One of my favourite things about Christmas is bringing out the decorations that remind me of people and travels. I only started doing it a few trips ago, but now when I travel, I look for decorations that will remind me of a place. The above bauble is from Oia Santorini in the Greek Islands. It has the year on it, so I'll always remember I got it in 2009 which is an extra bonus for a forgetful girl like me.
|Pretty self explanitory. This decoration came from Sorrento in Italy. They had the most gorgeous little shops in Sorrento, many Christmas shops, but not a lot that had decorations with the name and date on it. It took a lot of hunting to find this little one.|
|I bought these little glass clogs in Amsterdam. Although they aren't actually Christmas decorations, I still put them on the tree every year - and put them away when it all gets packed up!|
|I bought this crown at the Buckingham Palace shop just after I had been on a tour. My awesome friend organised us tickets for us to go and it was amazing. I bought quite a bit of stuff after that tour. Unfortunately a couple of years ago it broke, so it can't hang off the tree anymore, but it was always a little to heavy for it anyway.|
|I bought this at a little gift store in Florida USA (on my second trip there). Although it doesn't usually snow here for Christmas (nor in FL for that matter), I thought it was really cute and it reminds me of my North American friends.|
|I bought this nativity set last year from Aldi of all places! I think it's really cute and it's nice 'cause it's simple but still tells the story.|
|This is pretty explanitory, but for anyone who hasn't heard of Harrods, it is a quite amazing luxury department store in Knightsbridge London UK. They have a special Christmas section that is there all year round.|
|We bought this beautiful PEACE decoration several years ago from Myer. Mum and I walked past and admired it so many times. Then they had a special and we decided to get it. This year it's up very high so that the little one doesn't get to it.|
