Christmas wishes

Christmas wishes

Another Monday and the end of the year is drawing closer. Amazing how time flies. I had another busy weekend and the highlight was a fabulous lunch with friends at Fairview for my sister’s birthday. I’ll share some pics tomorrow. How did you spend your weekend? Are you getting into the Christmas spirit yet?

As Christmas really is just around the corner, I thought I’d share a few Christmas wishes from some of my favourite blogger friends up until then. I’ve asked them what their ultimate luxurious Christmas dream gift would be and then also for a small stocking filler wish. We’ll start off with the creative Justina of Compai. Justina gave us three picks…
Christmas wishes Justina
Stocking pick… a gorgeous origami candle holder
Luxurious but more realistic pick… colourful vintage quilt

Absolute fantasy pick… an incredible Missoni sofa!

Thanks Justina! I’ll take all three of those, please! And lastly I thought I’d share some beautiful gift wrapping ideas that Justina shared recently, so clever!

    Hi Lana. I am totally getting that Christmas feeling now! Can't wait to eat Christmas cake (I've already eaten far too many mince pies) and turkey and all the other delicious things we reserve for this time of the year only.
    Have a gorgeous week xx

    Hi girls. Fun list – the origami candle holder is so cute. Would look lovely in a little flock on a dining table!

    The gift wrapping ideas are great. Thanks for sharing. Haven't started wrapping yet!
