In the spirit of Christmas, I've decided to start a five-part series, called , "The season of...."
I love pine cones and they have always been an integral part of Christmas for me. We used to spray paint them white or gold and make wreaths with pine branches, to decorate the dining room table. So I'm thinking of making a miniature one for my desk.
Fresh flowers are as good as a fresh coat of paint, when comes to brightening a room. Zimbabwe's Christmas flower is the poinsettia, which has vivid scarlet or pale custard petals and yellow stigmas. They are poisonous, so if you have young children or relatives its best to stick to St Joseph lilies.
I've already started buying a few little gold trinkets to hang around my room from, Sassafras, which is a lovely boutique in Sam Levy's Village.
Last year, I spent Christmas in London. So I'm looking forward to spending it with my boyfriend by the lake, this year. What are your plans for Christmas?
Thank you, for reading.
