Midnight Mass anyone?

It escapes me exactly how I came across these images of a cathedral in Salt Lake City (USA) at Christmas-time, but I think they warrant a mention here. Of course, the church is decked out superbly (inside and out!) but I especially like the bright pink choristers outfits. Talk about progressive. Certainly looks a lot fancier than any other Christmas mass I've ever attended here in Australia...

Christmas Candle-holder

These images are courtesy of NYC ceramicist Jonathan Adler. He has just released a gorgeous new Squirrel candle-holder which I thought would make a welcome addition to any Christmas table! I really like how the top of the acorn comes off to reveal the spot for your candle. The piece also comes in black which looks equally as good, but is perhaps is not as 'Christmassy'.

DIY Christmas

I always make sure to get a copy of UK magazine 'Real Simple' at Christmas time. The magazine always has great 'do-able' decorating ideas for around the home. These are my favourite DIY Christmas projects from their website.

Santa Sack

This cute & wry Santa sack is from 'Selfridges & Co' in London. It's made from unbleached, fair-trade cotton & features a handy draw-string top.
