More Decorating

Somebody pinch me, is it seriously Thursday AND the end of November??  Time is flying on by!  Yesterday I finally got a little creative mojo flowing and worked on some more decorating.  I apologize for the cruddy photos, but you can get the gist.  Oh, and don’t mind the wood floor on the wall above the mantel (why is all I have to say to whoever did that).


I found the Merry Christmas sign at Jo-Ann’s Fabric this weekend and got a heck of a deal on it.  The ornaments hanging on the greenery are from my dear, sweet Grandma. They are antiques and I just adore them!  I pray they never get broken, I’ll cry for days if they ever do!

Somehow I’ve ended up with a  ‘country Christmas’ theme in the house this year, which I love.  I have burlap in a few different places and would have used it on the greenery in front of the TV (below) but ran out so I used some Deco Mesh that I had leftover in my craft closet.  Have you used Deco Mesh yet?? It is so easy to use!  I just love the stuff.  But I wish I had some red, it would have really spruced up the TV area.IMG_1405

OMG, I just read what artist was on the TV when I took that picture --  HANSON!!!  How do you like that, Miss Holly?  Ha ha!

So I have a little more sprucing up to do around here, will hopefully get to the store today to grab another greenery garland (I’m totally loving that stuff this year!) and then I can finish up around here.  It’s dragging on a lot longer than I want it to!

Oh, and a confession.  I didn’t get Melanie’s workout done yesterday.  No excuse, just laziness.  The good news is I’m not nearly as tired as I was a week ago, I think that part of the pregnancy is going away (yay!).  So hopefully I can get moving TODAY!

Have a great, wonderful, fantabulous day – especially if you are the winner of the ginormous Power Ball kitty!
