O Christmas Tree!

.




its that time of year again! we bought our tree today, we were meant to get a teeny one but instead we ended up with a medium-ish sized one. We just about squeezed it into our flat, it had to loose a few branches just so that we can get into the room!
This year we thought we'd go for bright colours and use these baubles. My mum collected all these vintage ones and gave me them for xmas last year {there are about 3 more boxes!}...they remind me of Willy Wonker especially the stripy ones!

To go with them, I made some paper bunting on my sewing machine out in the shed...it was so warm and cosy in there with the heater on, I didn't want to come indoors.

 this old cracker box has been in our family for generations...I love it!

 and i also love these hand painted weird and wonderful designs, i think they might be late 50s or early 60s.

 Nao and his precision work on wiring-up the baubles...


 its a bit minimalist and modernist, but I like a bit of change compared to our workshop decorations.


 Yep, feelin very christmassy now, been singning "Chwistmas twee O Chwistmas twee" all day, much to the annoyance of Nao and Plimsoll I'm sure.
