Fra huset i svingen said...

Jeg er gjerne med :D
Julen er rød for meg, så endel røde detaljer som "god jul" bokstaver, bånd, hjerter o.l. Også endel naturpynt som lite furutre i sinkbøtte, lerkegreiner og kongler :D

Klem Karianne

I have minimalistic christmas decoration, since I will not be home at christmas. I am planning to do this: http://pinterest.com/pin/149252175120457367/

Great giveaway! thanks!

Guro said...

Denne sjansen kan jeg jo ikke la gå fra meg!
Her hjemme har jeg alltid AMBISJONER om å ha et gjennomført juletema, men vi ender alltid opp med ei salig blanding. Gammel og ny julepynt, pynten som barna har laget er selvsagt aller viktigst. Barnslig nostalgisk beskriver det kanskje best hvis jeg legger godviljen til Ü Men jeg inkluderer gjerne farger som jeg liker godt, og som kanskje ikke er typiske julefarger (i år f.eks. blir det små detaljer i rosa og gult).
Jeg skulle gjerne møtt opp personlig, men det blir alt for langt borte. Krysser fingrene! Og god adventstid til deg.

Jeg vil gjerne være med og vinne fine ting, T A K K !
Hjemme pynter vi ikke til jul før Lille Julaften, nå går det mest i adventfarge lilla og masse stearinlys. Men når Lille Julaften kommer, skal alt det fine rødt og rosa (!) frem! Og litt turkis. Men bare hvis den har oppført seg pent. Mest går det i hjemmelaget pynt, i felt, i pepperkaker, i papir. Takk igjen!

Camsen said...

Vi pynter med juletræ som fylder det meste af stuen, med al muligt slags pynt, som vi har samlet gennem årene. Ellers har vi en lill enisseby, Holmegaards glasornamenter, nisser all over.. ;) Send gerne denne vej!

HannasHörna said...

Hej Hej!

Vilken härlig utlottning. I år blandar vi vitt med färger som rosa, mintgrön och turkos.

Kram

Frau Haselmayer said...

I put some silver/red/pink vintage Christmas ornaments under a glass dome...and maybe we put up a small tree (with plastic ornaments only because if Mini, our little cat)!

Ania said...

This year's Christmas I decided to wear in gold, silver, brown....and green of course. Each week more candles, candle holders, stars, lights appear at our home. Christmas tree is waiting patiently on balcony yet... :)

Dorthe said...

Jeg vil gerne være med! Jeg pynter med masser af stearinlys, hjemmelavet julepynt af papir, guirlander, naturpynt fra skoven og masser af klementiner:-)

Marit said...

Å så spennende. Rekker å svare et kort svar for lille jenta våkner igjen :) Her går det i rødt og hvitt og mange nisser i ulike fasonger.

HOME by linn said...

rundt meg ser eg kvite lys, granbar, greiner, papirstjerner, ei julekrybbe og småkaker på norgesglas. og ein raud dala(?)hest :)

ønsker deg gode førjulsdagar

trui V said...

This year I am crocheting some ornaments like toadstools and a reindeer head for the wall.

sigfridpettersen63 said...

I år pyntes det med rødt og rosa i ulike fargetoner. Kuttet ut juletreet til fordel for et lite bjørketre som jeg har hengt opp hotisontalt i stuevinduet. Rosa, gull, sølv og lilla kuler i forskjellige kuler henger ned og skaper et vakkert lysspill av alle de levende lysene som står på bordet under. Veldig fornøyd. Levende lys, svibler med mose og lerkekvister og fin musikk - det er jul!

These year I used classical colors red and white for Christmas decoration at my home and we did not want to use a big christmas tree, so we have small branches with a few christmas decoration items. You can see all our home decorations on my blog, I will share all of them day by day.

Anniken Zahl said...

Så hærlig!! Jeg pynter i hvitt, grått, sort, noe guld og grønt. På store kvister jeg har sprayet hvite, henger favorittpynten f.o.m 1. des. Her har jeg bl.a favorittene i guldfarge: engelen: It wasn´t me stjerne: Kiss and make up! Key to my hart! Pick me! Alle fra Superspace.Dk Enkelt og rent og masse julemusikk, og lange luncher med gode venninner!
Finfin adventstid til deg og lykke til på torsdag! Skulle gjerne kommer! ***

amy mcisaac said...

