Jazzing up my Garland
Its the first of December so I can now share with you my Christmas projects :)
Remember I had mentioned that I had decorated my outdoors early this year?
This is what it looks like right now.
Pretty snow covered, just how I like it.
This is how it looked when I put it up......see no snow.
But it was such a beautiful day, I bit the bullet and put them up early.
I wanted to jazz my garland up this year. It is getting old and needed a bit of pazzaz.
So after I pulled the garland out, I reshaped the branches as they get all smooshed in the bag.
I bought a couple of packages of non-shatter Christmas balls and attached them to the garland.
I used tiny black zip ties to hold the balls on the garland.
I had to vacuum the carpet four times...yup the garland is on its last legs, lol.
Here it is attached under my dinning room window.
Years ago I had drilled in the concrete (you need a special masonry drill bit) then put in masonry screws. I never take them out, so every year I just wrap the garland ends around the screw heads.
See no snow.
This one is below my living room window.
I'm thinking we need to trim the cedar bush...what do you think, lol.
Another photo of the garland now :)
It is a night photo.
Tomorrow I will share the simple wreath I had put together :)
Onto My Day:
My tooth is still bothering me but I have to say not as bad as yesterday.
After taking the sinus medicine a couple of times, I woke up to my sinuses draining down my throat as I slept...gross.
The rest of the day I have been blowing my nose and it sounds like I have a full blown cold.
So hopefully the dentist was correct and it is my sinuses and not my tooth.
Today Wayne, Heather and I went out to find me a case for my phone.
Then I downloaded some apps. I am slowly learning :)
Kristy and her boyfriend Blake went to a concert.
Kristy was so excited as she won the "Meet and Greet" with the band.
So that's it for me tonight :)
I hope you have all had a creative Saturday :)
I got to do book work...so hard to believe its already December..wow.
