Been thinking of how to invite the Christmas spirit into the house this year, especially since it’s my first time to decorate my own home. Yesterday, had this idea to raid our garden in Tagaytay for twigs or whatnots that I could piece together, and went home with this:
Told our caretaker to look for a nice sturdy branch that I could use as a tree… I’m super happy it fit in the car. The green leaves / branches are from grown pine trees (they’re not the pine needle variety, but I assume they’re from the same family) — will wait to see how long they’ll stay green, but the dried brown version also looks lovely.
There’s nothing like green and nature to make one smile a wide smile 🙂
Time to start wrapping gifts and painting Christmas cards and balls for the tree!
