Is it me, or is really hard to photograph one's decorated Christmas tree. Our trees look so beautiful and glorious in the flesh but I can't seem to capture it in a photograph, maybe I need to go on a how to photograph your Christmas tree course ;) We have two decorated trees, an artificial one, bought in the sale from M&S years ago, and a real one in the lounge. I have to say the artificial one is very real like and also is a fantastic shape, tall and not too wide so fits in our hallway superbly. Yet can I take a decent pretty photograph of it, not really.
The real one in the lounge is a 6 footer though looks much smaller to me, once bought, the kindly man plonked it into a tree stump and we have left it as it is. I do think Christmas trees get a little thirsty and should be in water, though Mr. Poppins says they don't have to be, I am normally almost always right ;) Anyone know how to keep one's real tree looking sprightly. We have plumed for pretty paper chains this year rather than tinsel. Myself and the two Poppins got a little sticky putting them all together, but worth it.
Well here she is small, yet perfectly formed in my opinion.

All I want for Christmas....
A gorgeous and well loved vintage wooden Father Christmas, he has a little crazing, but in my opinion makes him all the more charmful.
A beautiful crocheted Icicle kindly made for me by a lovely Lady
And on the artificial tree, I am always reminded by my first born.
And of course a Mary Poppins tree wouldn't be a decorated tree without a sparkly pink heart, kindly sent to me from a fellow blogger friend last year in a little Christmas decoration swap we did.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my newly found engagement ring. I am enjoying it all over again, 10 years old, yet feels brand new.
