Most Treasured Ornament 2014

Hi Everyone!

It's that time of the year when I get to create our annual Christmas sphere, our Most Treasured Ornament. Every Christmas, since my hubby and I first started dating, I have made an ornament to commemorate a special or important event that happened to us on that particular year... This year was our road trip to Four Corners National Monument.

We had so much fun on that trip that it was definitely worth putting in the sphere.
I made the paper rose out of vintage music sheet. The date holder is a dollar store find. I bent it a little to fit the curb of the sphere. I cut the heads off of mini screws and glued them in place. 
We visited Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona, Mesa Verde in Colorado on our way to Four Corners National Monument which is in....
New Mexico
And Utah. Four Corners National Monument is the only place in the United States where one can be in four places at once...Hee, hee, hee. It is where the corners of four state meet.

I always have so much fun creating these ornaments. And when I am done I always wonder what will go in next year's. So exciting, I can't wait. If you would like to see other year's spheres you can click here....

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.

Christmas Card Holder

Hi Everyone!
It's Friday and we are only 7 days away from Christmas. Yay!!!!

Today I wanted to share with you our Christmas card holder. This year I wanted to display our Christmas cards in a new and different way so.... 

My sweet mother-in-love bought this gorgeous, huge frame for me at a thrift store. Can you believe it was only $20.00!!!! All I did was add 4 jute rope lines and some mini clothes pins to hold the cards and there you have it, a very fancy, schmancy Christmas card holder...Hee, hee, hee.
 So what do you think? WAGI worthy?

Thank you all for stopping by for a visit.
Always enjoy the company.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Hugs and Kisses,

Oh dear, my deer!

They have arrived!
My deer have arrived.

I had a vision of what I wanted my coffee table vignette to look like and it required a pair of deer! (I am so obsessed with deer this year.) 
Hubby and I looked everywhere and I do mean everywhere... Pier Imports, Target, Marshall's, Kohl's, K-Mart, Home Goods, Tuesday Morning (you get the picture) and can you believe we couldn't find any?
I resisted looking on-line because I thought that if I found them there I wouldn't get them before Christmas. But I gave in...I was desperate! Hee, hee, hee.
And I am so excited to say that I found what I was looking for and I did get them with plenty of time....Aren't they beautiful? Found them on Amazon.
They are absolutely perfect and they brought my vision to life exactly how I imaged.
Here are other elements of my vignette. I crafted the music sheet spheres you see in the little lantern a few days ago along with the Buon Natale tag. 
I also put together this petite hydrangea arrangement in a vintage milk glass vase I picked up at a thrift store. And I covered the books underneath it with butcher paper and tied them up with some pretty lace. So happy how it all turned out. What do you think?

Happy New Week Everyone!

Hugs and Kisses,
