Oh Christmas Tree ....

Driving back from Sydney yesterday and we came across some beautifully shaped Christmas trees on the side of the road for sale ... with the money going to local charities .... so of course we had to get one and then try and fit it into the car .... and we had our youngest daughter (22 and with long long legs) with us too .... so we are are trying to fit the tree into the back of my new orange car ....



We did manage to get it in and it was lovely to drive home another couple of hours and smell the beautiful pine scent ...   and then to decorate  ....  this is a new hand painted decoration I bought in Hawaii ...


Another cute Hawaiian decoration ....


And I couldn't resist this one in Hawaii ...  an outrigger canoe Christmas personalised with all the names of the children .... and the name of the outrigger canoe ... Nala .... couldn't forget the dog!! 


It's always lovely putting up some favourite decorations ...


They all bring back lots of lovely memories .... a trip to Salzburg ....


Received from a stitching friend ....


My canvas work creation ....


Another cross stitch decoration ....


Joy and Peace .... it's what we should all be striving for this Christmas !


And this cute one made by Sylvia ...


I think I have to confess my canvas work addiction ....


And did I mention Peace???


I love the simplicity of this gorgeous wooden decoration from Norfolk Island ....


And here is Santa's little helper having finished decorating the tree .... thanks Chelsea !!   It is always fun to have at least one of the children at home to help decorate !!
