The summer seemed to be over in the blink of an eye, and it is weird to think about Christmas already. Yet, as autumn turns the leaves gold and the first cold invites you to get out your warmer, softer, cozier clothes, while the sunset is clouded with purple and silver and we rediscover comforting hot drinks and warm homes, our minds already fly to the time when we’re going to pull out the tree and decorate it for the best Christmas ever.
The charm of Christmas decorations has an ancient and precious tradition. Infinitely fragile, beautiful trinkets, which we were scared to break by just looking at them as children, still drew us in with their fascinating precious jewels.
Even today, as the Christmas spirit starts to spread again, I am instantly reminded of its enchanting decorations. I still have some, which have miraculously escaped time, being hit and moving house, and are enclosed in an overstuffed suitcase, just like a precious treasure. Moreover, every year I like to renew my tree, but always keeping tradition and that slightly old-fashioned taste in mind, which calls to mind past Christmases and stories lost to time.
Online Christmas decorations will soon satisfy this desire to renew and decorate the tree, offering the possibility of targeted and well-structured research. I have already decided what I will give as presents next Christmas: high quality, exclusive and beautiful Christmas items found online, handmade with traditional techniques and painted with the taste and care of times gone by.
Below is a selection of 10 Christmas tree decorations that you can find on holyart.co.uk
