I have SOOOOO been in the weeds.
At last count I painted 35 Custom Pet Portraits for this Holiday Season.I LOVED IT…BUT It was all-consuming and little else got done…all good..they have all been shipped and with the exception of one PORTRAIT that was LOST IN THE MAIL…all is well.
Yes, one got lost! I taped two boxes together and someone at the post office separated the two boxes leaving one box with NO ADDRESS ON IT! why why why!!!!
ANYWAY…I DO BELIEVE THAT LILY WILL BE FOUND AND NOW I AM CATCHING UP WITH CHRISTMAS!!! Funny, we got the tree and the house decorated earlier than ever this year…yet I still feel so behind…It just does not feel like Christmas…OUR weather is so warm for this time of year…but in fact I am really pretty caught up…so it does LOOK like Christmas!
Anyway…I wanted to share the Living room decorations with you. I have been so swamped I never showed you the New Paint color…I painted the living room Sherwinn Williams “Steamed Milk”(SAME AS THE UPSTAIRS AND DOWNSTAIRS HALL) …and I brought the curtains from the OTHER living room in here…
I don’t even think I showed your The table and chairs we got for our anniversary (21 years!)!!!
I think after the first of the year I want to do some more switching around…but for now here is the tree and the decorations…
I kept it simple this year …the vines, the christmas card photos and just a few things out…
HANDS DOWN….MY FAVORITE DECORATIONS ARE OUR CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS.
MY MOM DID AMAZING NEEDLEPOINT AND SHE DID A STOCKING FOR TATE WHEN HE WAS A BABY AND THEN FOR PHOEBE AND COOPER WHEN I WAS PREGNANT…SHE DID MINE A FEW YEARS LATER…BUT, SADLY SHE WAS UNABLE TO FINISH DAMON’S… BUT HE GETS THE VERY SPECIAL “TIGGER” STOCKING WHICH WAS THE FIRST STOCKING WE BOUGHT WHEN TATE WAS BORN…..
TATE COMES HOME TOMORROW FOR CHRISTMAS BREAK!!!!!!!!! WAHOO!!!!
COME BACK TOMORROW FOR A GREAT GIVEAWAY!!!
I PROMISE NOT TO MISS A DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS …WE ARE GOING TO MAKE UP FOR LOST TIME!!! I HOPE ALL OF YOU ARE GETTING IN THE SPIRIT!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS…BRING ON THE SILLINESS!!!
