The Great #CraftBlogClub Gift Swap

CraftBlogClub Secret Santa 2015 | The World of Suzy Homemaker

Hey you! Happy New Year and welcome back to The World of Suzy Homemaker.

So that's it. Done. Dusted. Over for another year. The tree is down and the posh baubles have been carefully stored. Christmas, my friends, has well and truly left the building. Was it a good one where you are? Did the red-suited fat man put something nice in your stocking? I do hope so.

As you know, Beloved and I don't 'do' Christmas, but even we managed to get in on the act, acquiring not one but THREE yummy new bottles for the OneandSeventy whisky shelf. Mind you, we did also lose a few.

Say no more.

Christmas - the perfect time for a good defrag

Xmas-Brain-Overload.jpg

Don't you sometimes feel in need of a right good defrag?

If you're thinking anything other than a computer analogy then you, my friend, have a filthy mind!

I'm referring of course to ram. Thinking room.

Headspace.

DIY Bauble Wreath

Easy peasy DIY Bauble Wreath | The World of Suzy Homemaker www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

Stanley has been upstaged. By golden balls. Though sadly not those of the David Beckham variety (I wish!)

For the first time since Beloved brought him home from Sainsbury's, Stanley the Stag has been rudely taken from his habitat in the OneandSeventy living room, to make way for a rather luscious bauble wreath.

You may have spotted it during my recent Christmas Home Tour. Well... you could hardly miss it, could you?

Christmas Decorations 2015: Go Bling or Go Home

The World of Suzy Homemaker's Christmas Decorations 2015 | www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

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!

A Very Vintage Christmas

@tvs_events - A Very Vintage Christmas | www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

Now I am all for progress. In fact you could say I'm rather fond of my mod cons and creature comforts. But I'm also not averse to something a little more vintage.

Now you might think this is my cue to mention Beloved. A classic he may be but sadly, I'll always be the antique in the family!

While my style might be more contemporary than traditional, it's a fact... Some things were just better in the good old days. And that includes butter knives.

Yep. Butter knives.

Christmas decoration storage

Christmas Decoration Storage by www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

I don't have a "this is the easiest tutorial in the world ever" category but if I did... this would be in it.

Now I don't want you getting too excited. This is not rocket science, but I thought I'd share with you a neat idea for organising your Christmas decorations.

Erm, Sue? It's the middle of January?

Yeah, I know. But what with other demands on my time (I have a business to run, you know!), everything but the tree and lights have been sitting in my office since I took them down. Whilst it might be a little late, I still wanted to share with you this easy peasy storage idea, as it can be used for anything.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from The World of Suzy Homemaker

It's no secret that Beloved and I don't "do" Christmas. There is no pile of pressies under the tree or turkey cooking away in the oven. But as we slob out in front of the tellybox in our pyjamas, I wanted to take a moment to drop by and wish every single one of you a very Merry Christmas.

I hope your days are merry and bright and your festivities joyful and triumphant.

Thank you for visiting my little corner of the interweb these past few months and for making The World of Suzy Homemaker my Happy Place. I am enjoying this blogging journey more than I ever imagined and I love having you with me along for the ride.

See you next year!

Beloved and I may not do Christmas, but we definitely do Christmas decorating.

Well, I do.

Beloved would be happy if he never saw another bauble again.

NEVER gonna happen!
