Oh Christmas Tree

Thought I'd play along with Sophie today and show off our Christmas tree. I tried to take some close up shots but my photography is woeful and they kept turning out fuzzy. Our tree is full of handmade paper chains, angels made out of foil and bells laced in tinsel It won't be winning any Martha Stewart styling awards but its 100% genuine and it reflects our humble home and the wonderful life we share with our two gorgeous girls. 

Making its way to our tree this year, is a very special gift from a lovely lady who makes me laugh daily. I won this as part of a generous giveaway last week. It's Netherlands heritage adds an air of sophistication and international flair that compliments our paper chains so well!
I went a little crazy with the white spray paint on the weekend and made this decoration of twigs and ornaments as a table centrepiece.

I won't subject you to any more out-of-focus photos. They are driving me mad! If you'd like to show us your Chrissy tree, head over here and join in.

Aww that's lovely! Chrissy trees are all about getting the family involved for the decorating - bugger the Home Beautiful picture-perfect tree!! Some of my fave memories involve making decorations for the tree as a kid... dodgy as they looked, they made me so proud, hanging on the tree!

Your Christmas room looks really beautiful. Every time I see a real Chrissy tree looking so special, I regret our plastic purchase. But still... I guess it works for us.

Thanks for putting my button in your sidebar! I really appreciate it. Good luck to you in the Gorg Gives. x
