Since you asked...


After my last post, a few of my visitors asked to see a photo of the whole of my Christmas Tree as well as the pictures I had taken of the ornaments that adorn it each year. Never one to disappoint if I can at all help it, here are a couple of photos. I'm afraid neither are great pics but you do get an impression of what the tree was like when it was resident in my lounge.

The first pic was taken just before the tree was packed away, along with the photos in my last post. The light was pouring through my lounge window opposite and so the lighting was quite bright for the photo. However, the second photo, which was taken in dim light on Christmas morning, feels more 'right' to me. It's not a great photo but the soft orange glow from the lights always lent a warm feel to the room, and this photo does capture that. Click on the photos to enlarge and I hope you enjoy the pics!

What gorgeous pics. The tree (and the decorations on the previous post) are beautiful. I lived in the UK for nearly 8 years and while there my Mum visited and bought me 3 glass decorations from Liberty (I hate to think how much they cost!)

They were so so delicate. Unfortunately, some years later, they have now all been broken during travels and moving, but they were such special decorations.

I've always either had a) no tree or b) real tree so “packing” a tree as an expression is really funny to me, but I guess it's very convenient— and much cheaper — that way. I didn't have anything this year, though I did miss the trimming of the tree... unpacking the ornaments the scent of the pine...

Speaking of which: tag you're it.

if you're looking for a connection there isn't any :-D
