|(Sarah found these super perfect NZ Christmas ornaments - pretty|
much the only thing we purchased to make this tree happen. They give
our tree a homely feel as our NZ roots deepen.)
Well in the effort to save a little money in postage, we are doing a Merry Christmas blog post this year. It will not feel the same in your hands and you will not get that same fuzzy feeling from getting a card addressed specifically to your or yours, but we hope you still feel our love being sent your way!
We have tried to take a few fun pics from our Christmas tree to add some festivity. Our tree/branch, stump, and most ornaments were found out in parks while on our walks (no worries, all kosher, we think). No making fun of our tree!
|(Yes our tree is just a little bit scraggly but that's|
OK by us. We are loving "Frederick" just the
same. I named him that and he loves it.)
|(Sarah loves finding Paua shells and they are a huge NZ |
deal. People make jewelry and all other sorts of pretty
things out of them. The Maori have always used them
to decorate their statues among other things. They have
a very distinct look to them!)
|(Our garland and rings were made courtesy of Sarah's mad magazine recycling skills.)|
|(Google has a new auto awesome that tweaks your photos. It just happened to put the sparkles to this shot of the tree, almost creating the same affect as Christmas lights! Cool.)|
|(Up close Paua Shell and you can see our homemade snowflake in this pic as well.)|
