A Day Late and a Dollar Short!

Y'know, sometimes I worry myself....

It's kinda scary, really.

I know I'm a Grandma.
but...come ON!
I'm only 38. ONLY. 38.

I'm not old.

Not THAT old!!!!

but my memory....

Scatterbrained. That's me.

Well, anyways, I missed the Blog Party yesterday. I kept thinking it was on Tuesday. Then, it snowed, the kids went to school 2 hours late, my husband was home, I had to work at Paper Muse....excuses, I know. What it boils down to is simple: I FORGOT!!!! ...sigh...

Okay, enough. Better late than never, right?

So, first off, I want to share my favorite wreath. I wrote about it a little in my last post, if you read it. I found these deer, these lovely flocked deer at the Goodwill. They were .99!!!! Oh, how I love these deer! Add to that, a vintage bottlebrush wreath. Truly vintage, not just reproduction. Tiffant found it at an Estate sale we went to. She carried it around the whole time, but, at the last second, decided she didn't want it. She asked if I did, and I swear, I whimpered, I was so HAPPY! And it was only .50! Lovely aged white color.... It had ugly plastic pointsettias on it, so those had to go. I put some Shiny Brite ornaments in their place. These ornaments are the kind that have the indented starburst-like front. I found them at an antiques store. They were the loveliest colors, but the indent was broken on them. The lady at the counter said I could have them for free, if I had any use for them. {choke} Ummm, I think I could come up with something....

Here it is:

Next is a little village scene I made. I spray painted a wooden cake plate, added a little village of wooden houses, LOTS of glitter, fake snow and a few bottlebrush trees, a cake dome, and....

Well, I wanted to share my pink tree all decorated, but I don't have pictures yet, and I have three babies wanting lunch, so, I'll try to do it later.

That is, If I can remember!

Hi Tammy,
I love the deer too, and the house display under glass turned out so pretty. Are you loving this snow or hating it? I hope you are staying safe and warm.
