Sharing some christmas photos with you

Last Update: January 02, 2021

Hello everybody

I would like to share some Christmas photos with you.

This year was very quiet, Michael, me, and the small life-tree.


The livingroom

We gave each other some practical presents. I got a nice winter coat and Michael wished a table saw. That did not fit under the tree. We cut off the picture from the box and I wrapped some Christmas paper around it. He plans to make some artful items in the garage.


My light winter coat

My grandparents and my parents always used real candles for the tree. There is a company in Holland that makes them. I have continued with this tradition. Around the corner is a bucket with water, just in case. It is of course important to have a life-tree as otherwise the risk is bigger. Never leave the tree alone when the candles are burning. In all these years of family tradition, there never was an accident.

Lighting the Christmas tree candles

By the way, that tree decoration with the color picture hanging bottom left is as old as I am. My Mother bought it for the first Christmas in Australia where I was born in 1950. Every year it is hanging in the tree.

so lovely, it brings the whole platform to life...thank you.
Funny thing I bought my other half a workbench saw this christmas. He has become very DIYy since lockdown and his shed is becoming a real man's equivalent of a "Craft/Hobby room"

Your living room looks so beautiful. Thank you for sharing :)

Good afternoon Cordelia,

Thank you for your visit and comment.
When Michael moved to Spain in August 2016 he took over the garage. I still have a small corner with my garden boots, small garden tools, good earth and flowerpots. That is it.
Happy you liked the photos.

Good evening Frank,

Real candles give that extra touch, but one has to be careful.
Best wishes for you too.

Good evening Kathleen,

Christmas was small and peaceful. As the rules dictated, only family allowed. We both do not have family in Spain so we could not invite anybody.
Thank you for your good wishes. I hope you will have a successful and healthy/happy 2021.
