tree #2

As I mentioned before Mr Meany (aka my husband to be!!) wouldn't buy me a 2nd Christmas tree for my dining room as he had spent more than he planned to on our main one....well....yesterday B&Q reduced all their remaining trees (£5 for the same one we bought last week!!) so I brought home a £3 bargain...

And this morning I was finally able to get my children type decs out and put them on the tree.I let the boys decorate(well boy, the eldest, sorry I'm just not the kind of momma who can relax with 20 trillion ornaments on one branch lol!!).

If I had paid full whack for the tree I'd have been a bit disappointed as it has a naked bit in the middle which we have tried to disguise.

I love my decs on this tree, homemade by some boy or other :), their Babys 1st Christmas baubles, decorations with their names on - if anyone knows where I can get one that says Reuben please let me know!!

And Noddy crackers - how festive :)

Aw it looks lovely Claire! Haven't seen any Reuben ones about, but I'm sure you could use a glitter pen on an ordinary bauble if you cant find one?
I am the same with the tree - I can tell if people have moved things and have to fix it!
p.s thankyou for the housey pic comment. I hope this year I shall get you for a swap or vice versa. Would love to send goodies to you!

That looks so sweet Dolly D.... what a wonderful name Reuben is ... can you use rub on transfers on a bauble to get the effect you want?

Have a wonderful Christmas!

What a perfect second tree! My bf's child is called Reuben, and I've always thought it's a fabulous name. But I also know from experience that it's hard to find named items for a Reuben! x
