

Sit for a Spell - A Halloween chair makeover with free template | The World of Suzy Homemaker

I can't believe Samhain is only a few days away. Blimey! This year is whizzing past! It feels like only yesterday I started all my Halloween projects and now, I'm almost finished.

Soon I'll be on to the best bit. Decorating the house. Yay! I can't wait! Even though I am full of cold courtesy of Beloved and feeling pretty pants. Boo!

By way of an apology, he has offered to help ready OneandSeventy for all those Trick or Treaters. It *may* involve getting out his drill.

That'll learn him.

#stylingtheseasons Summer - @SuzyHomemakerUK

Yep! Summer's finally arrived! That may seem like old news already, but if you've been following along for a while, you'll know that in my world, we celebrate the changing of the seasons the old fashioned way – astronomically, rather than meteorologically. If you're wondering what on earth I'm going on about, I explain all in this post from last year.

OK, so I'm still a little late to the party, but I have a good excuse...honest! Beloved and I have been away again. We spent the Solstice weekend celebrating the union of England and Scotland at our Besties' wedding!

Wedding at Berkeley Castle, Gloucestershire, England - 20 June 2015

We don't scrub up too badly, huh?
