A Nice Weekend.....

This was the first Thanksgiving that I had the majority of the responsibility...shopping, cooking, decorating....Now, I am a nervous nellie. There is no other name for what I am, I don't do well in these circumstances.
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!
xoxo karen....

Oh my, she is darling. I love her hair. Her hat makes her look like one of those ladies that do synch swimming. She is precious!
