Tonight I’m finally gonna get to decorating a little bit for the House of Prayer. I love the wreaths I made.. and the little tree I came up with!! Hope that everyone likes it all! I have some garland that I’m going to also use there… just gonna go with the flow on that… so no pictures of that. Just these:
This is my living room… I love it! My sister came over and all she could say was… “Your tree is sooo big and fat! It’s cute though!” haha! I tried to make it fun with the ornaments on the curtains and all the little things that I could do. My little man loves the “play-dough” looking nativity scene… he likes to destroy it to the floor… the other one… he’s doesn’t touch!! My mantle is amazing to me! So happy that I could create something like this! I love my huge wreath that is the main attraction… (well at least I think!!) So yea! this is it!
Well… I say blue, but it’s got some blues, turquoises, silvers, and purple!! Can’t forget my favortie color at Christmas time!! So it’s my dining room- which at the moment has light blue curtains… so it all worked out nicely. I wanted this tree to be in my room with the hubby and I… but our room has big furniture in it, so it didn’t work out. But, I’m really happy that it worked out in the dining room! I love it!! I even had some extra material that I laid down as the tree skirt, along with some tissue paper.
I love decorating for Christmas!! and this year I was blessed with someone elses hand me downs. My (step) mother in law was in the tour of homes a couple of years ago and she decided that she didn’t need all of the stuff she had for it- so she decided… hey, give it to Jessica! and so it was great! I got to decorate my kitchen with some of it!
I was given a lot of things to help me to decorate for Christmas… so I decided to make a wreath with just some of the things I was given. I sat in my floor thinking… I’m just gonne be fun and tacky… Just gonna sit here and put things in this wreath and go with it… So I DID! and yes.. I love it! My favortie part about this wreath are the branches. But most of all… it’s full of fun! I just had to keep it how it was. So I did…
It’s funny that pretty much all of my posts lately have been wreaths… but it’s what I’m good at! and all of my family and friends like them! I like them too! It’s fun and relaxing for me. My sister though only wanted something simple. We went by our local Hobby Lobby and she picked out all of the stuff she wanted in her wreath; and so I worked on it… and came up with this one!
Last year I made this wreath….
But, this year… I wasn’t too happy with it… so I changed it and made it new… The red stuff sticking out of the old wreath were leaves… and I kinda didn’t like those… I got them last year at Hobby Lobby really cheap- so I was destined to use them, but I will find another way to use them on something else. So I added some deco mesh instead! I love that stuff and I came up with this…
This wreath was inspired by the poinsettias that my Grandmother left behind in her house. (Yes, she is still alive- but lving in an assisted living home.) I gathered some of her stuff that she wasn’t able to take with her and kept some of it, but I made this with her favorite flower of Christmas.
My sister came to me and asked me to make a wreath for her mother in law; and of course it’s a Coca Cola wreath!! We thought it would be hard to find Coca Cola things… but it wasn’t. We stopped at Hobby Lobby and found a few ornaments. Then one night as I was out to eat at Cracker Barrell we found some others. I then thought it would be great to get a Coca Cola sign to go in the middle of the wreath- but where oh where would we find one of those!!?? I had thought about maybe looking online- and then we remembered the little Coca Cola Pharmacy in town. For the 27 years that I’ve lived in this town- I have never been to this little store until a few weeks ago where we found the sign. I thought it was great!
I found these little wreath bases for $1.00 at Target and the stuff to go on it…so I couldn’t resist. I had leftover yarn and thought.. hey.. I can make some little wreaths for decor! So I did… and love them, now I just have to figure out where to hang them; or place them…
