Christmas Tree Time!

S has been away for work for the last few days so I have amused myself in the most appropriate way I could think of for this time of year - I put up and decorated our Christmas tree. 

It was good timing as we don't quite see eye to eye on the topic of Christmas decorations.  He thinks that as we will be away at Christmas there is no need for a tree but I don't see why that means I should get to enjoy several weeks of gazing at a beautiful tree - plus all the other ornaments around the house.  He also thinks that a good Christmas tree looks like a tinsel monster threw up all over it, while I don't usually have any tinsel on the tree.  However he does love it once it is all up, so I feel I used my time wisely.

Along with the heavily laden tree we have decorations all over our lounge room.  Christmas comes just once a year but I'm going to enjoy the prettiness for as long as I can!

I hope you enjoy these snippets of our Christmas tree - it is guaranteed to put a huge smile on my face every time I walk through the door.

  3. Funny on the differences between men and women on some things :) I don't mind tinsel but do think it should be used in moderation and in thin strips. Your tree certainly looks wonderful without it!

    1. Even if I did like tinsel I don't think I would have room for it Kari! The tree is rather "full".

  4. Totally into the little Santa on your tree. Super cute! Tinsel is a bit overrated - it's hard to untangle out of your tree post-Christmas! Or maybe that's just me :S

    1. That fat santa is totally one of my favourites. He is actually a bell and my Mum gave him to me.
