How is your week going?
We are getting a bit Christmassy here with our Christmas tree up and kind of decorated!
I think this time of year is my favourite, so much good will and fun anticipation,
(even if it is super busy with end of year things)!
Our tree this year has a bit of a 'Stray-ya' feel happening, with lots of open space
and nice airy bits, just like our lovely country!
I do like the spindly effect and how it brushes the roof, I had to chop out the top to get it inside, so it has lost it's pointy top. I guess I have to get lots of stars for the multiple tops now!
I think our tree definitely looks like it was made for a hot summer Christmas, all it's branches are splayed out trying to keep cool! Not everyone at our house likes this sparse look though. Middle (Andre) is not at all impressed, and doesn't think it looks Christmassy at all. I am going to put him in charge of decorating the rest of the house, and we can have Christmas decorating 'Andre Style'!
......lots of crochet bits and bobs.....
.....a little crochet decoration from the lovely Lucy's pattern collection.....
....and a sequin masterpiece from the Christmas of 2005 at the Bittern Kindergarten.....it is still as shiny and pretty as ever!
....and here is a new addition to our handmade decoration collection, this little beauty was sent to me by Tania from Ivy Nest blog as part of the Handmade Ornament Swap. Isn't it just gorgeous! I just love it, the stitching is so fine and delicate, ( I wish I could embroider like that) and I am very partial to a bit of lovely bunting! Thank you so much Tania, this little tree will be perfectly at home on our big tree with lots of lovely happy Christmases to come!
