Quirky Christmas: Carolyn Donnelly Eclectic Collection

Christmas is just around the corner which means it's time to dig out the decorations, tackle the tree, and layer on the lights.

I happened to stroll into Dunnes Stores a couple of weeks ago, and came across the most unusual range of Christmas tree decorations. If you love quirky pieces and old fashioned baubles, the Carolyn Donnelly Eclectic range would be right up your festive street.

Pictured above are the softer decorations, they remind me of the type you make in primary school out of felt and sequins. The little snowman in the second row is a personal favourite!

The baubles have a more vintage feel, painted in bright colours and extremely detailed. They would pop against a luscious green tree.

This excited looking pig was one of my favourites, I went back today and it's sold out so I am a bit disappointed that I didn't buy it at the time; it would certainly be a talking point! I did however manage to get my mitts on another of my favourites, the cat pushing a kitten in a trolley. Nothing says Christmas like a festive kitty. There were so many others that I would have loved, but I would have spent a small fortune had I bought them all.

My mum took a fancy to the Christmas pudding, which also has a beaded string, the Robin, and one of the paper mache birds. They are affordable at £4 each, but it's hard to pick just a few. It's safe to say our tree will be looking rather unusal this year, and I cannot wait!
