Hopefully, this is just the 'Before' shot. As you can see, the theme isn't really working.

You need more blue stuff. Or ditch the old theme altogether and go for gold.

Ooh, I like gold. Can I vote for gold too? :D

No gold! I have no gold at all!

Ah well... Though you could always make things with gold foil and paper plates. ;)

Hop to it! I have some sticky-back plastic back at uni, and I'm sure I can scrounge a washing-up-liquid bottle from somewhere. I hereby teleport them to you. *teleports*

Damn, that means I have make something now.

I'm waiting for more picspam with bated breath...

Right, I'll nick some sweety wrappers from work

Are they shiny or cellophaney or both?? *iz eager*

cellophaney or foily. I have choices.

Clearly a combination of the two is required.

I might as well just stick a load of Quality Street to it.

Well, that's the plus of homemade decorations - they're always tastier than the glitzy ones in shops!

Are we talking Quality Street? Because I've mostly forgotten what exists beyond the toffee fingers...

Yes! Coconut Eclairs!!!!!!!!!!

There's a strawberry cream, but I don't touch those.

Blimey, you can keep them! (Blergh, coconut in chocolate...) I only want the toffee! And any pralines, are there any pralines? Country Fudge was always quite good, but I can't remember if that's Quality Street or Roses.

I used to love strawberry creams. Then I wasn't nine anymore.

Coconut in anything = yum (unless its Malibu, where the reverse is true, though I'm not convinced that's been anywhere near a coconut).

As I have recent experience of both Roses and Quality Street (HR at Christmas is really the place to be), I can't say there was any country fudge in either, although there definitely is a fudge of some kind. The noisette triangle in Quality Street would be your praline-style choice.

I do like the smell, and oddly enough the mooshy lump of it I once had when the only place open for snacks on holiday was some health shop. But the balance with chocolate is always weird.

I think you're right about Malibu though. (Double blergh.)

Is the noisette triangle the green one? That's quite tasty. Better than the purple one.

Yes, that's the old name for the green one.

Coconut/chocolate OTP.

Let's not have a shipper war, now...

Only because I'm going out.

And I was apparently long gone!

Gold? Never!

Yeah, it's a mixture of about three themes as I don't have enough of each. I think I need purple or light blue. But how to choose? I have nice stuff in both.

You know what colour baubles I bought last night? Light green. I can't resist the shiny stuff.

SHINY!! (With potential to be shinier!)

It needs more tinsel. Rather than the white one that's on it, or the purple one I don't have enough of, or the dark blue which didn't match or the green one that looked nicer in the shop.

Oh yeah, you can't really see the white tinsel. Though it does bulk out the branches nicely.

What didn't the dark blue match?

The purple and the light blue. What you see here is the improved version - with added owl (near the top).

You can see the white in the dark. Actually the tree looks much better in the dark, like a ghost tree. You should appricate that.

Fair enough. And ooh, owl! It's sweet! Though I fear it may become Tegan's first target...

You should appricate that.

The sheep certainly do!!

I doubt Tegan would get that high. I'd certainly know about it.

Having a target doesn't necessarily mean she gets there...

No, but I think a tree felling incident would still result.

The question that had plagued cats for all time: if a tree falls in the living room(?) and Bogwitch is around to hear it, can it be blamed on subsidence caused by swamp?

Tegan has the convenient excuse of 'but I'm disabled'!

That old chestnut. Pah! I bet she's mewing away innocently as I type, shifting your loyalties against me.

She''s asleep. Hence my incapacity.

She's clearly faking to exert her power...

She does wake up awfully easily.

Hopefully, it'll be prettier later.

It is getting there! what is the ornament in the left-hand corner that looks like a toxic cocktail? I like the mask on your wall!

Toxic coctails would be an awesome theme! Alas it's just a parcel:

Oh. The mask is from Bali.
