Christmas this year seems to involve a lot of goats...common in Scandinavia (Sweden is my native country) but a bit of a novelty in the UK. This year I have seen them everywhere, from London's Regent Street to Fosseway Nurseries (as above) in Moreton-In-Marsh, The Cotswold's, UK.

A lot of birch around this Christmas as well. From these silhouette trees to decorations of all sort.. (Fosseway Nurseries)

Even some Elghs had found there way into the Cotswold's. A very common "logo" for Sweden! Fosseway Nurseries again!

I just love these baubles with the reindeer. Had to buy one! And not too expensive £3. Fosseway Nurseries.

Such a lovely winter hedgehog! With glitter on the spiky back. Fosseway Nurseries.

And lovely boots in the tree, warming! Fosseway Nurseries.

Not that it is normally any snow in the Cotswold's during Christmas, but one can hope to be able to use this lovely sledge...
HM:s Christmas windows in London, and the rest of Europe, was covered in Birches and funny golden symbols. Like the models found themselves dreaming in a forest wonderland. The Swedish broadcaster and journalist Göran Everdahl found it very depressing and his analysis was a bit too far fetched in my opinion. Models in a northern forest at Yule time! As simple as that!

Fantastically crazy, funny and kitschy Christmas decorations @ Designers Guild this year. From sweet and pink poodles to frogs and Russian dolls! Pricey but lovely!

A teapot for the tea lover...

...a pug for the dog lover...

A frog for you prince...

A sweet dear for your little daughter, niece etc...

Your own little church...

...or some Russian dolls for home longing friends from abroad..

I went to London again and found that Topshop etc were full of pale pinks! I love it. Just look at this fake fur jacket and the shoes are to die for!

This fantastic sequin skirt nearly became again.

Or why not a spotted fake fur

...or just a lacy top...#topshop again...

Or a more sporty look with a glitter top.

Even pink on the walls in Topshop with some monochrome waves...

HM:s version of pink and fake fur @ Oxford Circus.

Mix the pink with some burgundy!

Jigsaws Christmas was pink!

Reindeer's and gold for Christmas. The big department store (Åhléns) has the most diverse decorations for Christmas. From Reindeer's in gold to red traditional Father Christmases. Just look at these lovely pictures for inspiration. They were shot at their Christmas Preview for the press in August.

Folklore embroidered cushions with slick grey and stripes. Elegant och traditional at the same time!

More traditional patterns for Christmas. The advent candle holder are a very typical Swedish tradition. We lit one candle for every Sunday in Advent. White moss for decoration!

Why not some ski lodge inspired new bedding for Christmas. Note the head board in birch bark and the grass inspired blanket...

Sweet little Father Christmas carrying the merry message...GOD JUL is MERRY CHRISTMAS in Swedish!

The forest inspires...from tree shaped candles to mugs decorated with foxes and an a-corn sugar bowl...and an owl on the cushion. All

Sheep skin, green moss and red towels. Get ready for the Christmas Season.

Get ready for the Christmas baking with utensils etc in red. Any good cook shop will carry this kind of items right now...

Finally, I just love these labels and wrapping paper from Try something similar @ (UK).

Orange is a zingy and fresh colour for you who do not mind having eyes on you. Vibrant and energetic tones for the winter. This lovely pleated skirt are from Note the boots with visible socks!

Sweet party dress with a girly collar. Perfect for all these Christmas events coming up in December. This one in tangy coral from

And finally, why not an Elgh in the Christmas Tree this year, has some fun and funky Christmas decorations for you! Mooooooh...

White fashion with some monochrome elements are very big this Christmas. And big letters i.e graphic decorations. This is on Oxford Street London.

White and black and gold! and their window display at Oxford Street now! Looks very elegant for being the lowest price fashion chain right now!

White boxes and snowy trees, House of Fraser!

Sequins and glitter for the kids this Christmas, 

Dreams in pearls, feathers etc...Harrods!

White and silver and cut out,!

I just loved the colour scheme that Debenhams had in their windows for Christmas this year. From orange to chocking pink to reds...just like the fashion just now (part of it!). Note the Carmen Miranda use of Christmas decorations on the mannequins head!

I also loved the Conrans Shops Christmas Display. Why not have some Snowmen for dinner this Christmas.

Marks & Spencer's had plexi trees inside their store and of course - a red coat for Christmas.

A really nice idea for a window display this Christmas. I found this skirt of parcels in the window @ Body Shop, Oxford Street London!

Have a Christmas in gold this year. After having had a look around London last week I saw a lot of gold in the window displays on Oxford Street etc. Above, had a fairy tale theme going with the Sleeping Beauty in gold!

Zara Home is, contrary to Zara Fashion, very traditional. This year in white and gold. Fresh, crisp and cosy at the same time.

Why not take a trip in a golden cab? This one you can find in the window display @ Selfridges. Their Wonder Room is dedicated to Paddington Bear up to Christmas. More tomorrow!

One of the prices for best windows goes this year to Primark! They have managed to create a very elegant and luxurious feel. A great achievement since they have some of the lowest prices on the High Street. Well done!
