Just thought I'd show that I haven't completely blown off Christmas decorating.
It's true that I can't be bothered getting in the big ladder, climbing up it and getting stuff out of the jam-packed Christmas cupboard.
But I was at the Cheap-as-Chips shop the other day and picked up a couple of glittery green and gold things. Those are Australia's colours you know. Not chosen intentionally because of the colours, but just because they were there, all alone on a shelf where once there were dozens. They looked lonely. So I brought them home.
a door hanger which I attached with cable ties since I couldn't find a hook.
and this little pot filled with miscellaneous bits, a pine cone, some baubles, fake greenery (that's good, it won't wither and die) and a couple of cream coloured fake poinsettia leaves.
I like it. The whole thing is only 20cm high.
I do like glittery Christmas things
I bought the stars you'll see next from Woolworths.
Idea #1, stuff them in a jar and let them glow. The jar was too big and they all fell to the bottom and didn't look all that pretty.
So I strung them along the wall:
what do you mean you can't see them very well?
is that better? :)
I turned them on to check they worked still after I'd dropped them, then forgot to turn them off,
and spent the next couple of hours wondering why Angel was avoiding the front door.
they're battery operated, so I can turn them on and off at will.
I even put one beside my mini aquarium,
which is simply a tall skinny glass with a handful of pebbles, a sprig of plastic greenery and a glass fish.
