I have shamelessly stolen the title from Wonkywomble's thread from last year, and I don't even have a tree to offer yet, but I was feeling the lack of a Christmas tree pics thread so here it is. Tasteful / tasteless / real / fake / themed / big or small, I need *something* to help me feel Christmassy - please help!

    Here's mine right now:

    I've just put the lights up in the front garden and will be doing the (rather ancient!) fake tree next while the OH is at the hairdressers.  I'll post more photo's when it's complete! image

    Ha! I like a before and after shot.

    Here's mine. The tree will either go on the table or on the floor (with the table moved) depending on how tall it is.

    Who's next? My OH and kids are somewhere buying a tree but I haven't even got the stand or decorations out of the loft yet so can't promise a pic today. 

    Muddle Up that monkey puzzle is fab - looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

    I'm waiting for the dark as mine looks better then. I finally finished it but here is an earlier shot with it almost completed which I posted on another thread.
