Christmas time at home

I arrived at my parents house in the country for christmas, this afternoon. Its so lovely to be somehwere peaceful, no reminders of work or uni.

When I got home mum and my sister had already decorated the house. All the decorations mean so much to me because they represent 22 years of christmas memories. '

This little guy is as old as me, I remember him being on the tree since I was knee high to a grasshopper.

Santa on his park bench, too cute.

I remember my sister picking this out as her Santa stocking when we were just little girls.

And the amazing tree!

I wish everyone a very merry Christmas, full of love, family and friends! Travel safely and I look forward to hearing everyone’s Christmas stories.

Being in the country means I also have very slow internet so not sure how often I can post in the next two weeks, all depends on how much my patience can handle.

Happy Holidays!!!


  1. Aww! I know exactly what you mean. Our Christmas tree is one of those fake ones we can take down and store away to use over and over again, and we've had it for... gosh, who knows. Probably my entire life. We always just add to the tree. So there are tons of memories in the ornaments. :)

    You have a lovely tree. :) Happy Christmas!

  2. Aw, your parents house is so very cute. I love it. Especially that stocking. Even all these years later it still holds its childish charm.
