Decorating the tree

Christmas decorations

We got our tree yesterday and decorated it in the afternoon. Here is a selection of photos of our decorations that I took while waiting for cookies to bake. We have a rather eclectic mix since we buy 3 new ornaments each year and these are some of my favourites. What about you? Do you have a Christmas tree tradition?

Decorating for easter

I made these cute eggs and bunnies a couple of years ago from a download courtesy of Sidsel at Spagat Blog. You can view all her downloads here which includes the Easter decorations. I misplaced them last year, I think they got buried in the bottom of the Christmas box. This year we found them again and thanks to the enormous number of eucalyptus trees in the nature strip in the front of our house which shed a great selection of branches and twigs we were able to create our cheery Easter display. Does anyone else decorate for Easter?

The Silly Season

The silly season is upon us and moving at lightning speed this year. Our tree is yet to be purchased and even though December 1st has past we tend to do things later in our house. Mostly because we like to buy live trees. We also have a tradition of adding 3 new Christmas decorations each year to our growing collection. The picture at the top shows 2 of the 3 we bought this year from Country Road. All were chosen by the little one and while I really wanted the red plaid glass ball he went for a plain red instead. And speaking of red, I love this Nordic Light candle holder from Design House Stockholm. The arms can be moved and they come with 4 or 7. Now I think that would look lovely in our dining room.
