green & red

Feeling inspired to share some pics of our cardboard tree and some revamped ornaments. The little present boxes were made by me (cardboard, brown paper and ribbons). We have also some classic baubles which looked chipped until I wrapped them in pieces of red cellophane (I recommend you this tip to refresh the look of old baubles). And there are also some small mats for drinks and assorted (red) trinkets. Not a masterpiece of design or decoration, but it has not to be perfect to make us smile and have fun!

En un rapto de inspiración, he sacado unas fotos de nuestro árbol de cartón y los adornos recién restaurados. Las cajitas de regalo las hice yo, con cartón, papel de envolver y cinta. También tenemos las clásicas bolas, que tenían un aspecto un poco desportillado hasta que las envolví en pedazos de celofán rojo (os recomiendo este truco para darle un aire nuevo a los adornos viejos). Y también hay unos posavasos rojos y otros adornos variados. No es que sea una obra maestra de la decoración ni el diseño, pero es que tampoco tiene que ser perfecto para que nos divierta.

And this is what I wore on my last day at work before holidays. Red and green, once more!
Have a fabulous time and enjoy these days whatever you do!

Y esto es lo que me puse el último día de trabajo antes de las vacaciones. Rojo y verde, otra vez!
Espero que tengáis unos días estupendos y, sea lo que sea lo que hagáis, lo disfrutéis mucho!
