More Christmas Decor Photos



Hello Ladies,
Well... I didn't get my decorating finished today, like I had hoped.

I really am not sure where my day went today!?

It just seemed to fly by. I feel like I was so busy all day, yet I'm not sure what I accomplished either.

I'm getting ready to go sit down and watch some TV with Hubby b4 he heads off to bed.
But I wanted to pop in a post some photos of my Christmas decor.

WARNING! I have a tendency to get carried away with pictures!! LOL!!


First are some shots of my foyer.




















Here are some photos of my dining room.
I'm not happy with my yellow cabinet. It needs some greenery and some different display items.
To me everything on this cabinet just looks stuck here and there with no type of theme what so ever.
Also I need to do some work on my Bakers Cabinet.
Besides those things and maybe some tweaking, this room is pretty much finished.































See!! I told you I get carried away with taking pictures!!! LOL!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting me!!
I will be adding more photos as soon as I can.
Until next time... Take Care and Prim Blessings to you all!!

And So The Decorating Begins...


Okay, to be honest... I actually started decorating about a week ago.
A little here and there and mainly in my kitchen and my 1/2 bath.
But a couple of days ago I really started hitting it hard.
Now I am finished with my kitchen, my living room, my foyer and my dining room. (Well, beside maybe a little tweaking here and there.)
Still need to do my master bed, master bath and mud room.
Hopefully by tomorrow I will be finished.
I have taken a ton of photos. I need to still get them sized, cropped, etc. before showing them off.
But I decided to give just a peek at a little of what I have been doing.

This is one of my little trees in my kitchen. I think this one turned out really cute!





Here is some of the display in my foyer.
My Mom just gave me the adorable Snowman!!



And lastly, here are a few pictures of displays in my dining room.









Okay, that's it for now.
But more photos coming soon.



One thing I did think was funny...
My hubby asked me tonight. "What is it with you women and decorating?"
"Does it really give you that much of a thrill?"
My answer... "YES!"
Then he asked me... "Why?"

Here is what I said to him to try to explain it.
"Most little girls love to play with doll houses. Whether it is a normal doll house, or a Barbie doll house, Little People house, what ever.
We loved to decorated it. Taking the furniture pieces placing it where ever it needed to go. And taking our dolls and have them walk around and play.
It's same now.... Its just a Life Size doll house and I play at decorating."
His answer... "Okay, I guess that makes sense." ;)
LOL!
Well ladies, it after midnight here. And I am so tired. I have worked my bottom off today. ;)
Getting ready to head off to bed.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me!!
Until next time, Take Care and Prim Blessing To You All!!

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!!
