I must admit to being a bit of a real Christmas tree snob. I, ever so slightly, turned my nose up at fake trees. When at home on The Farm for Christmas we have always had a real Christmas tree. We have a special expedition and cut down our tree, sometimes a gum tree, sometimes not. This year I decided the time had come to give in and buy a fake tree. I was sick of the mess from real trees. They were also often well past their use by date by Christmas Eve.
The romance of a real tree has well and truly gone for me....
I took myself off to Big W and purchased a "Hudson". I chose it for the simple reason that it was the biggest tree they had. I have decided that fake trees are like fake diamonds. If you are going to have one, you might as well have a really big one.
So here it is.

Here are my two favorite decorations.
|Pretty Gold Bird|
|Egg With Bird, Also Very Pretty|
Farmgirl loves anything sparkly. I noticed a few decorations were missing. She had removed her favorites from the tree and chosen to decorate her bed with them.

"Because they are pretty."
I haven't had the heart to put them back on the tree...
