Christmas Decorations

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well.  As December is just around the corner and all those Christmas trees will be going up soon.  I have been getting some new decorations for our tree.  We have lots of decorations in our loft already so we don't really need any more, but things change, colours change and some decorations get cuter every year.

I can't wait to put our tree up, as we have just got a new one from B&Q. Our old one was a 6ft tree, but it was rather wide around the bottom. Our previous house had lower ceilings to our new house, which we moved into last February, where as this house has quite tall ceilings, so we have brought a 7ft one and it's alot slimmer too.

Here is our new tree, which we got on offer at £35.00 reduced from £50.00.

We will use alot of our old decorations, but it's always nice to get some new things now and then.  As you all know i like to find bargains, and don't like spending too much on something that's only going to come out once a year, but at the same time they have to look nice.

Below are some things i have bought over the past weeks, maybe a month.  I'm really liking the Nordic/Fair isle Christmas theme, so i have tried to incorporate some into our decor this year. The Red, Greens and whites will be going on our new tree in our Living Room.

Until next time
