We had our first Christmas Party here on the farm on December 1st.

Despite my very expensive Viking oven going on the blink, and I just found out they may not be able to get parts to repair it, fingers crossed, the food was still very good.  I had to improvise using my crock pot and sending my husband out to buy a counter top oven, but I persevered and all went well.

Lots of delicious wine, I broke out my lovely Sophie Conran Christmas plates, my Scandinavian kitchen Christmas corner was lovely and everyone took home a gift bag full of Confetti Peanut Butter Fudge.  One party down and 2 to go!

Christmas decorations have been going up in our farmhouse for a week now.  This is a pretty old fashioned looking banner I found at HomeSense this year.  Reminds me of one my Great Grandmother used to have.

The kitchen is finished.  Lights, tiny trees and paper stars are looking lovely.  The cushions are dressed and ready for company.

I needed something in light pink for our new Bohemian Living Room.  I was in HomeSense and found 2 fabulous wreaths from the Fall.  Reduced from $60 each to just $8.  One had white pumpkins the other had sunflowers.  I removed those, I will use them again for the Fall, and replaced them with white poinsettias from the Dollar Store and I found a couple of bunches of Rose Gold poinsettias at Michaels.  For sound $25 for both I now have new wreaths for Christmas and Thanksgiving.  Also had enough rose gold poinsettias to fill my voltive candle holders.

The Bohemian Living Room is finished except for the big tree.  Lot of glitter and Tomtes this Christmas.

Paper stars in the windows, rose gold mylar balls in the other window, Santas, trees and candles on the old boxes and the "boys" keeping watch from the top of the Pine Cupboard.  All in all it is shaping up to be a Very Merry Christmas already.

It's my favourite time of year, Halloween!  Rufus and I worked yesterday decorating outside of MY HIPPIE HEART Farm.  The new Olive Green paint and New Orlean's Voodoo Purple shutters look very hauntingly beautiful with the decorations.

Rufus is always a lot of help with decorating he has such good taste.  Witches, pumpkins and ghosts are lurking outside on the farm waiting to come out on All Hallows Eve.

Today I will be decorating inside the farmhouse and tomorrow I am back out in STUDIO ATTICUS to  work on some more up cycled vintage silk sari kimonos and kimono jackets for MY HIPPIE HEART.
