We had our first little bit of the white stuff this weekend, right after Dave out up the Christmas lights! Every year, it seems to work out that way :) Just a little. The hens went out and the 2 new girls were like "what the heck is this new stuff on the ground???" Funny...
I found a like-new red polar fleece big shirt, nice and toasty for work. We also found a nice, big storage bag for our fake tree. With allergies we find it works much better for our breathing. While I LOVE fresh trees, I'm wheezing by day 3 :( I also found a few holidays goodies things, cute and cheap! Man the stores are really stocked this year with fun holiday stuff, may of it brand new-
A little country elf, I just had to!$4.00, still had the original price tag on!
I love the little gingerbread girl
I got the new Santa on the bottom
I like the little tree and snowman together, even better for $2.00! I took lace off the tree base, I like the wood better.
Cute little snowman for a buck, he makes me smile sitting on my kitchen window, I LOVE snow, bring it on!
We'll be putting up our tree this weekend. I never like to get too saturated with Christmas stuff too early, it's just too commercialized. But I do start putting up winter things in early December. I go for a more natural look. I leave these "generic" things up until the end of January. Christmas stuff comes down on New Year's Day or so. It more restful on the eyes that way, IMO. Here's a little tour of some of my winter holiday goodies scattered thru the house-
Our front entry way
A little wreath I like to hang above our bed
On our bedroom dresser for a little winter color
Top of our high boy. The antlers with fur remind me of reindeer. I got it out thrifting a few years back
I found the wood star thrifting and added the berries
A little quilt I love!
A saw a cute wreath at Target the other day- just covered with yarn! I should have taken a photo. I can do THAT!!! I did take some pics of these-
A cute idea to make, at Hobby Lobby. You'd just need enough plates
I want this lamp at Hobby Lobby! Maybe next time I get their 40% off coupon :)
Hubby's New Photography Blog-
My husband Dave has been really growing his photography skills the last few years. He's selling prints and calendars to friends and co-workers. He recently decided to take the plunge with blogging! I helped him get a basic set up. Drop by and checkout his stuff! Everyday Art in Boise
