The Free From Farmhouse has finally got festive! After a slow start, the tree is up, the Christmas candles are burning and the baking has begun.
One of my favourite parts of getting ready for Christmas has always been getting the decorations out. We are an eclectic, mix and match family – never going for a refined display but more of the loved and lived look.
One of our traditions that I love has been inherited from my husband’s family. He is American so Christmas is a big deal and rather than tree decorations they have ‘ornaments’. Each year, since they were little, his parents have bought him and his sister a new Christmas ornament. And they have kept them all! We have fabric decorations from 1977, commemerotative Texas stars. and a lot of Moose – as that’s Carl’s nickname from his Dad!
Once I entered the family I also begun to get a Christmas ornament every year, we have collected our own – like the figurine from the cruise ship where we met – and they all tell a story of our life together.
