Way back and wordful Whensday - O Tannenbaum, o tannenbaum... or not so!
Joining Cheryl for a Way back Wednesday and
Playing with Angie for Wordful Wednesday.... all in one today.
You have asked, and so you shall see: behold our Christmas tree.
I am not particularly fond of real fir tree type trees (be they fake or live) - they are particularly un African, un summer - whatever. I like alternative type trees. We have used this one for the last 4 years - next year I am planning something else.
I have a thing for angels - I just love them. So apart from the usual bobbles, ribbon and lights (and a few wooden ornaments left over from my childhood), we have only angels and one star (for the top) of our tree. I buy an angel (or group of angels ) every year since the Lil' Miss birth - so let's go back in history:
2005: Blue wire angel. I bought her at a Christmas market.
2006: Red wire angel - bought from a street vendor.
2007: Yellow wire angel - also from a street vendor.
2008: Stainless steel angels (3 - 2 are identical) bought at a Christmas market for a school for Autism. I love these - my favorites, any time.
2009: Tin angels (s angels, two bear angels) - chosen by the Lil' Miss at a department store.
I have two "older" angels that I am storing until the kids are bigger - delicate glass and handmade tin.
Thanks for having a look at our Christmas tree. So how does yours look?
