The Christmas Tree

Hi just a little note on my very first blog to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas.
We have put our Christmas tree up early this year. We have been buying a fresh one for the last 7 years. The needles don’t fall out so the tree looks great for the whole of the Christmas period.
I didn't think I could buy anymore Christmas decorations, I thought I had all there was to have. I like traditional trees with lots of ribbon and beads and glass baubles. BUT… this year I have gone mad on hearts and snowflakes… whats the matter with me! Anyway I have shopped with Sophie Perks Ward (a wonderful friendly and professional website selling GREENGATE, (I have shopped at a lot of places for Greengate but her online store is by far the most efficient and helpful), then I have moved on to Caroline Zoob for super sweet metal hearts, and then totally amazed by my local Garden Centre , it was a veritable winter wonderland and the whole neighbourhood knows about it! It was crushingly squashed on Sunday, I went back there again on Wednesday ….just for a tad more…. Shh enough is enough.

I must live under a rock because I don't know what Greengate is. I'm going to have to investigate it further now. :)
