I rang Ezibuy just after I started the Dottie Angel Challenge of the Upmost Kind, last year, and asked them to stop sending me their catalogues, after all why did I need the temptation?...save paper, etc.. and now I've finished the challenge, the deliveries have recommenced (I said I would only need to cancel the subscription for 1 year), so they are now bombarding me with all the Christmas....stuff.
I'm just so over tinsel. Don't even get me started on those faux pine Christmas trees in white.
Ok, maybe, there are some things that appeal...like I just can't resist the twinkly lights. Especially the starry and snowflaky ones. I don't even mind that we don't do snow Down Under in December (except for one very freaky year about 20 years ago, when I and it settled in Hobart.)
Maybe I'm just feeling a little over stimulated by all that faux colour.
Honestly, I just don't know how I feel about baubles. It's just all too much for me, I guess I'm just a simple gal, with simple ideas about tree decorating. I have no qualms about my tree being less beautifully decorated than the Jones' next door.
I like the idea of sweet, handmade, kid made, things hanging off the branches of a tree that we plucked from the side of the road, and in turn did some good for the environment by eliminating another weed. The upside is that you get that piney resiny smell from the pine, not the plastic.
