    merry christmas – festive wreaths

    December 20, 2012

    It’s nearly upon us. Christmas is just round the corner. Only one more weekend:) Kids are getting very excited but it’s also us adults who are waiting in anticipation. Has everyone sent their cards? Bought and wrapped all presents? It’s thursday and the clock is ticking! Tick tock, tick tock!

    This here is my last post for 2012. I’ll be off on holidays first thing monday morning, so will clock off today. I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you, every single one, who has taken time out to read my posts or simply looked at my photos. I know there was a confusion over my 100th post, but today is ACTUALLY my 100th post:) No, I did not plan this, but it’s rather fitting!

    For those of us who blog, we know what a labour of love it really is. I certainly wouldn’t have enjoyed this ride without you guys! All i ever set out to do is inspire you and demonstrate that life can be full of colour and that we can all practice ‘colourliving’.

    A big gratitude and a huge thank you to my blogging family. You mean the world to me!

    Ok, so as a parting post for 2012 i decided to ride around london and find different and interesting wreaths. Most of you might have already got yours. For those, who are still in need for some guidance or inspiration, here are a few of my favourites.

    What i learned is that big is not necessarily better, less is definitely more, home-made will nearly always beat bought and that considering your door colour is a really good move. I hope that some of these will tickle your fancy and maybe give you ideas for next year.

    wreaths oranges

    wreaths green on green

    wreaths recycled

    wreaths small berries

    wreaths big berries

    wreaths owls

    wreaths plastic xmas

    wreaths blackcurrants

    wreath holly

    wreaths red on red

    wreaths white

    wreaths tartan

    So, what do you think? Any favourites? I hope there is something for everyone! To be honest, this is the first time i’ve actually seen so many diverse wreaths.

    It wouldn’t be proper to sign off without wishing you all the absolute best festivities, whichever way you might celebrate them! I hope you all have a wonderful break, a restful holiday and i will see you back here on tuesday 1st january 2013.

    I can’t wait! Much love x
