Animal Print Christmas Tree

Happy Monday and Merry soon to be Christmas. Have you finished your Christmas shopping? I haven't started yet. So today I will be making a mad dash to the store, to get it done. Any who, I didn't do a lot of decorating this year, so I figured I would share a Christmas tree from a few years ago. I had purchased several spools of ribbon that I loved. I wanted to use the ribbon, but I didn't know how or where. At the time I purchased the ribbon decorating trees with poly mesh was BIG business. I liked the look of the poly mesh trees, but I didn't have any on hand. So I decided to decorate the tree with the ribbon......

Animal print ribbon....
  I am slowly easing you into the finished tree, so be patient. I used not one, not two, but three different ribbons. What can I say about the tree topper? I like it because it's everywhere, sort of like my hair! lol. You like?
 The addition of the ornaments and poinsettias add depth, dimension and sparkle. Gotta have that sparkle! Did I mention animal prints are my fave?
Even the tree skirt is trimmed in animal print! Are you still with me? Almost there....
Drum roll please....

Here's the decorated tree. So what do you think?


I used the remaining peacock ribbon to make the doors in the entry look festive, and to coordinate with the tree. Have you ever used any animal prints in your Christmas decorating?
Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Hi Lory, Merry Christmas! I love your animal print ribbons! I really like the peacock ribbon & feathers. I have a peacock as the topper on my tree. I wanted peacock feathers, but I didn't want to over spend this year.

    1. Thanks Dee, hope you had a very Merry Christmas. You know my motto "Every room needs a little animal print." Happy New Year!

  2. Very pretty, Lory! Your tree is so full! Love the different ribbons you used. Merry Christmas!!

    1. Thanks Brandi, and have a Happy Healthy and prosperous New Year!

  3. That's a very pretty Christmas tree. I've never seen one quite like it and the skirt is so glam. I love how you decorated your front door, too. Merry Christmas to you... :)

    1. Thanks Dee, the tree was a hit with friends and family. Happy New Year!

  4. Oh Lory I totally love it! The peacock ribbon is fantastic.

    May you have a joyously happy and healthy new year!

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...

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
