A Start for Christmas

Hello Everyone!!!  Whew this year has flown by.  Where has time gone?  I managed to fit in a few Christmas projects and hopefully I will find time to do a lot more over the next few weeks.  I feel so behind ATM.

I knew when I came across this Angel shaped grapevine wreath that I had to make an Angel Christmas Wreath.  I really wanted to do black and read plaid.  I love plaid christmas items.  This is what I came up with.

I have a cute story to tell.  My lovely blogging friend Mrs. Cobs made these adorable Acorns that you just have to see.  She has a fantastic blog.  Read about them here. (https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/65708825/posts/35752)  I told her the story because her lovely acorns made me think of the story.  She encouraged me to tell the story.  So here it is. I hope y’all enjoy it.

I was at work last month and a squirrel got into the store.    The poor thing was trapped in the store for 3 days.  We set friendly traps the first day to try to catch it, but no luck.  The 2nd day this squirrel was hiding in the bedding area.  It frightened a customer and associate half to death that was shopping down the aisle where it had decided to hide.  I am pretty sure it was as frightened as they were.  It ran underneath a display so we move these traps closer (because they worked so well the first time lol).  One of my co workers felt bad for it.  She was tossing peanuts underneath the display and the little thing was eating them.  We still couldn’t get it and after an hour and half of trying to coax it out lol we gave up.  On the 3rd day a very excited customer came running to say there is a squirrel in the gift bags.   LOL so the associates came to get me. So out I went into the gift bag section.  I decided today was the day.  One by one we starting removing these gift bags.  One or two were shredded lol. Suddenly we reached for a rather large gift back and felt hard movement.  The poor thing in his fright had jumped into this huge gift bag.  It thought if it was super still we wouldn’t fund him.  We reached for the bad and the bag lurched.  We carefully lifted it off the peg and carefully looked inside.  Yep SQUIRREL.  lol It chattered at us.  So off we went as quick as possible out the back door.  Sat the bad down and out it ran.  It ran up the huge tree.. Then quickly came back down it, stopped,  looked at us and gave us a talking to. SO either it was super happy it was free again or it was cursing us out for giving it a fright. LOL  Either was I was happy to get it back into its element.  I am pretty sure it was just as happy!.

I also visited King Tut this  month.  It was so interesting.  I had a great time and enjoyed ready about him.   I am going to share a few pics of my visit.  Amazing how much time and thought goes into these tombs.  Everything has meaning.  This is the last time they will be touring.  He will be making his way back to Egypt for his finally resting place.

A Coastal Wreath

 

So I found this awesome wreath form.  I wanted to make a coastal wreath for my home.  I had these really pretty large starfish, sand dollars  and I had these beautiful smaller seashells that I gathered from my trips to the beach.   I laid out all my supplies and started figuring out how I wanted to place them.  I LOVE the Lilly’s with the seashells.  They really are a striking combination.  Overall I absolutely love how it turned out.

I have to tell you though.  After I got it all made I hung it on my china cabinet by the little twine hangar that came with the wreath. I should have knows better.  That darn wreath’s hanger broke and it fell landing on my toes. Ugghhhhh and let me tell you it HURT but all I could think of in between limping and grabbing it up was please don’t break my seashells!!!!!! … thankfully.. I chipped ONE shell on the side.   I ended up with a bruised toe and some minor swelling that I put ice on.  So all is well and now I have it hanging by the wood on a heavy-duty hanger.  No more accidents. =)

I hope y’all like it!  Until Next time!

Have a great week,

A Eclectic Mix

This past month I have been lax on posting.  Today’s post is all about this months projects all in one place.  I have many different styles of projects and I hope something will speak to you.

First up in this pretty summery beehive wreath.    I loved making this.  This wreath is packed full of summer color.   I totally love the little bee’s on the flowers and the beehive.  It gives it such a cute whimsy effect.

I really love blue.  I decided to make a farmhouse piece with some blues, creams, and beige.

I know it is super soon but I was in the mood to make a fall piece.  When I was in Texas last month I found this cute wall basket in an antique store.  I knew from the start I wanted it to be a fall arrangement.  I LOVE the versatility of this piece.   You can hang it on a wall or you use it on a table or shelf.  It really is a beautiful piece.   One of my favorites.
