  2. Just adore the pics. Happy tree hunting. I might just even haul out my box of antique ornaments this year for my feather tree. Like the Polar Express, I can no longer hear the bells.

  10. I'm sure your home will be decorated beautifully, as always I love your pictures, happy tree hunting, I have to admit I succumbed to an artificial tree awhile ago ( shame on me ) but these days I can't be doing with the mess from falling pine needles. Merry Christmas & enjoy the festive season with your family & friends. xx

    1. Hi Barbara ........ please don't be ashamed. The artificial ones are so good now ..... I just can't give up my real tree yet, and, the needles don't drop much now ..... our tree goes out at the end of Christmas, nearly as good as it comes in !!!!
      Happy Christmas to you and yours. XXXX

  12. Beautiful pictures, Jackie! And the snowflakes are dancing over your blog-site again - how you do that is a mystery to me.
    We have the same tradition: buying one new item for the tree. The fairy looks lovely!
