Well, I think it came out really nice this year...and I didn't even feel like I needed that Xanex that I keep meaning to ask my doctor for! The one hitch was I forgot to buy flowers.....OOooops! We only had two roses that were nice so I went shopping in my friends yard.... Some limes, a crown of a succulent, some pretty flowers off of her porch and some cute white berry thingies added to a couple of mini pumpkins from halloween and a millinery rose and I think it came out pretty cute! Take that 1-800-flowers!!! I did it all on my own at the last minute. The kids got a Ceramic Rooster and a little pumpkin wreath surrounding it which I found at the 99 cent store! Frugal to boot!
On Saturday, I was on a mission to find a 3 tiered plate thingy for our big Christmas celebration, something I have wanted for a while. Well, after going to Macy's, Crate and Barrel and Marshall's, I swung into TJ Maxx for one last try and found this brushed silver stand! It fits any plates you like in it and cost me only 10 bucks! I was thrilled! Here are my weekend creations - some matchbox ornaments which will be going to my etsy tomorrow.....
I know this post is all over the place....Kinda like my mind, I never know where it will go... My cute girlie got her hair cut yesterday. She is not sure she likes it yet but I love it. I wanted to take a picture of her and she refused but when I wasn't looking, she took the camera and snapped this silly picture so here ya go!
She is wearing a curler cover from probably the 40's that I bought for the flowers and she swiped.
She cut off approx. 11 inches and is sending it to Locks for Love. Something she has wanted to do for a while...all her own idea! I love this girl!
Have a great start to your week, do something for someone else if you can...we all need to start somewhere!

We also had a christmas card swap. We had Bea's altered postcard, which is really cool, Tonie's pretty and traditional card, Arah's Christmas Skull card, Robin made a beautiful diorama ornament and I made a matchbox ornie.
Here is a close-up of Robin's project. I just love it! She will be putting some up for sale on her etsy soon!
Well, I am off! Gotta go start all the preparations for Thanksgiving. Mom got out and made some of our glassware sparkle so I just had to take a picture to share.

I showed it to my mom and she didn't say much but that night she asked me to pick out the fabric and help cut out circles..... I jumped at the opportunity! (my sewing skills are non-existent!) We decided on red and white so we can put it out at Valentines also...I'm so excited! Here it is in the making:
I think it looks yummy!
Happy Wednesday! hugs! karen.....

The bottles were a "gift". A friend at work said, "I have some slips from my mother in law that I thought you might want the lace off and then there is this... don't be offended," she said and opened this little treasure! Offended???? They are perfume bottles with crowns for tops...I was giddy! The little square powder bottle is darling also, I think it will go into a bottle set for my etsy.
Well, I had two close-ups of the hat and bottles but blogger doesn't seem to want me to put them on tonite. I guess I will try again another time!
Have a great night! karen.....
