Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year!

My Christmas tree from Eco Christmas Trees I expect that most of you will be relaxing with your friends and family for the next few weeks and thus too busy to read my daily ramblings. So from today I’m going to be taking a blogging break for the holidays and returning in January 2011.  The […]

HOT Chat: Anna Brockhurst from Eco Christmas Trees

It’s fitting that the last HOT Chat for the year is a Christmas-themed one. I found out about Eco Christmas Trees via Twitter and was immediately captured by the idea of  having a real live Christmas tree in my home, without the waste that goes into cutting down a tree and then disposing of it […]
