Christmas Inspiration 2013

Here is some Christmas inspiration for ya....

These are some of the vignettes and tables I did last year...Do you know what you are doing this year?

I am already planning, and lighting some new trees...because, get ready for this.

I am not doing one tree in my living room....I am doing at least 3! (maybe 4...I haven't decided yet)

All in a rustic, woodland theme again...but this time I am going to use some store bought items and some naturals from my garden on all 3 trees grouped in a huge living room vignette. I have rusty crab pots, metal baskets, large icicle branches and 3 beautiful skinny woodland trees.

Cross your fingers for me, because if it fails...I'll be scrambling!

and since my sister Janine is doing her very first hosting of Thanksgiving at HER house...(chorus of angels) I don't have to cook!

I am looking forward to a year off....


 I can't wait to show you all the wonderful things I have picked up...I have been working on completing my kitchen window restoration project....I had a little fail with the primer bleeding thru my paint, so that set me back a couple of days....grrrrr, I was mad. I even went as far as to send a mad email to the paint company support center....yeah! Having to sand off all my hard work, then practically start over on one window? Yeah they heard from me.

I was like Jackie Gleason....To The Moon Alice!

I apologize for the older pics but just look....this was before my kitchen updated windows were done....or my Dining Room.

Wow a lot has changed and I can't wait to share it! I have a better camera this year, better light, a few pointers on taking photos....

I might even iron a tablecloth or two....and anybody that knows me....knows I have had the same iron for 20 years simply because it's only been times.
 We are going to push to get a lot farther this weekend with the last window to hopefully have them done by next weekend...(Crossing my fingers)

 Stay tuned, because the best Holiday of the year is coming up and I can't wait to share it