I enjoy the subtle decor of Christmas. White twinkle lights behind sheer curtains, touches of silver and gold here and there, the smells of cinnamon, cloves and oranges. Fresh cut cedar sprigs in mason jars tied up with eggplant colored bows. Simple but pretty yet warm and inviting.
What a great giveaway, your picks are beautiful.
Amy

ffhfarm said...

this is a lovely and generous giveaway! we have white lights on the tree and lots of home-made ornaments made by our six year old daughter, we have old family ornaments too. we have paper snow-flakes made from magazines in the window and orange and cranberry garlands. its all home-made and down-to-earth but to us it looks perfect :)

Linda said...

I've gathered som ornaments through the years. For my tree I love keeping it mainly in silver and white. But sometimes I find I have to go all the way out with plenty color in addition!

Laura said...

Almost all the ornaments of our tree are made by my 7-year old daughter with fimo, scraps of paper and fabric. She is a natural born crafter.

jackie said...

I decorate with bits of nature, all the homemade ornaments my children have made over the years, lots of twinkle lights and candle glow in an advent wreath.

Frugal foodie said...

I start by trying to co ordinate and look elegant but I end up eclectic and with I tree I say the children decorated (a bit lopsided) so it matches my personality in the end ;D

the lugbills said...

We have two kids in a small apartment, so our Christmas decorations are small, too. :) A little skinny tree, stockings, a snowflake garland, and a wreath on the door. This gift package would be such a TREAT.

mAs said...

I´d love to participate :)
I decorate for christmas with all the things that I have accumulated over the years...kind of a mix-match...and also with some of the things I just can´t resist to buy :) But my favorite item is a vintage christmas topping that belonged to my parents :)

All the best
Margrét

theembellishednest said...

My Christmas decorating style is definitely nature inspired with touches of handmade.

Love the colors in these photos!

Jenni C's said...

wow, what a generous and lovely giveaway...i could not choose which style to decorate...so i have used different styles and colors in each room....;)and added lots of flowers, as we have a summer Christmas...

Alison said...

I decorate very simply with natural and homemade decorations, but always with a traditional green, red and white theme: moss, fir branches, red ribbon and white linen.

McMGrad89 said...

Normally we have a lit Christmas tree with every ornament I ever bought over the past 18 years. Then the mantle gets draped in greenery and lights and some more little ornaments that would get lost in the tree. This year, we are in a smaller place so adjustments have to be made. Here's to a happy Christmas to everyone.

Silke said...

Me win win win :)

various kinds said...

This year we have a colourful christmas, with 3 little boys in the house.
Before I had kids, I loved a white christmas.

Love your work.

Vicki Dvorak said...

Hi Beautiful Lady! So proud of you and excited about all of the wonderful things happening in your life, Jeanette. Big HUGS! xo

Marolle said...

ihh hvor fint! glæder mig til at se hvad du har lavet. Viser du det på bloggen ?
Her hjemme består julen i år af lilla, hvid, lidt rød og sølv :)

Cecilie said...

Jeg vil være med!
Jeg dekorerer med hvite stearinlys, et brett med gamle nisser og stæsj som jeg har laget på barneskolen, appelsiner med nellik, en kransekake og små kjærlighetsbrev til Gilles som jeg gjemmer på steder jeg vet at han finner dem.

God jul.

Ragnhild said...

I år dekorer eg med kvitt, kongler og greiner frå skogen, en dæsj Sufjan Stevens og skjønne fuglar. Og sjølvsagt masse levande lys!

Mar said...

I like decorating with white homemade details that I have crocheted: snowflakes, stars, butterflies...hanging on the Christmas tree, garlands on the walls and the doors. I love simply decoration.
What a wonderful giveaway!!!
Thank you very much.
Mar

Høytrykk said...

Jeg pynter ganske enkelt til jul. Hvitt, grått og rødt. Pluss et digert juletreet som kommer på plass lillejulaften.
Fin premie! Og for et flott bilde av deg. Så vakker du er!

Jan | Poppytalk said...

i hope to print out some family photo's and decorate the tree with it this year - gift tag style!

: )

ReVinyl said...

Jeg dekorerer my med engler, hvitt og ungenes kreasjoner. I fjor fikk det komme en nisse inn i betong fra plantasjen. Han fungerer som hagenisse på sommeren og julenisse på vinteren. Genialt!

I utgangspunktet liker jeg få ting som skiller seg ut og tar plass i seg selv, men det har endret seg litt da etter at ungene har begynt å lage ting. Det er jo ekstra hyggelig å dekorere her hjemme med det og vise de at vi setter pris på det :)

Traveling Mama said...

