Especially for Pippa! Because she wanted it so badly; a real Christmas tree!
After years of all kinds of homemade XL wood & wool x-mas trees, we finally have an old-fashioned green Christmas tree with candle lights again.
In 2008 we made our first xl wooden x-mas tree. It stayed in our backyard for a whole year and in December 2009 we moved it in the house again.
In 2009 we had the h e a r t tree.
In 2010 we had a p a s t e l tree.
In 2011 we had a c h r i s t m a s - s t o r y tree.
In 2012 we even had a c h r i s t m a s - c a b i n e t.
Pippa and I had lot's of fun picking a tree last Tuesday. We checked all x-mas trees and ultimately we chose the most beautiful one...
Yesterday I bought a tree stand because the wooden stand I made myself was not 'functioning'. We decorated the tree with pastel pompons and real candles.
This morning I changed the real candles (so beautifully scandinavian...) in the tree for an old-fashioned light cord with almost-real-candles. (for safety sake)
Just love the tree and it smells so good...
