|The inspiration for decorating my garden shed.|
I don't have a country property to pillage greenery from so I bought up some natural wreaths and urn arrangements at the grocery store. I even decorated my little garden shed but it needs more work, when I have it looking fully festive I'll take a photo.
I was heavily inspired by the little shed above, I like the paper on the inside of the windows, nice touch isn't it?
In other festive news I've found a Christmas china pattern for my table.

My Dad started collecting Christmas dishes for my daughters many years ago, the dishes collect and grow. One has an English pattern and the other an American, both gold-rimmed and appropriately cheery.
I found my dishes at a home discount store and was instantly attracted to them, the outdoor Christmas scene reminded me of a holiday story I loved as a child: Cranberry Christmas.
It's funny, I hadn't thought of that book in years and years, yet the humble green and red decor and the windows lit up from within brought the storybook back to my mind completely.

Do you have Christmas dishes? Did you buy them yourself or were they collected for you?
I hope your Sunday is a peaceful one, and if you are going to a Santa Claus parade today I hope you have fun!
