Countdown to Christmas: Day 3

Tonight festive photo is of this year's christmas tree...  we always have an artificial tree - we have pets so this is preferable to a real tree (& yes I prefer an artificial tree because they're more symmetrical! lol)

This tree was a dream to assemble - 3 separate pieces with lights attached! ho ho ho  We haven't had one like this before - but we will from now on! lol no more fighting with the lights, untangling them (even though we are very neat at putting them away each year) and trying to make them evenly spread around the tree... oh yes a pre-lit tree! a revelation! lol

On the tree are all kinds of ornaments - it has a sparkly woodland theme - some old, some new... lots of dark wood, twig bundles and sparkle... soft gold baubles, white & clear baubles, pine cones, berries, stag heads (there had to be stag heads), acorns, crowns, stars, mushrooms - there's even a squirrel!

Its a lot of fun to decorate the tree - hard work but worth it!


  1. Ours won't go up till about 15th - would be even later if I had my way!!! Love Christmas but hate the palaver of the tree! Agree re artificial tho ' our cats used to climb when we had a real one!

  2. this is one of the most beautiful trees I've seen!

  3. The tree looks beautiful ! Sounds like a breeze to put up ! Ali

  4. Your tree looks beautiful & the idea of a pre-lit one sounds the best! I put ours up today, it's real & lopsided LOL!


  5. Your tree looks fab - I feel better now as ours went up at the weekend too!
