Every year my wife spends hours decorating our tree with things she's made herself.

She's very arty (to match my crafty) - here's a few blown eggs for you to enjoy (hopefully).

This is two eggs glued together.

And of course, the Fairy on the top of the tree

Very nice.

We need a full tree shot

I'll give it a try - if it doesn't work then tomorrow in the daylight :thumb:.

The colours are incredible for 20 years old. Perhaps Mercedes could learn a thing or two from your Mrs in paint prep and durability.

As for the soldier, time for his Long Service and Good Conduct Medal methinks.

I salute your Mrs Sir.

Thank you TJ,

I've just enquired and I'm told it's poster paint and yacht varnish.

Here's the tree - though bad light and a grey day don't do it justice:
