It's Christmas time...

Happy December everyone! Last week when my brother was staying at our house he woke me up on my day off so I decided to pester him to help me put up the christmas tree!

Mum and I had bought quite a few new ornaments this year - we didn't mean for them to have a theme but they all ended up being quite neutral & red toned. Weirdly the reindeers on either end of the top row both had their legs break off! Unfortunately the red one's leg was gone by the time I got home but I managed to glue the white one's back on.

The new ornaments we bought this year!



Some of the old, filler ornaments.
Tom reluctantly decided to "help" but he put three ornaments on the tree and then sat down. This is how putting up the tree really went down....


Hope you have all enjoyed putting up your tree!

    1. Thank you! :) I really do love Christmas, even though an Australian christmas is nothing like the traditional white christmas - it's very hot, almost to the point where you can't breathe haha.

      Will check out your blog now :)

  2. Your ornaments all look so cute! My family has been pretty terrible and keeps putting off getting a new tree, haha. Even though we always use the same decorations I'm still looking forward to it though! :)

    1. We never usually buy new ornaments but this is the first year I've earned my own money so I splurged a bit :P
      Also either next year or the year after I'll have moved out of home so I'm going to need my own decorations :)

  3. Ah I've yet to decide if I shall put up the tree this year. It's often hard when you don't have much family to celebrate, so I may decide against it. Always nice to get festive though, glad you're getting into the spirit!

  6. You have such cool, unusual ornaments! At my house, we always have the same type; usually just the snow flakes and ice cones. You're going to have the most original tree around :D
