My poor husband hates putting lights on the house, could this be why?
No no this isn't him. It turns out this was a real display in someones front yard. Apparently after 2 days and many close calls with traffic accidents, the police told him he had to take it down. In fact the police almost wrecked when they drove by.
I have to admit, this guy was pretty creative. It looks real to me!
Actually my husband did manage to put up a few lights on the house and I am happy to report there were no injuries.
I have been busy decking the halls, walls, tables and whatever else might need a splash of Christmas Cheer around here. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
Great, looks like my tree is leaning to the right a little, oh just tilt your head and I think it will look straight. Yes there ah, how nice. Ooh, neck locked up on second thought just close your eyes and imagine what the tree looks like!
I wish I had a decent camera because the lights are so much prettier in person! Don't make a crack about my penguins, doesn't everyone have a set of these?
Some people have fine silver, I have fine penguins!
You might notice my Halloween Anatomy pics are still up, I'm trying folks, can't do it all!
I tried something a little different this year for the mantle and still not sure about it. I had some mercury glass trees and all the clear glass containers you see I found at where else but the GW or garage sales. I filled them with white lights, snow and some ornaments. I threw in a few snowflakes and some sparkle. The picture doesn't even do it justice. As I sit here looking over at my mantle I wish you could see what I see! Well I'm glad you can't see the cobweb hanging from the light or the layer of dust, I'm talking about the sparkle! I wish you could see the sparkle!
I got these wall thingies from a friend and thought hmmm, what could I do with these? Not sure I'm a fan but voila my hanging ornament wall! It works and was much easier then the other one. I know I can't believe it either, I actually have another one! Oh man I'm a copycat!
I made this wreath last year with old mercury glass balls I found at garage sales and the Goodwill. Again this picture doesn't even show you its real beauty! In fact the color of the wall looks like puke against this!
Department 56 Boot I got at half off and my smiling snowman!
This is my tree I found at a garage sale for $3 and I just put it in one of my outside pots for height and added a boa to look like snow.
My upside down tree in our entry!
I found this Santa for half off because he was coming apart. I thought a little surgery would fix him and make him good as new. So I hot glued a boa to make his beard fluffy and I added some eyelashes! Don't worry he was knocked out cold so he didn't feel a thing!
Here are those ornament sticky things again. Can I say what a bitch they were to hang. I think I was on the ladder at midnight trying to get these shits to cooperate. I'm over it, I don't even care if they are straight! I'm not getting on that ladder again!
Just snagged this Department 56 Santa pitcher from the Goodwill for $4.99, can you believe it!
I'm always amazed at what people get rid of but equally amazed at what people have in the first place, wow! Love me a good find at the GW!
Lots more projects and decorating going on here so I'll be back, I hope you will too!
