Our Tree

My mum and dad decided that now that we are in Aus they would downscale their Christmas activities and help us to upscale ours, so they bought themselves a tiny tree and donated their big one with all the decorations to us. I cant tell you how thrilled I was because they have decorations dating back to the 1940's among their collection. We added a few of our own (but we did not have many as in SA we always celebrated Christmas at our seaside holiday home). There was a string of lights from the 1940's which finally died this year but Darren has promised to convert them to LED lights so they can live on, however I think that may take a while (more of that when it is done). Ta-Da

My absolute best: a blown glass clip on mushroom from the 1940's
