Trees, Decorating, and Misc. Goodies!!





Good Morning Ladies!!


It is another Beautiful day here in Southern IL. This entire weekend the weather has been in the upper 60's and sunny! I LOVE it!! I sure do wish it would stay this way all winter long.


My Steelers play in about an hour, so I thought I would take some time b4 the game to show off a few things.


First off, I wanted to show everyone these adorable Christmas trees I made yesterday.

The picture truly doesn't do them justice, they are so much cuter in person.



I have the funnel base tree, the Spry tin tree and the Roseville Santa Tree all listed on my website.

I cant decide if I am going to sell the sifter tree or not.
I absolutely love it.
I got the idea for the sifter tree from my prim pal Angie. She had made one, which I wanted to buy off of her. But hubby said enough buying decorations, you need to start buying presents. LOL!! So true!!
I have went nuts with decorations this year. I have barely any gifts bought yet.
Maybe I can just have everyone come over and look at my new decorations as their gift.
LOL! Nope, I don't think that will work either.




So any way... Since hubby said no more buying decorations....
I decided to make myself my own sifter tree.
I love the way it turned out.




Next, I wanted to show everyone what I did with the wonderful little tree my MIL bought me.
I decorated it with strip of homespun, berries, and white lights.
I have it sitting inside a round wooden box.
Oops! Guess, I should have moved Santa out of the way.
Oh well, here are some photos of my new tree.









Here are some other photos of the corner of my kitchen where I put the tree.







I know, I know...Tam you're getting carried away with the pict's AGAIN!! LOL!!
Okay, just one more. I want to show where I put my new Santa head that I got from OTP.
He looks so cute above my sink.






Now onto some non-Christmas goodies.





These are some items I bought this year at the Longest Sale.
Yes, that was in August... but I forgot to show off some of my photos.
So better late than never!! LOL!


Look at this neat masher I found.
I have never seen anything like it before.
I believe it is a home made, make do item.
Isn't it cool!!






I also finally found me a soap saver.
I would rather have a square one but this will do until I can find one.





I also love this old wooden box I found. Yes it does have Old mustard yellow paint. ;)







Well, ladies that is it for me today.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit me.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
And just in case I don't get back before Thursday.
I wish you all a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving!!

Take Care and Prim Filled Blessing to you All!!
