AND...Here's the Tree

After fighting with the blue lights ... and adding every ornament that I have collected over the last 25 years..
I still could not stand the after three days...
I pulled off ALL 12,000 blue lights and just started over.
I had spend to much money on that darn FLOCKIN tree to let it get the best of me!
 Added some old white lights (with green wires)  that I had.
Dug out all the red stuff that I have had for years and slapped those on top of all the traditional ormnaments.  Did not spend a cent on decor, but went up and down the step stool 5 million times.

 Oh Christmas Tree,
 Oh Christmas Tree,
How you liked to have killed thee..

I am just getting around to getting a picture ...
the branches, like me, have begun to get a bit whimpy and tired by this time of the season.
(No gorgeous wrapping here, I used
 3yrs. worth of  left over scrap paper.)

I have been so busy making scarves, sugared pecans, microwave neck wraps, along with lots of other projects. 
 I  really can't talk about them because spying eyes want to know what I have made them for Christmas. HEHE...

Look at Snoopy having a grand ole time in that flocked tree...

Look out... I caught him this time on his snow mobile...
Sad that it is really 70 degrees and raining out! enjoying napping in the section of the tree that had a missing branch.
(Great way to hide those gaps in real trees, use large ornaments or little stuffed gingerbread people)

I just have to share my bargain..
I picked these up at Lowes for 2.50. 
It bloomed at the beginning of this week and is so pretty on my coffee table.  I have a red one in the kitchen, but it has not bloomed yet.. maybe it will be my New Years lilly.
Smells sooo much better that the paper whites.

Looking forward to sharing lots of recipes,
crafting, and my crazy adventures
 with you in the New Year.

May you have a wonderful Christmas ...

The whole family just got back in from a movie and I was showing them the new changes to my blog...I saw your new post and we all read it together.:) They all thought your tree was so pretty and laughed out loud at your poetic charm! Glad your back!

Merry Christmas!

I LOVE your newly re-done flocked tree! It is beatuiful, and so southern (that is a good thing). I'm a tad jealous. Merry Christmas :)

I like your tree,but I feel your pain, I have fiddled with my tree every day and still don't think it is as good as it could be.I am just trying to remember that this is really not too important.Merry Christmas to you and yours.

It turned out beautiful! I would have done the same thing...Oh wait, I have done the same thing. Did the tree and took it all down and started over-Just last year! Egad!
I do love the red on white~ Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!
