Halloween has officially left the building.

Boo!

But before Samhain disappears entirely, my 2015 Halloween journey would not be complete without a virtual home tour.

Valentine's Mantel | www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

We're all loved up here at OneandSeventy.

After almost 23 years together, Beloved and I rarely exchange gifts and cards these days, but we do like to celebrate Valentine's Day. Well let's face it, we don't need much of an excuse to whip up a (preferably calorific) dinner, crack open a bottle of wine and sit at the table putting the world to rights!

This year, we have even more reason to celebrate. Our only son and his gorgeous girlie have chosen the most romantic day of the year to walk down the aisle. Squeaaaaaal! My little boy is all grown up and I'll soon be the mother of a married man. Feel old? Moi?

In honour of their impending nuptials, it seemed only fitting that Number 1 and his Bride take centre stage on this year's Valentine's Mantel.

Christmas 2014 at The World of Suzy Homemaker

Beloved and I may not do Christmas, but we definitely do Christmas decorating.

Well, I do.

Beloved would be happy if he never saw another bauble again.

NEVER gonna happen!

Happy Halloween from The World of Suzy Homemaker

Yes, yes, I know I'm a day early but we're expecting nice weather tomorrow, so I plan to celebrate Samhain sitting in the garden.

Sitting in the garden.

On HALLOWE'EN!

Autumn Mantel by www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

With each turn of the yearly wheel comes a great swathe of seasonal decorating ideas. Pinterest or Instagram users cannot fail to have noticed all the wonderful images of Autumn's influence in the home.

If you've been following along with my ramblings, you'll know that I like to decorate my mantel for each of the ancient festivals, such as Ostara (Easter) and Samhain (Hallowe'en).

But since launching The World of Suzy Homemaker and my ever-increasing use of the word "pretty" (!), I've also had a hankering for updating my mantel with the Seasons.

Even more so since my recent fireplace surround and mantel makeover!

Spring Mantel 2014 - www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

After what seems like an interminably long (and very soggy!) winter, spring has finally sprung!

Yay!

Meteorologically, the first day of spring falls on March 1st in the Northern Hemisphere. However, for those of us who recognise the astronomical seasons, spring begins with the Vernal or Spring Equinox, otherwise known as Ostara or Eostre, which occurs around March 20th or 21st.

Regardless of what you call it, everyone feels the massive pull of the new season and the magic that this time of year brings. It takes a soul of steel not to appreciate the miracle of rebirth, as evenings get lighter and all around us Mother Nature springs into life, gifting us with blossom, buds and swathes of crocuses and daffodils.
