No 21 Christmas Items I Can't Live Without

Hello everyone.


What Christmas item I couldn't live without.


After the recent happenings in our household, I say my priorities have changed and, I would have to say there are three. M. We are very lucky to have M as it could have been a whole different story and L of course. I know they're not Christmassy but Christmas would not be the same without them.


Our Christmas tree is still in the attic and we felt we can't not have a tree of some sort.


Our Christmas tree this year




The decorations are what didn't make it into the attic with a couple of cheap additions. You can't see it very well but there is a small desk top tree hidden in the picture and the little wooden tree lights up. We are in the process of making a small beaded tree that will also go on the table. We are going to remove all the gifts off the table and make a proper display. I'll have to do another show and tell again when we've completed it.
The owl is a new addition for this year.  L wanted for the top of the tree instead of a star or angel so it has become part of the display.

What Christmas item could you not live without?

  1. The only Christmas item that I would never be without is the last card that my son gave to me, it is in a sealed frame to preserve it.

  2. It has to be the tree, of course - real and smelling of pine.

    1. I like the smell of a real tree. We had one when we first moved into this house a number of years ago.

  3. Like Pam, mine is a card. The last one hand written by my beloved Nanna before she became too unwell. I read it every year, kiss it and have a little 'moment'.

    1. That's nice. I still have one of the letters my Gran wrote to me. I could never part with it.
