On our last day of school, it was snowing (yes, again!) pretty bad when I drove back home, so rather than waiting for the next day, I stopped on my way home to buy a tree. I mean, we could have been stuck at home all weekend! Actually, this time, we just had an inch of snow...

 

Le dernier jour d'école, je suis rentrée sous la neige (et oui, encore!). Du coup, je me suis arrêtée en chemin pour acheter mon sapin, de peur d'être encore bloquée par la neige par la suite et de ne pas pouvoir me conformer à la tradition qui veut que mon sapin soit fait le premier weekend des vacances!

 

And tadaam!

 

Et voilà!

By night...

It's quite tiny as a) it had to fit in my tiny car; b) I had to carry it on my own; c) I didn't want to buy new ornaments as I have more important house-related things to spend on.

Also, it tends to lean on the right but that's because a) it's natural; b) we had a little cat-cident yesterday!!!

Il penche un peu du côté où il va tomber comme dirait ma Maman, mais c'est l'apanage des vrais sapins, et puis hier, nous avons eu un petit "chat-cident" qui n'a pas arrangé les choses!!!

There is nothing glittery in it... Nearly everything is made of fabric or wood or paper... No plastic in my tree, please.

 

Je n'aime pas les paillettes dans mon arbre. Je trouve ça superbe quand je les vois en magasin, mais une fois chez moi, cela ne va pas avec l'atmosphère.

All these ornaments I bought years ago when I lived in an apartment in the Parisian suburbs and had decorated it "cottage style" (I just didn't know it was called that at the time).

 

Toutes ces décorations ont des années et avaient été achetées à Castorama... Bref, rien de bien folichon, mais pile dans le style!

I was already fond of hearts!!! It wasn't in fashion yet!!!

 

Tiens, j'étais déjà fan des coeurs!

The only "expensive" ornament I own is this litlle angel-ballet dancer that I bought in Quebec some ten years ago (gosh, so long ago? - it seems like yesterday as I remember perfectly well the shop...)

 

Ma seule décoration un peu précieuse est cet(te) ange-ballerine, souvenir d'une journée passée à Québec...

OK, I lied about the "not buying anything new this year"... I couldn't resist two too cute teddy bears.... The one above and the one below!

D'accord, j'avoue, je n'ai pas tenu ma résolution "je n'achète rien de nouveau cette année". Ces deux petits oursons m'ont tendu les bras et je n'ai pas résisté...

Thanks to everyone who stops by... I apologize for all the mistakes you might (will?) find both in English and French... I'm trying my best!

Wishing you all a very merry (and snowy) Christmas,

I like trying to read the French too! I did French until I was 18 at school but now it's terribly rusty.

What a beautifully decorated tree! I've always loved hearts - in fact, I felt a bit cross when they suddenly came into fashion!!

And your little teddy bears are gorgeous!!
