Christmas decoration at work

Standard

Hi,

 

I just wanted to share with you my Christmas decoration. Work is the place where I want to feel good. That’s why I decided to decorate my room as well.

I decided for yellow to add a bit of sun during these long, dark days.

I put everything in a glass vase: glossy stones, Christmas lights, shiny twig with crystals and two angels…
