Our Christmas tree is looking far too sparse. So sparse it could be mistaken for a deliberate attempt at stylishness, which I think is a shame this time of the year when you can get away with so much more.
Last year we had these chaps as our tree topper. This year... any suggestions? While I was searching for inspiration (OK, while I was procrastinating about doing my tax return) I found some truly excellent festive decor ideas.
Ugly Houses blog. Perhaps our tree isn't so sparse after all.
scariest Christmas bauble ever. Apparently not. Get your handmade festive foetal twins from Etsy.
'Hangover Santa' bauble.
personalised decorations. Just me?
This, on the other hand, from the same stable... an 80s miserablist indy themed tree? (That is the theme, right?) Nice.
And with that, I'm off to find something even better than Run DMC for our Christmas tree, finish my shopping and stop putting off the tax return. Do have a marvellous one, and don't forget to share the kitschest thing in your home on the Facebook page for the chance to win a lava lamp worth £100. And I'd love to see your Christmas decorations too.
Meanwhile, merry festivities! See you back here on 6 January, bright and early.
