White papery goodness

I feel we underestimate the power of paper these days what with projectors projecting snow falling inside our homes or the gigantic mechanical santa+sleigh that adorn the odd roof. Not that I don’t adore these ridiculous decorations but remember good old paper won’t you!

Ikea and thumbprints

I’m pretty sure heaven looks like Ikea. Laura and me spend probably too much time there. God bless them and their meatballs. Sure, we all know they’re numero uno for household bits and bobs but providing people with pretty wedding decorations? Paul and Cassie funked up their wedding ceremony with just the prettiest little light. And it was only $30!
