Blabbering TreesSince Anthony asked whether I had room for a Christmas tree, I thought I'd blog about that next.
Last year we had a real tree. I was so excited - it was my first real tree ever! Getting rid of it afterwards was not so fun.
This year I thought I'd like a vintage aluminium tree to complement my retro passions. After a fruitless search (there are LOADS in America though), I've started to consider a white tree. I've never really fancied white Christmas trees but my quest for an aluminium tree has turned me onto them as they have a similar look. PLUS it would really suit my winter wonderland theme.
I have a bit of space between the television and the fish tank - a perfect space for this tree I found from B & Q (I couldn't get a larger image to show here).

It's a predecorated and prelit popup tree which means if I fancy a more traditional tree in future, I could just whack this one out in another room. The 'popup' factor indicates that it might be quite easy to store. It also looks quite thin which I hope will keep the area from looking crowded. However, I don't think I'll be able to hang my pre-existing baubles on this tree which would be sad (more on them later).
This bauble wreath would also suit my theme but I'm undecided as yet. What do you think?
I think I'm gonna have to head off to my local B&Q this weekend for a closer look.
