Anyone who knows me and has been to our house will tell you that I Am Not A Hoarder. The opposite, in fact. I am a minimalist to the point where someone once asked me if we’d been burgled. The only space clutter gathers is No 1 Son’s bedroom. Everything else is pretty much hidden from view and if you open most of the cupboards you’ll find them bare (apart from my beauty products, obvs *cough*).
But our Christmas tree decorations, many of them bought on our travels, means that they need a whole cupboard to themselves. They’re a cool alternative to souvenirs and each has its own memories. As we’ll be putting them up in a few weeks I thought I’d share with you a few of my favourites. Enjoy.
The Swarovski crystal wreath came from Cologne. It looks really beautiful with the Christmas tree lights sparkling behind it.
And speaking of kitsch, I give you my beloved Cath Kidston baubles. Admittedly they didn’t travel much further than Wimbledon, but they look practically vintage, like they were made in the Fifties. I big fluffy heart them.
