Christmas at home


Christmas curtain detail, originally uploaded by -syko-.

I'm so proud of myself for making these curtains for our kitchen window this morning. It was a great frosty morning and I woke up to see the Christmas lights we put on the balcony yesterday so I got a good start. We are going to have a real old fashioned Christmas this year, twelve people(!) around the table and then you just can't have a poppy curtain in your window, can you? I know it's not even December yet, but I have a Christmas fair next weekend so there won't be much time for decorating. And if there is something I love it is decorating my home for Christmas. Our home is quite a mess usually, I feel I have more important things to do than to run around picking up toys and clothes and stuff, but the month before Christmas I become as much of a perfectionist as someone like me can be. If only the kids would join me, or even play with red and white toys only. It would look so nice....

What a lovely curtain!
I feel exactly the same about cleaning and decoration for Christmas. It is somehow more important to me than spring cleaning... or any cleaning actually. ;)
Let's make it a completely red and white (and green!) Christmas!

Your new curtains are beautiful!
I'm imagining this colour coordinated Christmas now...red and white toys and 12 guests in red and white too! It's gorgeous!

Heehee! I love the thought of having kids playing only with red-and-white toys near Christmas. They'd go so well with the decor!