How fun! I love to decorate with homemade ornaments and slight variations in color each year!

Ola said...

For me Christmas is red and white. I hang some handmade hearts on the shelf. I also have brunch in green bottle on which I hang white decorations. To make more intimate ambience I put some little lights and candles. I love Christmas. Now I am only waiting for snow.

Mathilde heart Manech said...

This year, we've adorned each room with branches, thistles and holly. Quite simple but looks seasonal :-) it's the twinkly lights that make them special.

Amazing giveaway! Thank you!

Casa&co. said...

Colourful with a tree of masking tape and a garland of small pompons.

Of course there is more: lots of candles and a real tree.

Wish you a colourful christmas.

Marieke

Neza said...

Hello! First I clean as much as I can, than I prepare lots of candles so I can light them whenever It feels dark and gloomy. I bring fir branches, hang some on the wall with little glass baubles and stars...

Alison Laxdal said...

This year my decorating is based on nature. Wheat sheaves, cedar boughs and pine cones. All sparkled up with gold and silver. I will take much inspiration from your blog.

Carla said...

hi,
I'm using only red decorations; I think it makes the green of the tree look so lovely and christmassy.
On the table I put some long branches in a glass jug decorated with only small red shiny hearts. It's my favourite and then candles, candles, candles!
Have fun at H&M and please pick me for the giveaway :-)
hug,
Carla

Heidi said...

Jeg dekorerer hovedsaklig med rødt. På juletreet er det bare røde kuler, og i år har jeg tenkt å henge opp små vaser med røde roser også. :)

mannon said...

I guess you could say I have a rustic theme going this year: pine cones, rusted white metal angels, candles, garlands, a real tree(every year) etc., you get the picture.

Thanks for a great giveaway!

KROnPRINSESSENE said...

For en herlig konkurranse!

Her pyntes det med:
natur
svart, hvitt og grått
en dæsj lilla
lyslenker
hjemmelagete klipp og lim lenker
en stor og ekte edelgran
og masse stearinlys!
Da blir det julestemning, slik jeg ønsker den skal være ;)
Klem May Helen

Inger Johanne said...

Å ja takk:-) Eg pyntar med litt nytt og litt gammalt;-) Alltid litt dyr(rådyr), litt natur, litt fargar som varierer frå år til år. Iår blir det litt pastell...

Klem

Rosalie Malham said...

I live vintage...and this year I managed to gather a lot of vintage decorations from thrift stores...so it's a very merry vintage Christmas here in my little house!

leah said...

i decorate simply. nature inspired theme, mostly white and neutrals with pops of hot pink and silver {and green in the form of tree and flowers}. beautiful giveaway x

Miss Fanchon said...

The theme we picked for this year is natural + white + aqua blue. Anything in these hues can qualify, from branches and pine cones to kids toys, kitchen utensils, jewellery. It was quite a lot of fun to decorate this way, believe me.

Annie Pickle said...

we decorate using nature as our inspiration - lots of greenery and candles - we also make paper snowflakes for every window in the house! thank you so much for the giveaway! happy holidays!

Kelli said...

This is by far my favorite time of year - I live in a pretty rural area and we have great church christmas sales with everything from handmade to vintage decoratons - so I love to gather different things every year from these sales usually keeping with a very "vintage handmade granny feel"- So much fun:) What a beautiful giveaway! Thanks so much for the chance! :)

Zosia said...

This year I am doing just a few decorations, like an advent calendar http://polonicahomeagain.blogspot.com/2011/12/advent-calendar-kalendarz-adwentowy.html
an Amarylis http://polonicahomeagain.blogspot.com/2011/11/amaryllis-amarylis.html
We will have a Christmas tree too.

Love the beauty and delicate touches in decorating on your blog.

melinda said...

For me one of the most beautiful Christmas images that nature give us is a snow covered tree.
So when decorating my home for Christmas I use - pure, simple, white.

Anonymous said...

We decorate with a couple nativity scenes, a hand cut tree, many of the children's handmade decorations and LOTS of lights :)

Takk for det!

Captain Momma

Mme Ouvrage said...

Ah, love the wonderful greys you've picked. We decorate colourful and with love. Just as the children like it most.

Iitunen said...

Our christmas is at my parents house, but some paper garlands, candles, star with a light & Lights outsidet at home! Some flowers, surely, have to go and get them!
& Little pink balls that says "Babys first Christmas" One from last year, and I´ll have to find new one that says 2011 my younger one as well <3 Overly cute and pink and shiny :D

Iitunen from Finland

Irene said...

