Our Christmas Tree and how my Dad did it too!

Mummy has been busy putting up the Christmas decorations  in our house as the weather has been to bad for her to do the lights out side.Any way here's a sneeky peek of our tree!
 
This is how my Dad used to do the tree,he always had a real tree and had special candle holders with candles instead but that was when I was 2 or 3 years old this is when this photo was taken and is the only one I have.My mum may have more.

  3. My magical tree doesn't go up till the first - a tradition I started myself.. ;)

    But Speedy, there seems to be a bit of a lack of bunnies in the Nativity scene .. Maybe we should sneakily replace a couple of those sheepies with bunnies? ;)

  4. SoSOsosos pretty! Christmas trees always make my heart flutter. I love the thought of all those ornaments from childhood. I am worried about putting up lights and glass ornaments this year because Spider is so crazy. So I am just going to do all paper crafted ornaments and garland and no lights. But I am going to use Disco amounts of glitter and metallic embellishments.
    That Nativity scene is precious. I just might try to squeeze my fat butt through the fireplace and claim squatters rights in your living room!

    1. sofa is comfy,you can get some nice shatterproof ornaments now as well.about half of the ornament are from my child hood the other half are one me and the hubby have brought together to add to the collection as some of the old one became so brittle that they broke,but I given them extra padding now when the get put away so I haven't lost any for a long time.
      oh I just thought you can get battery operated fairy lights done with little LED's so no cables to plug in

  13. We always have a real tree, so it doesn't go up until the week of Christmas--otherwise it would be nothing but a pile of needles by Christmas Day! :)
