    Loved this video! We moved in September and I was surprised how little Christmas decor we had. It has been really fun to hunt down some bargains!

    Hi hermione. Good video. I did think though that your living room seemed a bit bare. I would have to put up some wall decorations. The more the better for me. ❤️

    Dear Hermione, I just saw a tutorial on how to paint your old Christmas ornaments and add glitter to them to make them fit into your color scheme. You can check on TheXvid and Pinterest. Your house is looking lovely. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!! 🎄🎀🦌⛄

    if you need your artificial tree to smell like pine you can always buy a "pine scented" air freshener, they usually have them for cars at least they do here in canada.

    Do they not make chimney caps with screens there that keep the pigeons out?

    Pigeons: You need to discourage them because pigeons stay wherever they hatch and have their own families and before you know it you're working on your fourth generation of pigeons and they're all over your roof. A physical barrier is best--it doesn't hurt the pigeons but it stops them getting comfortable. One of the best ones I've found is the old-fashioned "Slinky" toy--the wire loops wobble and make the footing uncertain and pigeons don't like it. You'll need to get someone up on the roof to nail the Slinkies around the edges of your roof and the chimney. It's a bore, but believe me it's worth it, otherwise your grandchildren will be dealing with the descendants of your pigeons!

    video summary:
    • be prepared (adhesive wall hooks, tape, scissors, ornament hooks, string, ribbon, bubble wrap)
    • have storage boxes & supplies - use one type of tub; i.e. food containers
    • deep clean your home
    • try to multitask (i.e. listen to a book while cleaning)
    • assess the space - take down any clashing decor
    • take out ALL of your christmas decor - try a theme
    • be patient; don’t buy more decor until you’re done with what you have

    There is a special anti-pigeons paint, maybe you could paint the top of the chimney with that and add some of those spiky things? Also, I loved the video!!

    Love love love this! But what do you do with your houseplants? I am all for taking 'normal' decorations away, but I feel like if I move my plants a lot they would hate me...

    Unsolicited advice! I had my chimneys capped as the fireplaces aren’t functioning and it keeps seeds, leaves and, uh, raccoons out of my hearth.
    Edit: bahaha! I see we all jumped into the comments to help you solve your pigeon issue. Good luck, Hermione!

      She said in a previous video that she had a chest infection so I think it’s probably just that she’s getting over being unwell which is making her voice sound different :)

    Hello! Beautiful decorating!
    My husband and I have been married for 36 years and we have Christmas decorations from our very first Christmas together onward and we don’t use everything we’ve accumulated over the years but it would be so hard to discard certain items because when the items are displayed it feels familiar and it feels like Christmas. I hope this makes sense. I use bubble wrap and old, clean white socks to wrap items in and lay in a plastic bin. Thank you for sharing your tips and for sharing your beautiful home.

    Does your chimney not have a flue stop? 😁
    And, of course, any decorations that don't meet this year's criteria can be up cycled in your colours instead of donating, and buying even more plastic, etc!

    In the past I've taken cinnamon sticks and threaded string thru them twisting them around a garland; I've also bought a large orange and stuck cloves in it adding a ribbon to hang it. I have a sensitivity to pine so instead I go for the spices associated with winter.
