Into the Wild with Kinfolk

November 28, 2012

We’ll very likely be doing our annual family trek to the tree farm this weekend and I’m actually really excited about getting our house decorated for Christmas! I wasn’t so sure that I would be after decorating at the shop (and un-decorating then redecorating again…but I’ll fill you in more on that at a later date ;) and being surrounded by ornaments so early in the season. But I took the dog for a walk a couple of nights ago and the crisp chill, sparkling lights and smell of woodsmoke in the air were the perfect combination to get me in the holiday spirit all over again. Do you get a fresh tree each year like we do? These outdoorsy images I found over at Kinfolk made me  think I could almost smell the fresh-cut scent of pine…

Whether it be the real deal or artificial, it doesn’t quite feel like Christmas around here until the tree is up. My kids are excited about everything to do with the holidays, especially getting started on our advent calendar. I’ll be sure to post some pictures and a list of the activity notes that I’ll be tucking into each day. Hope your week is going well!

There is nothing like the smell of woodsmoke to get me feeling festive, reminds me of the open fireplace where my stocking used to hang when I was a kid! These shots from Kinfolk also remind me of where I grew up in the Cotswolds – I love it there.

I switched to a fake tree a couple of years ago and I love it! Prelit and no mess… although I do miss the smell. So, instead, I always try and bring some branches inside to display. It’s full on decorating mode at our house. Love it! :) Have fun on your tree hunt Lily!

I tried to convince the hubby to go fake when we first got married but have to admit I’m happy now that he stood his ground for the real deal! Although, I don’t enjoy vacuuming spider’s webs out of every corner by Boxing Day :) Our tree hunt might have to wait until next weekend…there’s a whole lot of rain in the forecast!
