Christmas decorations

Some of the few belongings we brought with us were two strings of fairy lights and an IKEA star. I knew I would want something shiny at Christmas time.

I asked Andrew to help me cut a branch off a large pine tree that is in our yard, and stood it up in an old powdered milk can with some sand.

I bought some pretty beaded garland at the Christmas Fair last weekend.

And this afternoon I made 5 Christmas stockings out of a Maasai shuka and some left over kitenge.

I am very pleased with them!!

Now I just need to buy some Christmas gifts to go under the tree and in the stockings.


  1. How lovely! Looking very festive xx
