A tree from Australia…

Here’s my Christmas tree… all the way from Down Under to be part of Colleen at Silver Threading’s Christmas Trees Around the World.

First, here’s the story:

It began with a colour theme, lovingly selected by my little star. “Red, white and silver”, she said. And so we did, retrieving the boxes from storage and sorting out the decorations. (There are baubles on the tree with names of each member of the family. They go on the tree no matter the colour theme.)

Having put the tree together, he who is now a young man highly attuned to what is trendy and/or unique, decided hanging the lights vertically or around the outer edge of the tree was passé.  And so with adoring sister, they came up with this.

“Let’s wrap the lights, all of them, around the tree trunk, so the lights would shine from within…”

And here is the result.


I am still not convinced… 🙂  Think a new trend will catch on?

  1. Florence! Your tree is beautiful! I love how the lights glow from the inside out – much like your heart. It is so pretty! Thanks for sharing from all the way down under! I love it! ❤

          1. I agree. It looked rather odd but people were buying them. I’ve yet to see one up in somebodies house but I guessing that they will be the subject of many a conversation. 🙂

            Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings to you and your family, Florence. 🎅
