My Christmas tree!!

I haven't had a Christmas tree in my apartment for the last 3 years. That's because I have been traveling to Bergen to spend Christmas with the children. I did collect Christmas ornaments for 25 years, but they are all in Bergen now! But this year I wanted one. I have started a new collection, and today I purchased a tree! It's an artificial tree, and I actually prefer them to the natural ones. I think it's crazy to by a really expensive natural tree and then trow it out after 3 or 4 weeks!!! I always felt bad when I did that :((
I don't have a lot of Christmas feeling ....as usual, maybe because it's raining all the time. But the tree did help a lot :))
















As my collection is not enough to fill the whole tree, I needed to fill it with all the possible items I could think of!!

Your tree and your apartment look so pretty! Love the little chairs on the tree. So cute. :D

ooooooooooooo i love it all!!! the bits and bobs on the tree are very special :D Linda x

It looks lovely, and the unusual 'decorations' on it make it really special I think.

I do know what you mean about throwing out a real tree after a short time but the really special thing about Christmas to me is the smell of the tree - that's what always evokes memories of all those happy days right back to my childhood. However, in those days we simply went out into the countryside and took a branch from a tree, not like these days when we have to buy a whole tree and they are just too expensive, so we haven't had a real tree for a long time :(

I hope you will have a lovely Christmas, and that the rain stops and perhaps it snows a little to make everything look beautifully clean and white.

Es un árbol preciso, Synnove!! Y el resto de la decoración también ha quedado muy bien!! Me ha gustado mucho la idea de añadir miniaturas a la decoración del árbol, para el año que viene voy a hacer lo mismo!! Un besazo enorme y Feliz Navidad!!

Wowww! a beautiful tree! I also have a fake tree, I would like to have a true and fragrant, but it would be a waste, if it could not survive in a pot ...
I like your decorations, and I love the ornaments glittering glass and silver, in your home!
GREETINGS!! that your future is bright and full of love and happiness!
Merry Christmas!

kisses

Your tree is beautiful, I like the decorations you put in it. Your place looks beautiful.
By the way I don't have a tree in my flat, not enough space. Fortunately there is always a big one at My brother's where all the family will be on December 25th.
Merry Christmas
Geneviève

Thank you Bambi,Roelie and Ana :))
Cockerina, how about buying just a branch to get the smell :))
Jeanette and Irene: I dont`t have a lot of silver, but I like to group what I have, that way, what I have looks better!!
Christel; I am not sure if i have seen it somewhere..but the idea of using minis on the tree is great :)
Geneviève, how about a mini tree to put on your table ....andyou can make miniature decorations to put on it!!! :))
I wish you all a really peaceful and wonderful Christmas!!!!

Your tree is very beautifull, so are the decorations. I also love your silver tray with the flower in the pot.
I also have a artificial tree for the same reason. I burn candels with chrismas scent for the spacial scent.
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Newyear.
