white christmas



Dreaming of a simple natural white Christmas.




Hello..
It seems everyone is starting to think about Christmas. 
Every year i plan on being organised early but somehow end up in a busy shopping mall on Christmas Eve! 


Driftwood trees for a hot Australian Christmas


Stamped gift tags with tiny starfish


Potted driftwood - paint a terracotta pot white, fill with sand & shells. Tie on a nautical rope. 



What kind of Christmas are you dreaming of?

  4. I love the Christmas trees! I have been thinking of making something similar, but seeing as I am suffering a serious lack of driftwood I am going to use sticks from my paddock!

  9. this looks like a great idea. We will be having christmas up the coast and I'm sick of dragging out the same old christmas tree with the same old decorations which are normally covered in cockroach poo...I need a fresher more simple look. Thanks for sharing

  16. I know I should be way into Christmas plans but it's just not happening. Still trying to get ready for Thanksgiving company. I have to say your driftwood and shell tree is inspiring me to get a move on. That's just too adorable! Something like this would go perfectly at my house.

  27. These are lovely ideas. For your white driftwood - was your wood that bleached or did you have to paint it?
