Hi Everyone !

Today kicks off a month of photos and tips on Christmas decorating, and maybe even some recipes.

Thanksgiving comes tomorrow, and I always have a fall tree up to celebrate !

Here is one of our trees from a couple of years ago ....

and this year ....

This is always a simple little tree, so I can strip it quickly and redo it for Christmas.

I think the green tree, now that I see the photos, is the better choice for fall.

I am of the "stuffer" mind set, and stuff silk fall flowers and leaves quickly.  I add some brown balls, and acorn decorations to complete the fall look. 

I will be posting a lot of really easy quick decor ideas, so I hope you will join me !!

The house telling you to close your eyes


Wow, things are so busy !  So much coming up, including our trip to WDW with our Brie, Jason and Spencer at the beginning of 2015.  Whew.

We are coming up on Thanksgiving but doncha know we still have a large pack of wild turkeys on our street.  (Someone should warn them ....)  Last year we had 9, but this year we have about 24, one of the hens is an albino.  I have seen two other large packs around town, but I have heard they have invaded all over.  Anyone else having turkey troubles ??

Well, today I did get a card done, thank goodness ...

Today's card is heading over to 

with this sketch ...

I turned it on its side ...

Pretty simple.  Hope you like it !!
