We made it this far!   The most wonderful time of the year is officially here.  I think we're all ready to put a little jingle on, twinkle lights and all.

Here's what I'm working on this week.   Thank you for coming along!


Happy December,

Amaryllis
are a mainstay of my Christmas decorating in every room.   I keep a  big concrete urn on my kitchen island, filled with several varieties so something different is also coming on next - this is part of last year's crop.     I order in September from Van Engelen,  with my spring bulb order, but their site is pretty picked over by now - each of their amaryllis bulbs yields at least two stalks.   
Plant some extra bulbs to use in arrangements
It's not too late - just buy them already underway from Home Depot or your local nursery (still much more reasonable than buying the blooms themselves in a few weeks).   Here's a great piece from Flower Magazine on arranging with amaryllis.
Put your feet up
Ok, so these are not actually for me, but I just ordered them for my step grandchildren.  From Hanna Andersson.
Prancer dangles
Perfect for jazzing up any look.   Shown on another fabulous Nina Campbell fabric
Favorite Instagram accounts
for holiday decor inspiration.   The Brits really have it going on this year with Christmas displays.   From Neill Strain in Belgravia, also with a kiosk in Harrods.
Willow Crossley creates
The british floral designer is my one of my new favorite instagram accounts.   Watch her quick video here, on how she plants her amaryllis in bell jars.    Very clever.
Fair Isle sweaters
Did you fall just a little in love with Willow Crossley too?   And she has a thing for Fair Isle sweaters - just like me!   I just ordered this one.   Do you think it's too much?   I kind of love it.   Makes me nostalgic for my youthful stash of Dean's sweaters.
Prancer dangles
Unlike the above sweater, I'll be getting some wear out of these all winter.
The Jingle Bell dangle
New on the website, along with new charm bracelets, perfect gift earrings and more.
Another favorite floral account, EarlyHoursLtd
When I tell my sweet husband how many wreaths I want (him) to hang on the front of the house this year, I think I'll show him this photo as my back up plan.  Fingers crossed.
