Fabulous fingerplates

Feeling festive!

I have come over all festive in the last few days, thanks to the first frosty morning of winter, and am thinking about decorations and how to turn our partly-finished house into a seasonal delight of sparkle and cosiness!

I am quite a traditionalist in terms of Christmas decorations, and wheel out the same old baubles in red, gold, silver and white. Add in touches of greenery, a vast amount of glitter, and I'm a happy Christmas bunny! I do treat 'the house' to a new adornment every year, building up memories - son number 1 already remembers where we were when we bought the sleigh, train or star. His memory puts mine to shame! Now, what was I talking about?!....

And I've just thought of another way to bring a touch of festive glamour to our home without the tree branches groaning from the weight and sinking slowly to the floor - glancing at the Kind Designs glossy vibrant red fingerplate, it seemed exactly the right shade of red to match Santa's suit! Add a sandblasted starburst and the whole door becomes a cheerful 'ho ho ho' all of its own!

Or plump (Father Christmas style!) for a mirrored beauty, where the bevelled edge will sparkle against a backdrop of candlelight and twinkling fairy lights.

Kitchen progress: Ceiling painted and sockets fitted (brushed chrome in case you're wondering!). Two authentic Art Deco globe lights will be hanging over the island (when the island is built, that is). Are we getting there?

  1. Congrats on starting up a blog you will really enjoy blog land, everyone is so friendly and helpful :) I love your little spotty heart, I bought a few several years ago on a holiday to Woolacombe, couldn't resist them, have them hanging on handles and hooks all year!

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!
