My grandiose plans did not come to fruition. In the back of my mind, I knew they wouldn't, but a girl can dream, right? I had really hoped to finish my decorating on Sunday. I came kind of close, but the best laid plans of mice and men . . . sigh. Now it's Wednesday evening and it still is not quite done. Every evening this week I've had other things to do. Oh, how that day job gets in the way!
Half the lights on a 3 foot tree have decided to go out. Of course they are a strand I silicone-dipped a few years ago, so off to Home Depot to buy silicone. I will have to un-decorate at least half the tree to either find the problem or to add a new strand (once I find the time to dip them). I also dropped two of my vintage ornaments and they did not survive the crash to the hard wood floor. Why couldn't new ones have fallen off? Murphy's law, I suppose.
My decorating style is very eclectic. Here's one of my cheesy plastic Santas that brings a smile to my face.
Last night was hooking with Katie of Kidl de Divey Woolens. Here's Valerie working on her latest rug.
Melissa finishing up a Christmas present.
It's for her mom and dad and the date is the year they were married. I believe this in an Anne Nichols pattern.
The ever-sweet Katie . . .
. . . working on her daughter's Christmas gift. Katie is speed-hooker. I joked that she probably started it on Sunday.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Happy hump day!
