*Last Day for Christmas Orders Today*

If you are wanting anything from the Vintage Amethyst shop for Christmas please place your orders today.

 Orders being posted with the courier are taking up to a week to arrive, it is a very busy time of year, so I don't want to leave it any longer than this as I don't want people to be disappointed if things don't arrive before Christmas.
Lots of Christmas goodies have been reduced so pop on over to take a peek.

*A Rustic Paper Decorated Christmas Table*


Paper star hanging decorations

A woodland-inspired theme is magical and will last year after year. What's more, with a natural look you can dress your home with 'free' foliage from your own garden and use inexpensive materials for rustic charm.

Dress the mantel with a homemade garland, using pinecones, greenery, nuts and berries from outdoors. Buy inexpensive paper stars to hang from the ceiling, or even make your own from sheets of newspaper.

You can still make your dining-room table the centrepiece with your everyday white china and glassware, just add a rustic touch by dressing up each place setting with fir and berry napkin holders, then tie together with twine and mini brown paper packages for each of your guests.

*Budget Christmas decorating ideas*

How adorable is this festive looking room?
It is from House to Home which advises on decorating for Christmas on a budget.

Be a cash-clever decorator

With just a few key accessories in scarlet red, snow white and natural materials you can achieve a seasonal Scandi look without breaking the bank.
Gather pine cones on a winter walk and string them together to make a rustic garland to hang along your mantel. Look round flea markets and boot fairs for old type-setting blocks so you can spell out a festive greeting.
Buy red and white woolly jumpers or blankets from local second-hand shops and upycycle them into festive cushions or home-made Christmas stockings.

*Hello December*

It's December the 1st already!!!!
I just wanted to let you know about
Christmas Posting Times.
Today is the last day for
International Christmas Posting, so all orders from outside of the UK please place them today!
If you are in the UK please place all orders for Christmas arrival by Friday the 12th of December.
I know this seems a bit early but I use courier MyHermes for most parcels and they take 3-5 working days for delivery and as this time of year is super busy orders take a little longer to process, so it just gives your orders enough time to arrive before Christmas.

I will be closing the shop for the Christmas period on
 Friday the 19th of December and re-open again in January.
*Happy December Everyone*

*Bold with Pattern*

"The master bedroom has a very retro feel to it with the pink, tangerine, and lavender colour palette, the paisley linen, and the zigzag Missoni-esque pattern on the floor," says Mona Ross Berman, who designed this New Jersey beach house.
The floor is painted Salmon Berry and White Dove, both by Benjamin Moore.
In this Manhattan apartment’s kitchen, designers William Diamond and Anthony Baratta added a playful citrus pattern to bright blue floors. 
"Our clients — a couple in their forties with two little girls — wanted something zippy and up-to-date, but that still cast an admiring eye on the past," says Diamond.
The lacquered chair is from Room, the Saarinen table from Knoll. Microwave and wall oven by Viking.
The circular pattern of these black and white marble floor tiles by Ann Sacks give a graphic punch to this Washington town house by Hillary Thomas and Jeff Lincoln.
"The house makes you want to put on some Chet Baker and get all Mad Men with a pack of cigarettes and a shaker full of gin martinis," says Thomas.
Alla Akimova created drama in a luminous, all-white New York City bathroom by adding a chevron marble floor.
It's composed of Dark Emperador and Thassos marble and was custom cut by Manhattan Renovations.
Are you bold with pattern in your home?
