Traditional Christmas tree

From now on, we have a decorated Christmas tree. We have bought a huge tree which reaches the ceiling. When I was a kid, with my sister we always desired trees high like this and my childhood sentiment is still with me. 

First I have cut some overhanging branches with pruning shears to give a nice shape for the tree. After I have put plenty of lights - 660 to be exact - and I don’t think that I overdid it! 

And what about the ornaments? Well, we don’t have trendy ornaments. Besides, we don’t have one colour or thematic Christmas tree either. We have more like a traditional tree.

Over the years I collected a great variety of blown glass ornaments. But they all part of the children’s world: Santas, snowmen, candy canes, mushrooms, nutcracker figures, frogs and so on.

I covered the tree stand with a Pottery Barn green velvet tree skirt.
