Christmas Tweaking and a Few New Additions

I can't believe I'm still making Christmas things and tweaking our house 2 days before Christmas!

I braved the shopping centre yesterday and found some super cute Christmas bargains that had to find a home, in my home, before Christmas.

These cute little trees with cute little wooden bases were marked down from $25 to $3!

So I grabbed 2.

The wreaths were also marked down to $3 each.

Burlap and Bells Wreath

I got this wreath a few days ago on Christmas clearance for $2 and really wanted to make something  nice for our front door. 

I had a roll of burlap ribbon so I wrapped it round my wreath first and hot glued it in place.

Christmas Ornament Shadow Box

My husband's mother gave the children these cute little handmade Christmas ornaments a few years ago. They were so fragile that the kids used them once and I've had them in storage ever since. 

I came across them this year and decided to make a shadow box with them. 

I found this house shaped shadow box a few years ago at a
garage sale and thought it would be perfect.

A Little More Christmas ...

The Christmas Warehouse was having a sale so I popped in today and picked up a few more Christmasy things to share with you.
I knew this would be a great time to try out my new camera too. ;)

I got this really cute little reindeer. It's made of a straw like material.

I'm Excited About My New Camera!

I'm not photography expert, but I do try to produce pretty pictures for my blog. 

I have been wanting a new camera and I finally got one as a hand-me-down. It's the Canon EOS M. 

It takes far better quality photos than my previous carmera. The images are just crisper and show so much more detail. 

I'm so excited to be testing it out on upcoming blog posts!

I'd love to know what you think.

Our Christmas Front Verandah

I wasn't planning on decorating the front verandah, so I kept it quite simple.

During the day ...

I purchased a small green tree and placed it in a basket. Then decorated it with solar fairy lights and a big white bow.

Well, here she is ...