What a great giveaway! I love christmas and I always keep it the simple way. A tree, of course, with much white, a little red & black... and many cookie plates and mulled wine. Serving good food can be a perfect way to decorate the home, too :)

third room studio said...

This year I am focussed on handmade decorations, with lots of red and white. Toy soldiers, toadstools and lots of natural wood texture. And lots of lights!

Karoline Sigoldson said...

Här pyntar vi med rött, rosa, ljus turkos och ljus grön... Jag och barnen tillverkar girlanger i långa banor och dukar upp små stilleben här och var med små tomtar, paket och änglar mm. Jag tycker det är fint att hänga olika sorters julgranskulor i fönstret eller i ett hörn lite varstans i huset. Granen pyntar vi med mycket silver och glitter! Och många söta paket under granen...

:-)

GOSIA said...

I bring the outside inside;) twigs, pebbles, pine cones - anything will do. Then I add some white here and there and presto!

Cathrin said...

O jol med så mykje glede! Til jul pyntar eg heimen med julestjerne med lys i glaset, levande lys rundt om i alle rom, klementiner i skåler, masse kjærleik, einekransar på dørar som gir god lukt i huset, små fuglar, hjerter og pyntesopp på greiner i ei krukke, saueskinn på stolar og benk, juletre med raude epler og arva juleynt, granbar på trappetrinna utafor huset og tente lys i lyktene, gåvene i ei korg ved juletreet, julemusikk på anlegget, god matlukt på kjøkenet og familien min sjølvsagt - hovedingrediensen for jul.

Audrey PM said...

I will buy chistmas tree branches and make little garlands to hang everywhere so we'll be smelling the sweet scent of christmas tree in every room.

Rosa said...

Jeg er også med!
Her går det i natur, hvitt og sølv:-)

Klem, Rosa

Love Peace Pionies said...

Så kjekt!
Den fine julestemningen for meg er julekrybbe, lyslenker, pynt fra natur-kongler++, sølv/grå/hvit pynt, og når det nærmer seg julaften må jeg ha inn litt rødt. Julen er jo likson rød... Og vi har juletrær i flertall....:)
klem kristina

Greta said...

I have done a himmeli. Himmeli's from Finland and it's usually made of stalk.

http://www.kaspaikka.fi/video/himmeli/

There is a video on that site, where you can see how to do one yourself. I'm sorry that it's in Finnish. You can make it from plastic drinking straws also, then you can decide the color and it's lasts longer.

Leah Esser said...

We'll be leaving the tree at home for a bit while on holiday in Germany, so this year we've opted for a branchy sapling draped in white lights, vintage glass ornaments and feathery child creations. We've tucked boxwood in nooks and in wreaths and on mantle places and hope for snow and a festive homecoming!

Cindy said...

you look so chic and i would love to win. thanks to all for the lovely giveaway!

jo said...

this year (the first in our new house) i have added lots of fresh trees, lights and homemade decorations to our house. my children love it and so do i. thanks for the chance to win. xox jo

Glede said...

Hei! Jeg vil gjerne være med! Vi feirer første jul i nytt hus, så her prøver vi oss litt frem. Endelig har vi hvite flater stort sett overalt, så vi står rimelig fritt i forhold til valg av farger til pynten. På loftstua har vi rødt, sølv og hvitt. Her har noen få nisser fått plass også, det er kjekt for barna. I førsteetasjen er det mer hvitt, sølv og sink som gjelder - med innslag av grønt og lilla. Lerkegreiner, kongler, nøtter og granbar hjelper på stemningen, og jeg ser at jeg har en stor forkjærlighet for stjerner i ulike materialer - kjøpt og hjemmelaget. Lukten av nybakt brød, pepperkaker eller annen julemat utgjør prikken over i`en. :) Det var mitt julehus.

elinAnita (eddaskreativiteter ) said...

Det blir mye blomster og lys.Ellers så har jeg litt å velge mellom..så jeg vet ikke før jeg starter den ordentlige pyntingen:)
Når på torsdag er det?

Tuija said...

This Christmas I try to make a comfortable balance between rustic and glittering decorations according to my 12-year-daughter's wishes. Not the easiest task. :)

Inger-Lise said...

Vi pynter ganske tradisjonelt til jul i rødt og hvitt, mange hjerter og noen stjerner. Og etter at vi fikk barn blir det stadig flere nisser! :)
Takk for fineste bloggen og hurra for spennende giveaway. Ha en fortsatt fin førjulstid.

Iris said...

