Christmas in July
The Christmas tree from last year. It's more of a Christmas vase, really. Maroon spray orchids that last in water for weeks, embellished with white flower hair clips purchased from a $2 shop. Which brings me to the next part. Hands down, the best $2 shop in Sydney is The Base Warehouse in Alexandria. It's the size of a football field - and once you get past the usual shelves of plastic, there are aisles of truly good things. ie. everything you need to create the festive home. There is also an abundance of stationery, gift wrapping, and hilarious dress up items. I'm such a frequent shopper here, I was awarded with a VIP card last week. I just love that place.
