Christmas is less than a month away. Are you in the decorating spirit for the Holidays already? My favourite decoration during this season is the Christmas wreath. I like to have one on my front door as well as above the fireplace. This year, I plan to make a Christmas wreath with my niece who has just graduated from the medical assistance program. She is back home now after graduation so I thought it would be a good idea to get her involved in this craft. I was at Country Living just now and spotted awesome their wreath decorating ideas using ordinary materials.

A wreath made from a few colour-coordinated scarves. Just wrap the scarves around a foam base and tie, allowing the ends to hang long.
I really like this photograph wreath. Just hot glue a few black and white photos of the family to a wire wreath form.

In my previous post, I mentioned that birdcages are popularly used as home decor items these days. They are a very sweet piece of home decor for those who want to add a whimsical touch to their home. Whether they are hanging from the ceiling, placed on the table or on the floor, birdcages will add a very chic vibe in your home. Some even use birdcages to display cupcakes or cakes in the kitchen. There are many types of birdcages available, from wooden to metal. I bought a birdcage made from bamboo and spray-painted it white for decoration in my living room. This is because a friend of mine who is into fengshui told me that a white birdcages at home enhances prosperity. I hope this is true and we’ll see how it goes.
Birdcages have become a very popular decorative accessory for homes. They come in my different shapes and sizes. Birdcages can be bought from flea markets, home stores, garage sale and more. Many people love to put plants, candles, flowers, dolls, books or fake birds in the birdcages. Oh I have seen birdcages being used at weddings, bridal showers or engagement parties too. Do you have any decorative birdcages in your home? Wait for my next post on what decorating with birdcages means.

Well, if you have been following my blog, you would know that I love things that are made from recycled every day stuff. I love how milk crates and boxes are turned into coffee tables, storage crates being used as shelves and side table. Yes, I love anything that is made from wood. So when I saw this fabulous Surface Seat made from recycled wooden pallet, I was over the moon. Don’t you find like this simple but cleverly designed chair?
I can spend hours sitting on this chair to watch tv, visit www.whatareblackheads.com or just chilling.

I saw this lovely ladder shelves at Wisteria while blog-hopping just now. It is a replica of a French antique and has a lot of characters. This type of shelving is very unique and attractive. Well, it is not very suitable to keep your riding breeches on it but it can be used as a small bookcase or a side table. It also offers a nice place to put stuff such as plants or small objects like photo frames, floral arrangements and more. Also available in red. A nice decorative accent for your home.
