2013: Review

January: The start of the year and my wee home was featured in IKEA Live Magazine
February: This was quite on the blogging front but it was our first Valentines as a married couple which was exciting.
March: I had a nice break from work for Easter and was happy that the days were now much longer and I could get out and about on the farm and pick some lovely wild flowers.
April: I spent quite a while in April deciding on fabrics for my guest bedroom but made a good choice in the end.
May: The weather was nice in May and we spent a lovely day in the Phoenix Park in Dublin which was enjoyable.
June: More trips, I visited Derry City for the first time with my parents, it really is lovely place with great architecture.

July: How could we forget the wonderful weather we had, we went for a weekend to Avoca, visited Glendalough and Powerscourt House and Gardens in County Wicklow and really enjoyed the beautiful weather.
August: Afternoon tea in Castle Leslie  was the highlight of August. This was a gift from my sister in law. Some more interiors were tackled in the house- we eventually did some work on our guest bedroom and just had to wait for the blinds to be finished.
September: More time spent on interiors and getting use to the shorter days drawing in.
October: Autumn time was setting in and I took some lovely walks in the countryside which inspired me to post some lovely autumnal interior posts.
November: The nights were really drawing in and there wasn't as much work on the farm in the evenings so I read a lot and posted some wishlist posts.

December: It was beginning to look a lot like Christmas in our home. I had friends visit and enjoyed my time off from work with family.
 So here's to 2013 and I'm off to get ready for visitors coming for the New Year Celebrations later tonight!

Christmas Greetings from All things nice..

Wishing each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and good wishes for the festive season.


Rockin' around the Christmas Tree...

Hope you all had a nice weekend. I had a busy one cleaning and dusting before putting up my Christmas decorations. Here are a few images *sorry they are blurry) of my trees (I have one real one in our sunroom and the other one is an artificial one in our sitting room. My husband cut the real one on Saturday, it was difficult as the weather was so bad. He had a great choice, it is around 9-10 foot tall and fits nicely in my sunroom.

Getting into the spirit of Christmas...

Hope everyone is getting into the Christmas spirit of things. I can't believe it is December already and it is just a few weeks now until Christmas. I haven't put up the Christmas tree yet but below are a few images from around my home last Christmas. Last year my husband went off to the forest to get a nice Christmas tree and I  gave instructions that I wanted a big tree for our first Christmas in our new home, so when I got home from work I had an eight foot tree in the room! We had to buy extra lights. I loved it, not sure if we will have such a large one this year though.
