Oh, Christmas Tree

So, decorating the Christmas tree is one of my favourite parts of Christmas, there are many traditions surrounding the process that haven't changed since I was teeny-tiny! Our tree is not real, as we have a cat and a dog that love to attack the real ones, but still it's huge and wonderful. Some decorations are vintage, some are home-made and some are brand new; the one thing they have in common is that they absolutely do not match in any way whatsoever. Normally, this would send me into a heart attack, however they all seem to come together beautifully. So, I thought I'd share a few bits and bobs with you! The massive colourful baubles are our newest addition to the tree, but I love them all, especially the green and red one with the snowflakes...







One of the Three Kings (we call him Casper), all hand made! 


This clear star, is one of many stars and snowflakes I collect from Swarovski each year. We've been doing it since, 2005 and they just look so pretty against the lights!


The last one is one of our vintage Harrods pieces, they belonged to my grandmother and she bought them over 50 years ago! Pretty impressed they've managed to last that long, especially in my house!
Merry Christmas, I want to see pictures of other fabulous trees, so if anyone knows of any, link me!
