I am all over the Christmas spirit this year. For me, it's the first time in the past few years that I've really been able to participate in the festivities and enjoy everything, so I'm making the most of it! I've bought my Santa slippers, my blood is 80% Starbucks Christmas coffee (Gingerbread mostly..nom) and the tree is up. I didn't write a post about our tree last year but I bought some quirky decorations this year and a few people have asked about them, so here they are!
(The first three are Paperchase decorations and are three for two in Arnotts)
That's right, it's a Flamingo. What your tree is probably missing. What has this got to do with Christmas, you may ask? Pretty sure there was a Flamingo present in the manger. Just saying.
Santa IS my hero, though. Look at him there, with his cape. Awesome.
Super glitzy white deer.

These guys are just a big box set of baubles (available in different colours) from Penneys. Super cheap but look how glisten-y!
These aren't new but are my favourites so I thought I'd pop them up anyway. That's a mini snowman snowglobe from my sister, a special couples decoration from my sister-in-law and a little pig-fairy from my mum.
Ah look at her there, in all her tacky glory.
Have you found any cute/quirky decorations anywhere or are you steadfastly avoiding all things tacky?
