We spent the day with our sweet little girl yesterday. Darn she is cute. Almost walking and a laugh that melts your heart. I have been catching up on my blogging this morning and now it is time for all of us to go into the studio and have some Christmas Tea ( or whatever you fancy!)

I love Christmas movies. I have a mini dvd player in the studio and when I work this time of year there is always a Christmas movie on. When I was decorating the studio it was "LOVE ACTUALLY" for the 3rd time this season. If you have not seen this film you will love it.

I found these wooden cutouts a couple of years ago in a craft store for $1. I painted them red, they look so nice in my old doors.

My studio is very Scandinavian so I kept the decorating light and simple. I always wanted a blue tree and found a small on at the end of last season. The one in the window I sprayed with snow and decorated with white and blue bells and glass snowflakes.

I have always wanted to pool white lights on the floor but with the cats in the house I never dared. I had a left over string and it looks wonderful on the french doors with my Wizard of Oz stocking. Three white lit trees sit by the dining table. My grandmothers mirrors make the perfect backdrop.

These cute little Santa Boots were from my grandmothers collection. They sit in front of another great buy, this metal tree candle holder was only $5. at HomeSense Christmas in July sale.

All work is put away until after the New Year. This is a time for family and friends.

Penny & I are enjoying our visit so much. Let's just sit here by the fire all day. What more could you ask for, good atmosphere, a festive time of year and great friends to share it with.


  1. Absolutely beautiful! Penny is a love, stays with her mommy all day. I had no idea the other day how huge your studio is. Is it an addition to your home or freestanding? Would love to see more pictures of your home, it must be as gorgeous as the studio.
    Merry Christmas

  2. Beautiful, calm, warm, a place that I would to be in. Your dog looks so content! Love it all!

  3. Your studio is so amazing. I love your Scandinavian inspired decor. It is so warm, elegant and inviting. Everything is just stunning, Sue.
