Christmas Decorating.

Saturday was the day to bite the bullet & start with the decorating. My daughter wanted a black Christmas tree. Don’t know why as we’ve a perfectly good green one. I told her i wasn’t paying $100 but in the January sales this year they were marked down really cheap. Was a lucky find really as the black trees usually sell out. So we’ve 2 trees up now. The black in the lounge & the green one on the verandah.Picture 011

This tree got all the handmade decorations that i received last year & that i made. I run out of spaces for my little village so on the floor it went. And yes i’ve pumpkin lights rather than Christmas lights. Why? Because i can. :)

Just hope no-one bumps this little collection off the coffee table. Hate to see the nativity get broken.

Christmas bags all in a row. Honestly i didn’t know where to put them all & decided under the windows was a good place to hang them.

Never seen a black Christmas tree either, although my boys (when they were teenagers) would have chosen a black one if they'd had a choice. Good for you getting your decorating done. I just can't make myself do anything Christmassy...don't know why! I suppose the spirit will hit soon enough.

Please don't tell my teenagers you can buy black Christmas trees Lol What they don't know wont hurt them right?
