Some Christmas

I wish I could say I'm done decorating for Christmas but I'm not. But here's what is done.


The magazine I stole the ideas from had cloves on the oranges, but I ran out of time, Still got lots of compliments on it tho. And yes beside it are my very own dollar tree hurricanes.

Christmas Babies

What a long night. But our Abby had 6 black lab puppies last night.
No real complications, all healthy.
We had hoped one would look like momma, but no all look like dad.

Favorite Things..

These are a few of my Favorite Things...

#10 Woolite Dark - Love it, couldn't bring myselft to spend the money to try it, but got it from a friend, and so glad I did. I have really harsh water and it makes a big difference. My dark clothes are lasting longer.
#9 Bertolli - Chicken and Spinach - So glad it finally came down in price. Can't get enough of it.
#8 Hormel Pork Asu + Mahatma Yellow Rice - My Kids LOVE this and it's so easy. Dinner is ready in 15 mins. I fixed this for a dinner party, everyone asked me how to make it, I said "4mins in the microwave" no one believed me.

#7 Equate Eye Makeup Remover - I'm not one for buying alot of beauty products but boy am I glad I invested in this. It always took me forever to take off my eye makeup before, and soap always burned my eyes. This stuff works heavenly.
#6 Command Hooks - I was skeptical about how much weight they could actually hold. Bought them - tryed them- Can't brag enough about them. I should never have to put another hole in my wall ever again.
#5 Dobie Scrubbing Pads - Why are more people not using these. TRY IT!
#4 Walmart Brand Almond Bars - My new favorite snack, I know there is a ton of sugar in it but it is sooo good.
#3 Bones - Love that silly show. My new "X-Files"
#2 Cherry Cream Slush from Sonic - No matter how crappy the day, this always makes it better.

AND My #1 FAVORITE THING...........

My Hubby and Kids! OF COURSE, WHAT ELSE!  They are PRICELESS!

Jewelry Storage

Old curtain rod, cut down to the size I needed.
Makes it so easy to find the right bracelet.
Hand-me-down curtain rod.

Will be painting the frame, just haven't decided on a color yet.

More Fall

Wish I had some before pictures. Should have waited till I got the mums
before I took a picture of these but I was so excited I couldn't wait.

Got this idea from someone else online. I love the idea of a square wreath.
It is different and unusual. Not completely happy with the bow yet
and I might add more to it, give it some more bling.
Tally sofar
Frame -  Thrift Store - $.99
4 leaf garlands from Dollar Tree - $4
Yellow ribbon - Walmart - $1.99
(painted the dots on by hand)
