And I’m thinking about Christmas!! Oh, don’t worry, I’d NEVER skip Thanksgiving. Sheesh, I barely skip breakfast, do you think I’d skip THAT meal?? LOL!!! I’m actually excited for Thanksgiving this year. For the first time in, well, forever.. my family is coming to my house! My Mom, my Brother and Nephew, and our Bestest family friend Deb! It’s going to be great! But, my Mind is decorating for Christmas!!
I made a trip to the Dollar Tree.. amazing, ME?? At the Dollar Tree? Or as we call it, The 20 Dollar Tree!! Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever spent under 20 dollars there. There’s always some school supply or gadget that I need.. or a decorating idea.. that I NEED!!
So, I was there.. and I saw THESE
Oh yeah.. they’re cute enough.
But wait.. there’s Spray Paint involved! I had to go to Walmart to get some of that.. can you believe that I was out of Spray Paint? I didn’t have ANY black or Heirloom White.. hmmm.. is that a hint??? I’m going for a new look on my tree this year.. maybe it involves black, white or red.. maybe!!
And.. while I’m on that topic.. Last year my tree stand DIED! I just remembered this today. Now, it’s not my forever and ever tree… it’s a 7 feet, pre-lit slim pine. I dream of having a tall fluffy one.. but it just won’t work in THIS house.. maybe next year!! So, last year I put the tree in one of my crock’s (not the shoes) and loaded it with pebbles to hold it up.. It worked fairly well, but I still worried about it endlessly! So.. I’m thinking of finding a big Urn in the Garden Shop at Home Depot (I have my eye on one.. on clearance) and cementing it in there. What do you think? I’ll be using this tree in the Dining room in our next house.. so I want something pretty. Help me out!! I have it pictured in my head perfectly.. just hope that it turns out. I’ve never actually cemented anything.. soooooo…
And… check out this beauty.. (lol- Sophie and Sully are sniffing it for you)
I found this at the thrift shop on base yesterday.. it’s marked 4.99.. I got it for 2.49!! Whoo hoo!! I’ve been looking for something like this for my bedroom for Hubs’ stuff! It’s definitely getting some spray paint today- along with the stars! I’m hoping that it warms up a bit so the paint will dry!!
How’s your Tuesay???
