The jokes on me ...


I did add some glitz to my garland , just a little , there may be more to come as I find it .
We got quite a bit of snow this morning , after being woken up by a mysterious fire alarm, still can not figure out why it was going off , but we had an early start because of it.
The girls enjoyed playing in the freshly fallen snow, they made this snow feature using flower buckets .


This blog is costing me money ...I am trying to out do myself , its different when you know people from all over now get a peek in my previously private home.
This is my nod to country , my kitchen rooster has made a move and I got him a little bit of glitz with some tiny jingle bells. A kind friend got me this sleigh personalized with our names, how sweet.


These are my hand made ornaments, I made them about three of four years ago , when I had a little booth at a craft shop, it didn't make me any money but it was fun to show my goodies, I will show you the rest when I find them, they are simple felt that I hand beaded , I made the heart with wings ornaments for most of my nieces and nephews one year with their initials on them.
These are my favorite , I found them at Michael's they were a pack of 3 for $1.50 , I bought all of them as you will see they are on my banister and on my outdoor wreath , they are a very thick felt, perfect colors.
This satin ribbon was perfect from the Martha Stewart line, I will probably add some glitz and a bit of color when I finally go through my Christmas boxes, there will be no more new additions this year, cross my fingers.
More jingle bells for our new horse head.
Each of my girls have their own 4ft tree in their rooms this year, no lights just ornaments , garlands and Webkinz of course. They are really getting in the spirit of Christmas.. I don't think this year would be a good year to put our tree on the main floor , it most likely would not survive, an especially frisky puppy, and two two year olds, so it will also like the other two trees grace a bedroom , that's mine, we did that once when our little one was a baby , it made for easier days, we even had Christmas morning in our bedroom , in bed it was very nice. Think outside the box.

You are out doing yourself! Can you believe that I am feeling guilty because I have barely started to decorate? It's not even December yet!

Please post the girl's trees when they are done with them. I will send you a pic of my girls' tree after it goes up. I went to K Mart this morning and bought them a bunch of Martha Stewart ornaments and garlands for their tree and went to Michael's for some gingham ribbon to make bows. It was all on sale which makes it O.K., right?

I know what you mean about trying to out do yourself! I totally understand! I haven't done my banister yet, so thanks for the ideas and I hope you don't mind if I copy you! :) Happy decorating!

I can only imagine what the full effect of that railing must look like...

I have to say, with that fantastically tall ceiling in your living room, it would take more than a puppy to keep me from putting up one amazon of a tree in there!! You must be a very practical person!!
