My well-travelled Christmas Tree

I’m not much for co-ordinating and matching items in the house. If I like it, or it means something, then it’s in. It doesn’t matter that if it isn’t a particular colour or doesn’t’ go with anything else. It’s exactly the same with the Christmas decorations. Our tree doesn’t have coloured baubles, instead it has my collection of decorations from around the world.

It’s not everyone who can lay claim to the fact that they have a dreadlocked snowman; Santa driving a pair of clogs or a holly clad boomerang on their tree, but these are the decorations I treasure each year and which make decorating the Christmas tree extra special.

My mum likes to travel and whenever she goes away she always comes back with a Christmas decoration from the country she has visited. I honestly don’t know how she does it. It can be mid-July, when shops are thinking ice lollies and sun tan cream, but she still manages to find something Christmassy.

Here are some of my favourites.
