OH CHRISTMAS TREE
Oh Christmas tree
why did you have to go cream???
Last Sunday I was going to put up my 'White Christmas Tree'
I opened the box and screamed - my white tree had become white AND CREAM!!
After much and I mean MUCH whinging "How could this be???"
Then I realised if all the creams could be together - just how they have been for the last few years and facing the afternoon summer sun and heat of an Australian Christmas - then that is how they turned cream.
I was so annoyed I just chucked it back in the box.
So yesterday I decided I had sooked enough and it was time to get it out again and just place the cream to the back and against the window to face another Aussie Summer
I decided that as it was so late going up I would just use my silver and white decorations.
I love this battenburg lace angel with her little pearl head
Here is another one holding a blue flower and it is next to Riley's decoration.
Everyone in the family has their name on a silver christmas ball.
Pretty ballerina changes colour as the sun shines through the window
Here is my cute Vintage Santa Wreath on the bookshelf next to Barbara Jacksier's wonderful book Waterside Cottages. I love that there is a wreath on the book cover next to my Vintage one
This sweet Santa is on my hutch next to the photo my Grandad is in.
Angel with presents next to my milk glass lamp
This beautiful silver Fairy is on top of my christmas tree
As much as I hate the timber blinds behind it, they are the only thing that works on that window. The sun is so intense in that window that 2 pair of drapes have faded so badly over the last 6 years that the timber blinds were a last resort.
This one is with the lights on
This is one I took today in the daytime light
