This is our couch. I love it. It's a good size for hubby and me to stretch out and enjoy a good movie night, and the deep seats make it oh so comfy!

But constantly washing those white covers all the time is not fun. The stains aren't obvious in this photo, but they are there! Eating dark chocolate on it is the worst...and I'm not going to stop eating my favourite food group on my favourite couch! 

I've had this couch for several years. It came to Queensland with me when I moved here from Sydney a couple of years ago, and we added the chaise to it earlier this year. I hope to have it for many years to come, but if it's going to stay I need to find a solution to my stain-exposing, dirt-revealing couch cushion covers!

I've only spent Christmas in two other places outside of Australia: Canada and India. While I enjoyed experiencing other countries' Christmas traditions I'll always love an Aussie Christmas! What's better than prawns, pavlova, backyard cricket and an afternoon swim in the pool on a warm Christmas Day? 

So, this year I thought I'd do a bit of DIY Christmas decorating using things I found at the beach and in the Aussie bush. Never was so simple!

All you need is some twine, scissors, driftwood (I found mine at the beach, but you could use some dowel from the hardware store if you don't have access to this) and some foliage of your choice.

Arrange your driftwood into a triangle shape... 

 And secure by...
