My New Christmas Tree

Putting up my Christmas tree was a completely new and fresh experience this year. 

I wanted a less commercial feel inside the home....and I wanted a tree that had a more personal slant.

My usual fake green tree has been upgraded to a home grown version with a bit of character.

My new tree (up-cycled from some fallen branches) started like this:

Followed by a lick of paint:

And with decorations ... I love how it looks:

The words 'Joy', 'Hope' and 'Love' feature and encapsulate the importance and meaning of this time of year to me.

Each of us has our own way of decorating at Christmas. I hope you enjoy creating the Christmas mood in your home this year!
