I forgot to add quite a few things to my new homewares post yesterday, so I thought I’d share them with you now before I forget again..  I found these extra deep cake tins in Wilko. The shelf price said £3, although when they scanned it, the set came up as £10, so I don’t know if there was an error, but I got the set for £3! I love the pastel colours and the cute patterns on them. This pink glass cake stand was only £2.99 from Home Bargains. I couldn’t resist it, despite me already having a tonne…

So I’ve not been online much and have been living the quiet life for the last week! But I was back to work again…

I’m not quite finished with all my Christmassy blog posts just yet! I wanted to show you all of my decorations and pretty festive things that we’ve got up around the house. We put your Christmas tree up the first weekend of December, but I kept on adding to it as I kept on buying new things.. oops! It’s finally finished now and I’m so happy with it. I think it looks much better than last years (although I’ve lost my favourite gingerbread man decoration!) and it’s really full and mostly coordinating with the Nordic red and white theme. All…
