Christmas gets glam

Freedom's glitzy Christmas
Have you noticed? All the baubles are adorned with feathers or sparkly gems, there are diamante letters, crystal drops with beads and shimmery tassles, jewellery-like decorations, bird motif after bird motif and glitter on EVERYTHING. And that's just Freedom! I actually got a little overwhelmed in Myer's Christmas section - it was like a glitter factory had exploded. And there is no end to the choice of colours - if you wanted to skip the green and red and go for a purple and gold Chrissy this year, you won't have to look too far like you might have a few years ago.
But with so much tizz and glitz, it's enough to make you want to go all traditional. Almost. I'll pretty much stick to a white theme with a bit of silver, blue and neutral thrown in for good measure, but I think I'm going to have to make do with stuff collected from year's past when I decorate my place on Thursday (we've always done the German tradition of setting up on the 6th - St Nick's birthday!). It's just all too much for me this year!! The only thing I've bought were my little nutcrackers (see post below) and this very beautiful wreath for my front door from Seaweed and Sand.

Shell wreath, $59.95, Seeweed & Sand

Maybe next year I'll get one of those stick Chrissy trees from My Island Home and go a beachy theme. So, what are your Chrissy decorating plans?
