The bets are on for a White Christmas

The bets are on for a white christmas here in the UK. One man has bet £1 million that it does snow on Christmas Day and if he wins he gets £14 million. hmmmm I don't think so ... we may be faking it like the pic above (from Vakre magazine).
WELL IT DID SNOW HERE
..... but its not Christmas yet and so can't count.

I came back from dancing last night in a flurry of snow - and by the morning there was a thick blanket of beautiful white snow. So as the British always say it won't last though .

Anyway thought i would share this gorgeous magazine with you - yes its is a Scandinavian magazine and i cannot understand a thing in it LOL - but the pictures of interior homes and ideas in this magazine are always beautiful and inspiring - they are predominantly white and grey interiors with a splash of colour -
the christmas stockings trimmed in fur are very festive and popular this season

and love the image and the script on this cushion
I love the fur trimmed cones - i must do one like this

slip covered tub chairs make this scene look so cosy
silvered balls all grouped together
I love all these festive images
Vakre is one my favorite magazines i wish they would translate it so i could actually read it too (blush :-0)
Oh well off i must go and creative some of my own

Come on over to New Jersey. The worst part of the storm just missed us yesterday but still dumped over a half a foot out there. I'm more than happy to share my snow with you!

Oh, I just love that magazine. What great ideas and images! Hope it snows for you. We have snow on the ground here in my little corner of the world, and I think it may stay (fingers crossed) through Christmas.

Merry Christmas

LOL that's a lot of snow for me, who doesn't get any! I'm more than happy to have Christmas in Summer, though it is very pretty to have a white Christmas. Only thing is, you guys are stuck with that snow for a whole season - no thanks! lol! Have a lovely Christmas!
