Festive Friday: O Christmas tree

I love having a nosey at everyone else’s Christmas trees. Everyone has such different tastes so it’s fun to see the personal touches they add. I like mine to be filled with all different kinds of unique ornaments, and try to pick up new ones each year. I love that I have a mix of old and new ornaments, and so many of them have a little story behind them.

My Christmas tree

So I thought I’d share some of my favourite ornaments with you. I’ve got several traditional style ones…

I made this cinnamon decoration myself using real cinnamon sticks, and the cute deer is a real golden oldie – it was one of my Grandma’s!
