Deck The Halls And The Bathroom And The Kitchen!

Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year, I adore that you can breakfast on Quality Street ( is that just me?), glitter nail polish can be worn everyday and your house can be as festively mad as you want.

It is also a fantastic time for the crafty amongst us, magazines and books start whipping us into a frenzy from September onwards, and I have stitched, knitted, beaded and crocheted more than my fair share.

In years gone by I have ruthlessly colour schemed, set themes for each room and quilted table mats accordingly. I have reached a point now where for me it’s more about the history that comes with each piece , or that it’s so cute or kitsch that I have to have it.

So here is a little taste of what Christmas looks like at WDS HQ and remember the only purpose of decorations should be to make you smile!


An idea nicked from Pinterest!



Hello Kitties in the bathroom!


Remember paper concertina decorations? These are ENORMOUS ones from Rockett St.George.

And here’s  a roundup of stuff either made by me or my super talented mum!

Finally, here is Darcey, the reason my blog is called While Darcey Sleeps is because I only really get creative while she is napping! I think she’s gorgeous I hope you do too,
