O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree!




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? 

Happy December!

  5. I also take my santa hat off to the bloggers and workers of the world! It is darn impressive! I die after work in front of Netflix! Anyway, enough about me! New Job?! Congratulations Christina! That's amazing. I hope you love it and the early mornings get a bit easier- it's horrible starting full time in the winter- so much harder to get up!

  18. Oh it's so pretty! I can't wait to get a Christmas tree and decorate it. We always have a real one as they are so much nicer - they smell amazing and look great. We don't put ours up until a week after my sister's Birthday though so not til 19th/20th Dec! But I am celebrating already by eating lots of Christmas chocolates and watching Christmas films :)

  19. your Christmas tree looks super cute! There's something about a real Christmas tree. I think its the journey of going and picking it out yourself and the smell of them <3 Hope you've been enjoying your new job lovely! and well done :) x x

  20. Congratz on the new job! Yes it is hectic working and blogging at the same time but worth it.

    Love the tree pics. I'm not a big tree person, but my Nan recently came to visit (and she's a traditional type) and she went out and bought me a mini tree home, and made me decorate it. Now it sits in the corner of my living room, and it actually brings a smile to my face.
