Happy Saturday

Watching Holiday Inn and eating pistachio nougat. No gym today after all, leaning more (like you) towards the idea of beginning in January after the glazed ham and plum pudding are safely out of eyeshot. Seems like a better, safer plan don't you think?
Can't decide which decoration path to go down? Bright colours and jingle bells or muted antique silvers and silent nights?

Sounds like a good Saturday!
Your decorations are lovely - as I am very much enamoured of silver at the moment I'd go for the vintage effect....
Happy weekend,

I love Holiday Inn. I just blogged about it too. http://justafewofemilysfavoritethings.blogspot.com/2009/12/im-dreaming-of-white-christmas.html Enjoy!

Personally, I love the muted silver look.

And I'm with you, gym is definitely for the new year. But some quiet night-time walks in the meantime would fit in with your silent nights theme and help work that nougat off.

Love your beautiful blog!

surprised myself by going to the gym three days in a row last week. am planning to go back in Marcrh...my decorations have developed into, shall we say, an eclectic mix of allsorts. Found a cup of tea for my tree yesterday! Enjoy your nougat.

I like both colors, but between the ones you have here, I like the muted gold and silvers the best. And yes-Jan. seems like a good time to think more about those healthier foods!

Bright colours and jingle bells, it is Christmas after all, the season of joy and happiness! Although the vintage silver palette is pretty too.
I'm with you on the exercise front, I'm waiting till January....

I love the muted silver tones...but whatever makes you happy is best!

I so agree, January is close, enjoy the holidays!

Silver and silent night...sounds like a nice thought before entering dream land...

Sorry! I am working on getting a proper blog up and running (which is why my Blogger blogs are private - they're not fit for public consumption yet!). I don't use my LiveJournal very much these days either.

I saw the list because I'm working at a homes mag at the moment and their blog was voted #33. Tee hee!

Anyway, you deserve it, your blog is always so beautiful and such an inspiration.
