I started a new job this week, so there has been early mornings, early nights, and a lack of blogging. I do take my Christmas hat off, to those who work and blog often. So, I was very happy to wake up Saturday morning and have the day to myself. I had my heart set on buying a (real) Christmas tree, and some decorations. I did just this!
I bought the tree from Homebase, as well as some decorations. This is the first year, in a long while, we have got a real tree. There were so many cute, smaller trees, and we some how decided upon this one. It's cute and a little tubby! All the decorations, lights, are from; Asda, Matalan, Sainsburys, Home Bargins, and Homebase.
The Christmas trees in the shops, are so perfectly decorated and each bobble is placed with thought. My technique, is to just place them here, there and every where! I like a tree that has a little character! There is a wonderful feature in YOU magazine today, with craft blogger, Davina Drummond's unique and easy to make decorations. I wish I had some crafty materials in the house, so I could have a go myself this Sunday. I will have to do this though, I'm forever reading crafty posts (Erica's), and being inspired, so watch this space. Do you have your Christmas tree up yet?
