My Christmas Tree 2013


I don’t think there’s any question as to what my favourite time of year is… it’s obviously Christmas! I adore Christmas trees and I’ve collected ornaments for years. This year we got a new (fake!) tree that’s flocked – that is, dusted with “snow”! Quite frankly, the “snow” is a pain in the butt when you’re setting it up, but it certainly gives the tree a wonderful winter-ey feel to it!


My Christmas tree has a general white, black & silver colour scheme to it, however this year I thought I’d be a bit ‘adventurous’ and add in some blue! If you look closely you’ll see some sparkly blue ornaments hanging about. Some of my favourite ornaments are the Eiffel tower and the Globe, both were from Pottery Barn a few years ago.


Every year I add a new dated ornament to the tree, but I still haven’t found one for this year! You’ll also see a variety of Starbucks ornaments on the tree – they are all different and I get a new one each year!

    Thanks for adding me to this linkup!! I love how unique each tree is & I think our trees have the same topper, although you can’t see it in the photo. 🙂
