Every year I get a real tree and treat myself to soon new decs. This year I've been crafting my decs out of felt and crochet.
This little polar bear is one of my favourite decs I've made this year. Its not easy to see in this photo but she has lots of beads and sequins on her back. It was a idea to make these to sell but took way to long to make to be cost effective so this little lonely lady is all mine and quite happy on my eclectic tree.
This like most things it didn't go to plan. When I got the box of Christmas decs down and found all the lovely things me and my partner Andy had bought together before he died.
We went for a quality street theme and our tree was a riot of colour.
I couldn't help myself and so out when my idea to be tasteful and I loaded up the tree with everything.
I even managed to fit the big baubles we bought at a craft fair at castle Howard.
Now if I can only keep the cats off it till Christmas :)
