The History of Christmas ~ a Christmas #Infographic

Have you ever wondered how Christmas originated?



Did you know that Julius Caesar introduced the Julian calendar, which resulted in December 25th being declared the ‘winter solstice’ and that Pope Gregory I eventually adapted the 'Pagan' festival to become a Christian celebration? Did you know that Christmas trees did not appear until 1835?

The real spirit of #Christmas

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. Calvin Coolidge

25 ways to decorate your stairs & banisters this Christmas!

Hello dear Christmas friends!

It's a been a busy week at our place and now I am on school holidays I am very excited about catching up with my Christmas bloggy friends and finding some new ideas for my Christmas decorating from Pinterest.

I always struggle with decorating for Christmas Down Under. For a start it's summer so it seems strange putting up wintry decorations. I also don't have a fireplace so I don't have anywhere to hang my stockings! Luckily I have found some fun and festive alternative ways to hang our stockings... with care!

Here are 25 ways to decorate your stairs and 
banisters this Christmas!

Decorating Ideas for Christmas

Hello sweet Christmas friends! Thanks you so much for stopping by to visit me at my Christmas bloggy home.

Can you believe that there are less than 100 days until Christmas? I've noticed that Pinterest is full of wonderful Christmas ideas, some stores here in Australia have already got their Christmas displays ready and  lots of Christmas blogs are posting more and more frequently....I guess I'd better get myself organised and find some more Christmas inspiration!




For today's post I thought I could share some of the gorgeous wintry and Christmassy pictures I've pinned and tumbled at my Christmas tumblr blog. Some ideas are classic, some are modern, some a little bit farmhouse but I hope you will agree they are all festively fabulous!


Let the Christmas decorating begin!

Tuesday Tune ~ Christmas in July!

Welcome Christmas friends! Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me at my Christmas bloggy home today-it's so wonderful to see you!

It's been a while since I've posted over here so I thought today, July 25th would be the perfect day to do a special Christmas post to share some very special gifts that I received from a sweet blogger from New Zealand as part of a Christmas in July celebration that was organised by Alyx, Daryl and Cecilia.


I was so lucky to be paired with the gorgeous Sinead who blogs at Sinead in the Sun.


Sinead not only sent me gifts that truly matched my personality, I've since found by reading her blog that she actually made some of them! I am so honoured that Sinead spent so much of her valuable time making some of these wonderful goodies!

Keeping The Christmas Spirit Alive!

Hello Christmas friends! Long time no see!

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting today. It's been such a long time! I am afraid I have not been a very good Christmas blogger this year. I am always thinking about Christmas though and I have been keeping the Spirit of Christmas in my heart every single day. I've been thinking about Christmases past and am so excited to tell you that there are only 195 days until Christmas!
