It's beginning to look a lot like .....


Okay, Okay, I hate to break it to you but Christmas is less than six weeks away. I know we haven't celebrated Thanksgiving yet but it's time to get the Christmas ball rolling.  I have a really simple project to get you in the mood if you aren't already, but before we get started you have to see my granddaughters Christmas Tree.
 
 
 
 
This is Zsa Zsa"s girl, isn't she cute? She is only three years old and she decorated her Christmas Tree about three weeks ago. In addition, she has already made her Christmas list. Her excitement is so contagious it puts me in the Christmas spirit. Now for the project.....

 
 
 
 Every year I decorate my interior doors to make them look like wrapped gifts. I found this peacock ribbon at Hobby Lobby last year for 50% off and I really really liked it, so I decided to use it for this project. Here's what I did to achieve this look. I started by unwinding the ribbon from the spool and then I stapled it together on the back side of  the door. Easy, Easy, Easy.
 
 
 
 
Next, I glued a piece of cardboard onto the front and back of the ribbon to give the ribbon  some much needed stability. The cardboard will come in handy when I apply the floral spray.

 

 
 
This is a closeup of the ribbon, I love the rich colors and all the intricate details. 
 
 
 
 
Once the cardboard was in place I added the floral spray along with some floral wire. I ran the wire through the spray and wrapped it around both pieces of the cardboard. This keeps the ribbon from folding and it also helps hold the weight of the floral spray in place. 
 
 

 
I purchased the Peacock ornament from Walmart for about $1.97 and I used it to cover the stem. 




 This project would be a great conversation starter for your Holiday guest. Enjoy the pics and Happy Holiday Decorating!!!!

  1. Great idea! I've also started decorating for Christmas. I would love to use that concept for my front door but instead of peacock I want to use snowmen. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    1. Hi Jewel, use what ever ribbon that speaks to you. I love animal prints so naturally I gravitate to that. Also, you can coordinate your ribbon with the colors that you are currently using in your home. I hope this helps.

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!


Chat soon...
