Merry Christmas!


“I’ve got a feeling
This year’s for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true.”

From the song Fairytale of New York by The Pogues

What are you doing today? I hope you are with family and friends. If you are by yourself, you can watch a good movie or shows on Netflix, go for a walk, do something creative, listen to lots of music. 

Thank you for reading my blog and I look forward to creating more posts and reading your comments.

Merry Christmas!

I had been looking for a new artificial tree for a few years but didn’t want to pay more than $75.  I went online at Target and found a 7.5 foot tree that I really liked for $134.  I called the store to see if they had it and the nice salesperson, Aman, told me they had it and it was on sale for $64!!!  He put it on hold for me and I drove over to pick it up.  One good thing about Wiscsonsin is I was in and out of the store in 5 minutes!

Here is the before shot:

It took around 1 hour to fluff out all the branches, but look at the end result!  It comes in 3 pieces.  I really love having this tree.  It was fun to decorate – the branches are durable and when I walk by and accidentally hit the tree, the ornaments don’t fall off.

I wish you all very happy holidays.  I thank you for reading and following my blog.  I love creating posts for you to read, and it keeps me sane too!  

Happy 2014 to everyone!

Walnut Tree Sculpture #treesculpture #swarovski

tree sculpture_8901 blogI came home and my husband showed me the walnut tree sculpture that he made.  I actually loved it!  It’s like the tree is wearing an earring.  I told him I would like to glue Swarovski crystals on the steel rings so the crystals would sparkle for miles around and people would say, “Where are those sparkles coming from?”  (p.s.  Because of the wind it was hard to get a shot of all the rings facing the same direction so you could see all of them.)

What do you think the rings are from?
