i finally have a Christmas theme

Greetings all,
Well after being berated by many a Christmas decoration sales person & Christmas decorating enthusiasts (Tania!!) for NOT having a theme thought out for Christmas . . . it appears i finally have one.  Birds.  I've been scouring Myer, David Jones, Bed Bath Table, Typo & The Bredbo Christmas Barn for decorations, before i realised . . . i did have a theme after all
I'm liking silver, white, red.
 With a good hint of aqua blue.
 I still love the hearts which are everywhere right now, giant jingle bells & a few angels for good measure.
There are more Babushkas to be added too. 
Christmas theme or not, these are the things i have found i'm naturally drawn to for our tree.  Tonight i'm working on more handmade items to add to the collection from Shop Handmade, yes, more birds, hearts, angels & fun things, like GingerBreadMen & jolly Santas!!  I bought 3m of felt today.  Then add the lot to the decorations we have stored in the linen cupboard, we'll have a beautiful tree.
  Off to chomp out some die cut paper garlands too.  I'm loving twine, washi tape, folk printed stickers . . . love this time of year, the preparation is as much fun as the giving, joy, Summer & smiles on Christmas Day.  Getting the children involved makes it even more beautiful.  Love Posie

I can only imagine how amazing your house must look for Christmas! The birds are a lovely idea for a theme.

I love your collection of decorations! I don't have a theme (shh, don't tell). Can't believe we are so close to Christmas :)

Posie, did you see The Lark's latest post?

She has some Christmas cards ... one of which features a little person and a dove. Thought it may tie-in with your Christmas theme.

We don't do Christmas, its just not our thing, but I do love the idea of decorating to a theme and I think yours is just lovely. I'm really looking forward to watching how you pull it all together.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Christmas time! Your ornaments look lovely. We get a real tree and go for the mish mash approach to decorating! Hope all is wonderful with you :) x x

Love the red and aqua together, and silver jazzes it up another notch!

We LURVE the Bredbo Christmas Barn and pull in every year on the way back from the snow - we didn't go this year, so probably saved ourselves a fortune! The pancake house a few doors down is too marvelous for words.
Love the birds. Getting all Christmasy excited now.
Enjoy your preparations.
