christmas tree

I have been trying to post this all week but have not been able to upload the pics. either blogger is playing up, or it just doesnt like my new(ish) camera. really annoying anyway, but at least it has worked now.

I always find it hard to photograph the christmas tree, it never comes out looking as twinkly and pretty as it really is. This year we have a teeny real tree on the windowsill, and I have left all my usual ornaments in the attic, deciding this year to have a change. I wanted to keep it really simple,because it is so small, and have just got white handmade decorations. Me and the kids made these, using cookie cutters, rolling pins and Das clay. we made patterns by rolling the clay out on (free!) textured wallpaper samples that I got from the DIY store when we bought our tree. I am really pleased at how they turned out. I found the sweet pompom garland at paperchase.

You're right - trees are impossible to photograph. But yours looks very lovely and minimalist. I'm thinking of parting with some of my decorations this year too - it's all just getting a bit much.

Your tree looks lovely Hannah. We've got a real one touching the ceiling, as well as the little tree on the table. Thanks so much for the decorations, although the angel one looked like a ghost shape neseled in the branches yesterday !