I decorate in white in gold, with a touch of glitter, a dash of sparkle and whimsical elements. Deers step into the decor, an icebear peeks around the corner and there is light, a lot of warmth and love.
x Iris

Monica S said...

Hjemme hos oss tar vi i år bare frem det som betyr aller mest. Jeg har vært syk i flere måneder og da begrenser det seg hva man får til. Den rette stemningen hos oss: hvite, deilig duftende svibler i gamle syltetøyglass, sølvstjerne, flittig bruk av hyggelige lyslykter, barnas selvlagde engler i lysekronen, det strikka nisseparet som bestemor vant til meg på lotteri i min barndom, juletre pyntet i hvitt og sølv og selvfølgelig Josef, Maria og Jesusbarnet. God jul!

dotpebbles said...

Hi there - I've made some huge white tissue paper balls which are handing amongst simple white lights in my kitchen, I have a pink, white, red and duck egg blue theme (cups, jugs, pink and white marshmallow in a jar with white stripped back wood) running along side that and of course a few 50's vintage baubles in and around. I was lucky to find some vintage Christmas lights too this year - my best yet.

Therese ❦ Fjellrosa said...

Fantastisk konkurranse, glad jeg fant den i siste liten :)
I vårt hus er julen veldig utradisjonell uten både rød pynt og nisser. Her pynter vi med dekor i glass, gjerne litt tre for en rustikk følelse, hvitt og sølv med noen elementer av gull :)

Hege Evensen said...

KJEMPE FINT :D

Bristol Parenting Cafe said...

I have made gold paper bunting to hang across my ceilings with fairy lights and decorations made by my young children. So there is a lot of glitter and paper decorations. We also have a home-made advent calender for our mantelpiece. I haven't done the tree yet!

decorating with lots of white lights and evergreen garland. thank you janita

Jessie Robbins said...

We start with white Christmas lights on the porch and cut boughs for the mantles and railings inside; the tree has lots of handmade ornaments from when we were kids. My favorite is an antique felt advent calendar with little stuffed pieces that my mother used when she was little. Thank you!

Eeva & Nils said...

Eventhough we won't be home for christmas this year I started decorating in the begining of december so we can really get into the christmas spirit. Previouse years I havn't decorated and it feels that christmas is way too short. We have made gingerbread cookies and a house with the kids and decorated branches for a x-mas tree. Listneing to christmas songs and burning candles is the best christmas spirit bringer! :)

Merry Christmas, I love your blog.

Kit Lang said...

I choose a theme every year that gets done from tree to mantel to tabletops: the themes are thing plus a colour scheme: last year was angels and blue and silver, this year it`s birds and white and gold.

I love Christmas!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Belichek said...

For a start I had made of felt garland in the window, then adorned with white branches that hang over the dining table with white hearts, Christmas trees and stars, and then poveshala at the front door, and finally we recently put the tree under which the gifts are already on)) the most important decoration for Christmas - it's my pregnancy) we day by day waiting for the birth of our daughter - Mia. I love your blog and wish you and your family in the new year of happiness and health)

Marina said...

We use silver ornaments (stars, bells, snowflakes) and lights. We also made a smaller "tree" with branches and birds. Since in Argentina is summertime, we spend Christmas outside in the swimming pool!
Merry Christmas! Thanks, I´ll keep my fingers crossed.

Nonaddetta said...

We are restoring our new-old house, but even though this is a Christmas with lots of things packed in boxes we took out our small nativity coming from Mexico: inside a twisted wood log, carefully adapted by grandpas raising money for a charity, two sweet Mum&Dad look at the sweetest baby, who just shows his bottom while sleeping and smiling...

inkala images said...

what a truly lovely gift...

my little home is decorated with bows, twinkling lights and sweet little 'paperboatpress' ornaments...brown paper packages tied with string...all wrapped together with love and laughter.

i'll be by the sea on christmas day, basking in the summer sunshine.

wishing you the happiest of days

welliewalks said...

for christmas we have decorated simply with paper and crafts we can make ourselves- my two daughters and I. we have a "tree" made from wood and tied together teepee style at the top- draped with lights and tinsel and paper feathers. we cut out the word "joyeux" and covered it with dusty pink glitter. we have an advent calendar that we all embroidered pockets for. i like it simple and homemade.

Kitty de Winter said...

This year I had a white christmas in house. Only white decoration with a touch of green natural branches. To me it felt festive, light, clean and crisp. A perfect way to end last year and start 2012.

Best whishes for 2012

Regards,

Kitty
