ahhh the smell of Christmas!

.

Its that time of the year again...when one poor tree gets to live with us for a few weeks.

off we troddled to the local garden centre to select the specimen...
Its quite a tricky operation, because Im very fussy about the shape. But, then i start feeling sorry for all the odd looking wonky trees that didnt get picked. In other walks of life I'd like to chose the ugly one, but when it comes to Crimbo trees, I have to be ruthless.
we opted for a potted tree, and a fairly small one this year. The pot is massive and very heavy, and even though that tree is about the same height as me, it nearly didnt fit into the car. {or rather Nao almost didnt fit into the car}

I hope to get the chance to finish the decs this week, so I'll show you our {hopefully} twinkly flat.
BUT, we'll actually be camping in our van on the Isle of Wight this christmas! just for a few nights...

p.s. Dont forget our second RUST Jewellery Open Day is this saturday!!
