Well, interpretations of Christmas trees.
We don't have a traditional tree because a) we have an inquisitive toddler and b) I have an allergy. So in the interests of keeping the baubles intact and my not spending the beginning of 2014 on steroids and all kinds of medication, we've got a few alternatives.
First up: the kitchen. No fairy lights in the twigs I collected and decorated, but lots of colourful baubles. Matt, shiny, glittery. Understated? No. Cheery? Most definitely.
I reserved the gold ones for the living room. I'm back on gold after many years of preferring silver. So a few bare branches with little gold baubles. For some reason it remind me of the nursery rhyme 'I Had a Little Nut Tree'.
We have lots of candles and fairy lights on the go too. And I have to say, I don't think the house suffers for the lack of a tree.
As well as adorned twigs and branches there are bits of greenery in vases and a kitsch little tinsel tree in the bedroom.
And the paperwhites have come good, just in time for Christmas. They look beautiful and smell lovely too.
Hope you're enjoying your home comforts as much as we are.
