Do you change colours and themes every year? My mum does this (very nicely I might add- she's very creative!) and as a result we have decorations in every colour under the sun. It's great actually, there is always great excitement to find out whats the colour this year. This year its red and purple. Very funky. Have to say I love buying them too..... :-8 Just think they are the inheritence for your kids!

Thats what I tell myself!!! My future kids will just love them!!!! This year, I'm silver and blue. Did anybody go to the new CHQ shopping mall - there are 12 Christmas trees there designed by the likes of Ciaran Sweeney, Helen McAlinden, Kevin Sharkey!!! I think I could give them a run for their money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0

There's not a lot of shops yet buy there is a Meadows & Byrne!! Happywife, CHQ is the old warehouse building down in the IFSC - used to be a wine and tobacco warehouse in the old days! Was lying idle for years but has been renovated in to a shopping mall. The owners/investors are aiming to attract retailers from the higher end of the spectrum, hence there is a Ciaran Sweeney shop, a New Blue Eriu beauty store, some rather expensive looking baby clothes shop! Not terribly exciting but.....different
