We all know that I’m addicted to white. Yes, it’s true. When it comes to Christmas, however, I can’t resist adding green and red to the mix. I know, I know, it’s shocking. IÂ love having aÂ real live green tree (mine is from Ikea, and it smells so good!), and my colourful decorations remind me of the places I’ve travelled. That being said, when I saw this white tree at Rona last weekend, I wondered if IÂ should give aÂ white artificial tree a try one year.
I probably would end up just putting lights on it and calling it a day. Maybe I’llÂ wait for it to go on super sale, and thenÂ try it out next year.
IÂ thought theseÂ Christmas decorations were also pretty cute:
I wishÂ there was an Ikea in Kitchener-Waterloo.Â I miss spending chunks of my days there and browsing theÂ collections with a coffee in hand. I haven’t yet made my way there to see this year’sÂ holiday collection in person (or to stock up on Glogg), butÂ I’m looking forward to doing so in a couple of weeks (if there’s anything still in stock, that is!). For now, I’ve rounded up some of the items that have caught my attention.
See more at Ikea.
