Christmas Tree & Decorations

Finally yesterday we managed to find some time to head north and buy our beautiful Christmas Tree for this year!  The house smells delicious now - just like a pine forest!     We decorated (in the absence of our children) before we headed out to organise our office Christmas Party last night!  I had to wait until today to take a photo!   If only you could smell photos!

I love decorating the tree and bringing out favourite decorations - new and old.    This is a counted cross stitch decoration "Hope" which I made a couple of years ago!

I was lucky to be invited as an after dinner speaker to a patchwork group last week and fortunately received this lovely decoration in the Kris Kringle swap!   

And this is a favourite from a long long time ago - can you see the date is 1993??   Just below this decoration is another favourite which my sister bought in Montana USA a few years back with all our family names on each Christmas moose.   I love it!    How are you all going with decorating your houses?

    I'm still stitching those angels! Many gifts from the one pattern.

  6. Fiona: Your tree is beautiful, we bought a real tree this year also, the is a tree is cut down two saplings need to be planted so we continue to have trees, it was a cold day when we went to cut our tree.
    Merry Christmas

    I'm afraid I haven't quite gotten to my decorating yet. I've been working a lot of overtime lately and I've been too tired. So I recruited my son whose come up to our place to spend a couple of days and help out. Tuesday is decorating day!
