    Thank you, AnniD.  The front of my home has columns and the look of an southern old plantation, so I thought magnolia blossom decorations appropriate for our tree. :)  the topper is one of those ginormous ornaments I just inverted.

    In my opinion, the best Christmas decorations are ones which hold happy memories...

  • I agree, I love decorations to hold sentimental value. Some of ours have been gifts or souvenirs from christmas ventures, as well as handmade ones which I made last year a set for each of my closest family members, they're just simple log slices with ogham pyrographed into them (clumsily might I add) and last year will all filled glass baubles with dried pine neeldles, sloe berries and madder, again really simple but still its nice we all have matching decs to put on our trees, especially when they're handmade. 
  • Here is my tree.

    My children (now in their 30's) made these decorations years ago with string,sellotape etc and I love them more than any 'posh' ones.

    Brilliant that they've stayed intact! You've taken good care of them!

    That angel looks as if she's been at the Christmas cheer😉
    Those decorations are irreplaceable. Genuine heirlooms.

    In London. Keen but lazy.

    What are the seasonal treats you can't get in Spain?
    Ironically, B3, nothing of UK origin, Jeff de Bruge Belgian chocolates and French cheese we can’t get in Southern France!

    Without an Iceland near us when we lived in Spain we couldnt have got Christmas Pudding @B3 but I believe now its possible to get pretty much anything! Not frozen turkeys though..........but who wants those?😊  Except for Iceland of course!

    Wife put up out trimmings the other day, don't have a tree, she blue tacks Christmas cards to the glass doors, so it does look somewhat seasonal.
