Well I know I'm havin fun tryin to get this place in ship shape. There's just something about Christmas that says ...... decorations are nice, food is nice, shopping is fun, but CLEAN that darn house first! I have never seen so many dustbunnies in one place before I began moving things from here to there to make room for the red and green!
C'mon in and take a look.
C'mon don't be shy..........
I had her in my hands to pack away for the holidays and then thought "Why oh why would I put her up. An adorable little school girl just watching my every move and getting oh so excited
An uh wait a minute there Mister Toby. You BETTER watch out. Someone is looking at you
Oh and ya better not pout. I can see I almost caught you and your bad self in the act of wanting to play with some toys that do not belong to you. Don't try to deny it mister. Momma wasn't born yesterday ya know.
This bedspread belonged to our angel watching over us, Miz Pearl my MIL and this is the first Christmas I've used it. We've had it packed away in the cedar chest, but I think it looks so pretty for the holidays
I love these stained glass Cardinal pieces my daughter Shari got me two years in a row. She found them at the hospital gift shop but she works at a different hospital now. Darn the luck.........
And I smile when I look at all the Christmas dishes lined up on the dining room shelves like little red soldiers
I made these cute little trees out of paper cones and toilet paper rolls I had been saving for some unknown reason. Wish my feeble mind could give due credit to the creative gal who first made trees like this. I think it looks like a little cone forrest with the little disheveled carrolers wandering throughout
This is a couple of the fabric hearts I told you about a few months ago that I made with all sorts of bling and glam embelishments and I have them hung on pine garland over the windows
The mirror in our bedroom needed a little red sprucing up don't ya think
And ditto for my always cluttered dresser with this raggedy ole pair of favorites
And last but not least our tree which is ALMOST finished. I miss getting a real tree this year, but I said last year.......NO MORE NEEDLES in my vacuum!
But I do have one more thing I'm making for this tree and shhhhhhhh........it is a surprise I will post about in a few days! I think you'll like it.
Remember me telling 'yall about disassembling all my wallpaper books? Right..well I made these loopy thingies from the heavy pages between the samples and I'm lovin the natural look
And not exactly a Christmas look here, but this little shabby chic apron I made for my Granddaughter Emily who has a birthday and will be 20 years old on the 17th. Yep I tell you girls, from Dec. 13 to Jan. 23 we have 9...count 'em NINE birthdays in our immediate family. Whew!!! Makes me dizzy thinking about it
Hey hope you all have a fun week decorating and don't let PITA catch you banging and swatting those bunnies!! mizmollye
