and a tree of glass

Christmas Tree

I have had my tree up for a while, but I am only now getting a chance to blog about it. Last year was the first year that I put up my own Christmas Tree. I would have loved to have one before this but some of my previous housemates had cats, and I was too afraid that they would destroy my tree. It wouldn't have been too much of an issue if I used plastic decorations but I wanted glass, so I waited until the house was cat free. I chose a smaller tree because I have a small house and I have it placed on my dining table. This shows that I don't use my dining table for what it is intended for very often.

As you can see it is pretty hard to photograph glass objects. I don't know my way around my DSLR enough to work with focus. I also haven't found a tree topper I like yet. I'd like to find something simple and modern. A lot of what I have come across is covered in glitter, which just isn't me. I'd love to have two trees, or even two sets of decorations for the one tree. Then I could have either a modern tree with lots of metal and glass, and a handmade tree with a Scandinavian feel.

Maybe one day.

I hope everyone else's tree is trim and pretty.

Until next time.
Love, love Elle.
