Festive Friday Photo ~ Tree.

Yes it’s Friday! And a good one for me as I break up for 2 weeks holiday off work. It’s literally like being back at school again ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m joining in with Kate’s Photo Scavenger Hunt which is every Friday before Christmas day.

18th December : Tree – a snap shot of your tree, this year’s, last year’s, the black and white one of you as a tiny tot helping to decorate, the one on the village square, that shiny white one in the shop, a native tree bedecked with lights and bird feeders – any festive tree ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the second year in a row that I’ve put up the tiny twiggy tree instead of getting down our bigger one from the loft. Pure laziness I think. And maybe a hankering for a real tree. I think we will look for a real one next year. ๐Ÿ™‚

Meanwhile, look it’s not just trees that get decorated….

Enjoy your weekend. X

  1. What a cute twig tree. In some ways I prefer them to conifer trees. However, the decorated reindeer are wonderful. Here’s to a better 2021.

  2. I love your little twiggy tree & am struggling with what to do this year as I’m just not in the Xmas mood. Would like to do what we used to when the kid’s were young, but that makes me sad too, as we’ve not seen our two boys for over a year now, though we will get too DD’s here in Oz over the break, but of course don’t know when we’ll see DD in UK. I’ll post something now we have I’net again after last weeks hassles. Take care, stay safe & huggles.

  3. Your little twiggy tree looks lovely. One of Lily’s favourite traditions is decorating our tree and I hope our new one will last us a few years. X

  4. I can relate!! We used to drive up into the provincial forest and cut our tree. It was usually an ugly Charlie Brown tree but it wasnโ€™t the tree so much, it was the outing. Weโ€™d built a fire and Iโ€™d cook biscuits in a cast iron pan, and the kids would roast sausage. It was usually freezing cold but weโ€™d have a thermos of hot chocolate. And driving home weโ€™d listen to the Vinyl Cafe (which you can find episodes of on line. โ€œDave Cooks the Turkeyโ€ was a favourite!! Now I have a small artificial tree with fibre optic lights. Itโ€™s pretty, doesnโ€™t drop needles everywhere but thereโ€™s no smell and I canโ€™t hang ornaments on it. I was just saying to my daughter that next year we should get a real tree. ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„

    1. Great story! Both types of tree have their advantages but getting a real one occasionally will feel like a treat. And you can get those ornaments out. They need hanging somewhere for all to see. X

  5. Ours is a tiny artificial one but it has lots of memories on its branches. Back in the UK we had real trees but we’re not usually here so there’s no real need. Christmas is family, isn’t it? Zoom, or otherwise. Wishing you a peaceful happy time, doing the things you like to do. Merry Christmas! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I think the twiggy tree looks lovely and cute. Looks very homely and decorated with a lot of fun. You don’t need to be extravagant to get into the spirit of Christmas. Over here we don’t have a tree here…never had and Christmas is more about getting together and relaxing together. I guess most years we just like it simple – simple to put up, more time for fun, and then simple to put away next year. Have a wonderful festive season ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks for commenting Mabel. Simple is definitely good, I like that my tree is easy to assemble and put away. I think this year lots of people have put more effort into decoration due to the world’s current situation. Have a lovely Christmas too. xx

      1. That’s a good point. Many people would be spending more time at home and more time for decorating, and maybe more time for baking and making treats for the season too ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Love your little twiggy tree. We havenโ€™t got a tree at all this year, having lost our little potted one over the summer. We were hoping to have the benefit of a tree in the holiday cottage we were due to stay in but sadly we can no longer go … that pesky COVID ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
