Finally the tree is up!

So we woke up to 4 inches of snow on saturday and after I got the food shop out of the way it seemed like the perfect time to finally put up the tree and decorate it.

First came the snowmen. I have metioned before I collect them, so the room becomes a bit of a minimalists nightmare!

Here are some on one unit. Above are some of my Grandad's flower cigerette cards that I got framed a few years ago.

yet more.....

No christmas is complete without a nativity scene!

Finally the tree. I bought some new lights this year. I love coloured lights rather than clear ones. We have such a mixture of decorations now and this year we have a handful of vintage ones we inherited from Himself's Grandma.

I also found time to do some baking! I fear a relapse tomorrow........


  1. Wow you do like snowmen….. Anyway what is minimalist? (!!!)
