Xmas in our house

Today I've started putting up the Christmas decorations.

This is the main tree in the sitting room. The colour theme is gold, red/Burgundy and green.

I've mixed a few vintage decorations with more recent ones. This Santa's head belonged to my parents-in-law. We inherited some vintage decorations from them when they died and they remind me so much of my childhood as we had a lot of this type of decoration when I was a child that my parents had bought when they first got married. They still use some of them.

This is another vintage dec.

This angel is one of this year's purchases. I love angels and have several. This one is in my favorite shade of green.

This angel was bought in the Czech Republic last year. The Czechs make the most wonderful glass Christmas decorations.

This bauble I bought in Harrods in London when DD and I were there for a few days in 2001. We had a great time and this bauble is a lovely reminder of a lovely time spent with DD.

This bauble is one of quite few that are clear glass with glittery decoration on them.

This is another of this year's purchases.

One of my favorites.

This one was bought for me by DD as a Christmas present a few years ago from the Pier chain of shops which unfortuately have closed down. I really miss these shops.

This beaded ornament I made a good few years ago. It is made from perforated paper with a beaded decoration. I really enjoyed making it.

This one is one of four I made from a Pinflair kit I bought at one of the shows. These were great fun to make but didn't half give me a sore thumb!

Three more days to my giveaway draw! Please take part. This tree needs a new home
