So do I Olivia, I got some beautiful glass birds a few years ago from the National Trust. And last year I got some of those tiny pegs with Christmas stars on, to peg all the cards to hanging ribbons.

I am a bit obsessed with decorations.

I just typed 'glass drops' into eBay and it came up with chandalier drops...some of the ones that look like long raindrops are lovely, and are v similar to the things I have on my tree!

( may need to buy some) grin

Next have some great deep red old fashioned looking glass ones for £2 each (only seem to sell in packs of 6 online). Look like ones I got in Liberty a few years ago. Garden centres often good for different good quality decorations at reasonable prices

Sainsburys have some Nordic style decorations this year that look like they might have come from somewhere a bit posher.

Ikea is worth a look, I quite like wilkinsons selection this year too.

Wilkinsons had some lovely ones, woodland animals and baubles in lovely autumny shades. Would love to junk my mish mash tree and have a lovely tree covered in foxes and owls and squirrels!
