JUL / XMAS

Christmas at our house is far from traditional looking but definitely themed around traditions.
My family is a mix of Danish and Swedish and now with an Australian addition. Twistmas at its finest. Exotic colours, Scandinavian traditional decorations and the use of simple materials such as straw, silk paper and pine needles. Nothing new, something blue and a whole lot of special Christmas memories.
