Coming Saturday it's exactly 4 weeks before Christmas (and my sister's birthday). So time to check what kind of Christmas decoration we're going to use this time.
I don't like a real tree, as it sheds needles - and anyway, we wouldn't be able to pick one up on foot or by bike. The artificial ones are just - artificial. So we like to go for something which is beautiful to the eye. Last year during our trip to Copenhagen (Denmark) we saw nice decorations, but as we only had hand-luggage we couldn't bring it home.
This afternoon we've been in some shops, but all the decorations looked rather trashy. Hopefully we'll be able to find something in the DIY shop tomorrow. We have an antique stable with (very) old figurines, but that's not near enough. We've also filled some glass containers with colored balls. We have reindeer from Alaska, but something is still lacking. A nice wooden construction in which you can attach balls and figurines, that'd be great (that's what we saw in Copenhagen). But up to now we haven't come across one.
This is kind of what I'd like. I found this picture on the net but alas, they don't sell these in Dendermonde!
If we don't find something similar, we have to go to the floral shop, to buy a nice decoration there. You'd only use it once, though. We'll see what tomorrow brings.
