I am late on Christmas decorating. So, I wanted to post my last year Garland that exploded into something I thought was breath taking. It definitely stood out.
I know I am weird, but with a two year old, I still do not feel safe with a fire going or fingers around the screen, so I put furniture in front of it.

Hope you will all enjoy this hours upon hours idea of mine. I actually purchased this wall tin at Tuesday Morning, knowing I needed something that shouted, "Look at Me!" I am all about statements and I want everyone's eyes to have something to look at from floor to ceiling. I couldn't sleep one night, obsessed with this project. I cut a piece of cardboard, cut into four pieces and wired over 100 pine cones (glue gun would not work to make this an easier project). Anyway, I hot glued the cardboard pieces to the tin and purchased clear wire to strengthen the hold of the four pieces pinecone cardboard. Added wispies and magnolia leaves and Looky There, a piece of art! I love it!

Christmas Decorating to Come...........

Happy Holidays Everyone,
Thanks to all of you who came by one of the shows this weekend. All of the shopping definitely got me in the mood to decorate for Christmas. With all of the makings of the wreaths, decorating at the house has been put on the back burner. This week is my goal to have this house decorated for Christmas. Stay tuned for the beautiful results.
I personally wanted to thank Dara Albert with Once Upon a Cottage at for allowing us to come and invade her beautifully CLEAN house. I think this is the first time she has allowed people to wear shoes inside, but that is why her house looks sparkling new. And a thanks to all of the vendors who participated in the show!
