Magnolia Christmas Wreath and some Thank yous

Boy, it's busy isn't it?  Here is the Christmas wreath on my front door.  It's a beautiful twiggy magnolia wreath.

We have a magnolia 'little gem' in our front garden which is almost the same flower.

I've had this wreath for at least 6 years and I still love hanging it up every year.

And now for some thank yous.  Firstly to the lovely Paula from London, who has sent me the most beautiful Christmas presents.

How cute is this little red robin decoration?  and the K hook is from Anthropologie. Oh you know me so well my dear friend. I love it.

Paula makes the most beautiful handmade cards every year. These are her cards from the past two years - so pretty.

Some more thank yous.  The Liebster and Versatile Blogger awards have been making their way around my circle of bloggy friends, so I'd like to thank and highlight a few people.

Sarah is in Melbourne and has done some amazing DIY projects and transformations.  Check out this light she made for her master bedroom. 

Jeanetteann is from Adelaide.  She has some lovely vintage treasures, hand sewed this gorgeous doily above, and has written a book on How to Organise Your Home in 7 Easy Steps.

Mimi is in Brisbane .  She posted this great tutorial on making bath bombs which lead us both on a chase to find bath bomb moulds.


She also has a fabulous shop called Sam & I which sells children's pyjamas.  I have just order a beautiful set for my daughter for Christmas.

and finally a thank you to Kristen at The Painted Hive.

I love her blog so much that I went back and read every post right back to the first one, then sent her a ridiculously long email filled with questions and comments and she ever so gracefully responded to everything I wrote.  She is a busy lady with a newborn so I was blown away that she took the time and effort to email me.

So thank you to you lovely ladies.
