So happy!! My christmas tree is up, my new free tree as well, thank goodness for Freecycle. This is a beautiful 6ft tall as my old tree was just becoming far too small for my collection of baubles and trimmings, lol. It's up in my dining room this year so that when I have friends over for dinner we have a more festive atmosphere, as we invariably just stay chatting round the table when the meal is done.
Now for a tour of some of my favourite decorations. I adore this embroidered heart that I bought in Libertys many years ago
This is a contender for the oldest decoration on the tree, a children's dummy, that I think came from my 'auntie' Hilda, who lived across the street from us when I was a very small child.
Here is my poodle in a shoe and wooden heart. Love poodles, don't know why as I'm very much a cat lover but there is just something about poodles, and I love hearts.
This little sailor is only 2 inches high and could be very old, he's been in our family since I was a child but his origins are lost in the mists of time.
This little cheeky cherub is made of stockinette and I love her, again another purchase from Libertys. She always has to be well up the tree so she is away from the cat claws. Incidently have you tried putting up a christmas tree with 4 cats behaving as 10 week old kittens, it makes it interesting to say the least, lol.
My latest decoration, one of my own hanging atc decorations, they look lovely on the tree though I do say so myself. Looking forward to seeing everyone elses trees over the coming weeks!
