A bit closer....

...to getting there.....The tree is up.......









































The lights are on and sparkly. For me, it has to be a twinkly tree. Twinkle equals magical, and that's the way it has to be in our house! I adore sitting cosied up in the evenings, watching the tree sparkle and shine.


I was so pleased with how the fimo snowflake decorations turned out, I shall plan to make some Snowflake garlands for my peg rails for next year. Meanwhile, the ones made this year grace the tree.

Happy Monday eveyone

  6. Hi Vanessa,

    Your tree looks great! I love the white and red deco. Such a clever idea to use fimo. I still have some of those little packages laying in the cupboard, from the time the girls were a bit younger. I will have a look and see if I can use it!

    Enjoy your new week!

    Lieve groet, Madelief

  15. Twinkle, twinkle little star.

    So pretty and the decorations worked out well - I do love a twinkly tree and the smell when you enter the room for the first time in a while - mmmmmm all pine and woody.
