O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree...
I thought I could show you some of my
Christmas tree decorations. Not many,
just some very old special ones and a couple of fun ones.
You will see there is no rhyme or reason to my tree,
I just put an eclectic mix of ornaments on it,
because that's the way we like it.
The tree in all it's Christmas glory, both taken at night,
one with the flash on and the other with the flash turned off.
This old plastic Santa is so old and I don't know where he came from but I rather think he once belonged to my sister who
moved to Australia what seems like a lifetime ago.
She also owned the little gauze fairy on the right.
Very olden pieces, not that she is mind you :)
Both pieces precious to me.
These ones are more recent buys and are just for fun.
On the left is All Black Santa, dressed in our national football team's colours of, you've guessed it, all black!
He is accompanied by fishing Santa
in honour of my GKB who loves fishing.
This angel was sent to us one year by the one of the children we sponsored for several years. I always put her in a prominent place on the tree, somewhere in the front, so we can think of her at this time of the year even though her sponsorship is finished.
Our tree topper is a silver star with a dove just beneath,
not a good photo of them I'm afraid but you get the idea.
And this is a little glimpse of my glitter church
and an ice house I have on my kitchen table.
I'm wanting to make a little village
but as yet only have four houses - but four is
more than none and something to start with :)
