I am so excited about Christmas! I mean its the most wonderful time of the year! I thought I would share with you a few scenes that put some jingle in my jangle every day, and pick your brain for some ideas.
We hung up lights on Sunday here is the semi-finished result:
I am totally happy with the mantle in our bedroom
I made this center piece from 2 old wine bottles, an old beer bottle, spray paint, spray adhesive, epsom salt and some "pretty crap" from Hobby Lobby. Please disregard the current beer bottle in the foreground and brown paper bag in the background...
Cleverlyinspired via Pinterest. Complete cost was under $13 (I already had the silver balls, white table runner, and beads). I will tell you one thing not included on the step by step: take the labels off the bottles! I tried a few with labels left on and you can totally see them through the paint, but let's be honest not a big deal - I just grabbed a few more empty bottles out of the recycling bin (its like a never ending supply there) and started over!
Finally in case you are wondering about Ralph, he is growing, and he is a fast learner he is playing fetch and going potty outside! The pictures below were taken exactly a week apart in front of our couch.
