A big sigh..............

That is what I did about 5pm Saturday evening!  Where have you been lately - you ask?  Why haven't you blogged yet in December - you ask?  Well this is why.............
Advent Calender I made for Emily

My friend Chris made me this wreath out of Music - it's PERFECT!!
Susan saw these on pinterest and Grandiflora carries the wire so we made these!

This is the garland on my tree - should've grabbed one more - I love it!
So happy with the tree!
I love the lighted branches - I keep them out year round!

The stockings were hung by the "stair rail" with care?
This was my Favorite new thing - I love this look!
Randy "whipped" out this table for me 2 weeks ago!

The votive cups were sprayed with adhesive and rolled in Epsom salts.
Gotta have an apothecary filled with ornaments!

We were asked to put our home in the "Home for the Holidays" Christmas Home Tour for Bethany Christian Services.  We've been busy at it and now I can enjoy all the decorations and the REALLY clean house!  But now - maybe I should start buying Christmas gifts?!?!  :)  My dear friend Susan helped me so much - she even cleaned a toilet or two!  this pic is not the greatest of either of us as we were in sweats - no makeup - cleaning mode, but I couldn't leave her out since I couldn't have done it without her!!
Upstairs will be another post- too many pics on this one already.

Are you taking pics for your Daily December?  :)
