Blogmas - Advent Day 22

 


My latest little acquisition, another little tree ... even smaller than my fake one and beautiful in its realness.  I decided to treat myself when I fell in love with it's hat, scarf and little strung mittens, I loved it so much that I sent one to my Mum too.  

I got it from a company called Bloom and Wild and it's a letterbox tree.  I had great fun setting it all up and fluffing it back into tree shape, following the instructions stage by stage.  It can go into a slightly larger pot and live outdoors as soon as it has done it's Christmas duty.


Day 22 and I have a beautifully scented candle, it really is a lovely scent.

  1. That little tree is beautiful. I think Bloom & Wild are one of the nicest home delivery companies for flowers.

    1. I was surprised to get such super quick delivery at this time of year. I ordered one day and it arrived the next. 😃

  2. I sent a B&W tree to my cousin last Christmas. They are a very reliable company.

    1. I think I'm slowly surfacing from a very dark place. It's been a tough couple of months.

    1. It's called 'The Winter Walks' tree, hence it wearing it's hat, scarf and gloves. 😄🎄

  5. I've really enjoyed your daily posts this month. It was fun seeing what your advent calendars would surprise you with each day. I'm glad you are recovering - all be it slowly. I want to wish you a Merry Christmas from this side of the pond and I'm looking forward to your new challenge in the new year. Jo in Wisconsin.

  6. That tree is so sweet! Does it have that great evergreen scent? Will you keep it alive and use it each year? Or decorate it out in the garden? Such a great purchase!

    1. Only a faint scent. Oh yes I will try my hardest to keep it alive. Hopefully it can come back indoors next year for a week or two, it would be a bit lost decorated in the garden, it's only a foot tall 😃🎄🎄

  7. I saw that little tree on Bloom and Wild's website and was very tempted. It's gorgeous. Maybe next year I will be in a position to buy one 😁

    1. I've been very generous with myself this Christmas, I just had to have it. I hope next year you are, perhaps while you are on this little lucky streak you should splash out on a Christmas lottery ticket. 😀

    2. Sue, I think you are right...I've been out this morning and bought a lucky dip on the lottery! I'll let you know if I win ;)

    3. I'll be your new best friend if you win ;-)

  8. Hi Sue, I've been reading your blogs for around 18 months and I just want to say how much I enjoy them, I'm looking at around 25 years until retirement and I feel like I'm getting so much advice as well as hints and tips from your posts that when (if) we do make it, we will be able to live a comfortable life by making preparations early enough.
    Have a lovely Christmas, and thank you for always giving me a few minutes of pleasure each day during December.

    1. What a lovely comment, thank you. I hope in a small way I can help you pick up good habits. Once they become second nature it makes for a simple but cheap and happy life ... and makes even splurging on miniature Christmas trees possible 😄🎄

      I think you might enjoy my no spend year next year ... almost as much as me.
