I decided to photograph my favourite tree decorations. But just for a change I have not included any of the homemade things on my tree, most of which I've already written about elsewhere on my blog. These are just the old favourites, which I enjoy unwrapping from the tissue paper each year.
|The Bark Bird|
The Bark Bird was given to me by a very close friend, I think possibly about 20 years ago. He is getting more fragile every year, but is still very special.
|The Terracotta Angel|
I think the Terracotta Angel was bought in a shop in Covent Garden in London. It is a bit hard to remember. There are other bigger angels and fairies on my tree, but this tiny ornament is my favourite.
|The Glass Bird|
The Glass Bird is very simple, but looks great when the tree lights are on.
|The Snow Goose|
There seems to be a bit of a bird theme, which I had not intended. The Snow Goose is made of plastic, but looks like frosted glass ...
|The Button Leg Fairy|
This fairy has seen better days. To be frank she is looking a bit rough, and I think my have been out dancing all night on her button legs. I still love her.
|The Gingerbread Men|
I bought these for my children when they were very little, in a cookery shop. Along with gingerbread men cutters with which we had a lot of fun.
I would love to hear about (or see) your favourite tree decorations ...
