Christmas Trees Around the World

My friend, Colleen, from Silver Threading, recently created a Christmas Trees Around the World challenge, which you can read about here.

It’s easy to take part. Basically, all you need to do is post a photograph of your tree and link back to Colleen’s post. On the 22nd of December she will create a wrap-up post displaying trees from around the world. Sounds like fun, right?

Here is my Christmas tree.

I’ve collected a plethora of tree ornaments over the years, and get a new one every year. I have baubles from around the world, including Paris, Spain, Rome, Australia, America and Singapore.

Here are some of my favourites:

Thanks for stopping by.




Mel, thank you for sharing your gorgeous tree and ornaments from your travels! You are amazing! 💗🌲🎅💗

What a beautiful tree! I love that each decoration is individual and has its own little origin story – so cute! 🙂

That is a great idea. Thanks for letting us know. It would be fun to take my students to visit that collection.

But how do those Germans like myself go about it? The tree is up from the 24th of December till the 6th of January.

Anyways you have a beautiful tree.

What a lovely festive and wonderful looking tree, Mel. Are there gifts already under it?

I’ll be joining in Colleen’s challenge when the tree goes up on Sunday 🎅

Beautiful tree! I like the unique ornaments. I normally have a big tree with tons of ornaments but this year it’s a little 4-ft tree with candy canes. Simple is all I could handle 🙂

My dear friend, Mel, joined in my 2015 Christmas Trees Around the World Challenge. Spread the peace and joy! Don’t forget to add your photos of your trees. Just like to my post at

Sounds neat. Maybe I’ll share my tree… once I have it.

What a beautiful tree (and I love your wallpaper, by the way)! I would love to participate in this challenge! Thanks to you, Mel, and to Colleen for such a wonderful idea!

Here is Melissa Barker Simpson’s tree and decorations as part of Christmas Trees Around the World..

I love this idea, and your tree, ornaments and pics look spectacular!

Beautiful tree and ornaments! We used to put up two trees (10 ft and 6 ft) but now we only have a small tabletop one. It was getting difficult to carry them up from the cellar and put them up. We do decorate the house enough so that no one even noticed we didn’t have a tree!? Believe it or not? Lol! Blessings of the season!

Lovely tree, Mel, and I like the ornaments too. I also buy ornaments when I travel – it’s nice to look at them and be reminded of trips past 🙂 Hope you’re well x
