Christmas traditions

One of our little traditions is that at some point during the year when on holiday or visiting somewhere special or new, we buy a new decoration for our Christmas tree. 

We’ve been doing this since we bought our first house together in 2003 and so as you can imagine our tree is now full of these random decorations. It doesn’t make for a ‘styled’ tree but it does mean that looking at the decorations on our tree always evokes lots of happy memories and conversations about where we got each of them. 

As our girls are growing our tree is also becoming populated with homemade decorations.

Our most recent addition to the tree is a Pinocchio that we bought when visiting Sienna. 

So, our tree might well look a bit mismatched and out of sync with the rest of our decorations but it’s like that for a very good reason.
