Oh, Christmas Tree

Two weeks ago we went to get our Christmas tree. We were both really excited to go to the place round the corner from our house and pick the perfect tree.
When we got there a guy asked us what we wanted and picked a tree "like this?" he said. "No, I want that exact tree" I said. Much to the Boy and the employees shock. I feel it normally takes longer than just looking at one tree but this one was perfect!
We took it home & I dressed it immediatley while the boy made a yummy dinner.
Here it is in all its glory!

We've been living together over 2 years now and we started off with pretty but cheap tree decorations with the idea of buying some extra lovely ones each year to build up a collection.

 The cute chubby bird was last years purchase along with a wooden heart and little tree.
Some of them are handmade by me, like the little star in the last picture,
This year I found a little bag of very cute vintage tree decorations at the charity shop for £2 and fell in love with them immediatley. We have 2 trains, one wooden one shiny, a stocking with presents and my personal favourite, the little nutcracker/soldier. Hes just lovely.

We've been spending nights watching movies in the glow of our beautiful tree, drinking hot chocolates and feeling very festive!

Do you have any festive traditions or favourite decorations?

See you soon,

    1. My mums tree is like that - full of random things we made when we were younger!
      Thanks for following, Ill be sure to check out your blog too :) x

  2. As a train freak I love your vintage train decorations! We brought a bulk pack or three on our first Christmas together but we always make sure to add some special new ones each year - be it from somewhere we've visited or just some quirky vintage ones. I've actually got a post lined up for later in the coming week about some of my favorite decorations - each in their own way tells a little story.

    1. I think its nice to add new bits each year - makes it all the more special and then in 10 years time our tree will be full of beautiful decorations and lovely memories!
      Ill have to check out your post on decorations - Im so nosey! :)
