It Was A Dark And Stormy Day.....

Hi all!
Hope you had a nice weekend.
I wanted to show you my decorated Christmas tree today, but it's dark and stormy. So I'm waiting for better light. I thought I would show you my Rhode Island Christmas decoration from my friend Jean. (You all know Jean by now) Jean sent this to me last Christmas. I love it, and I think my rooster does too!
I also wanted to show you some burlap wreaths I have been making today. It's a burlap Christmas this year. They are going to Sticks N Stones this week.
We really need rain here in Southern California, so I'm glad that it is dark and stormy today. I will show you my tree later in the week. It turned out very nice.
Back to the burlap!!
Chat again soon.

Oh you need rain and we need some snow! It is been unseasonably warm, well, in the 30degree range...that is warm for this time of year! But, our spirits are up and running and ready to celebrate! Your ideas are burgeoning and I can't wait to see what you do with these divine burlap wreaths! And to see your tree will be a treat! Looking forward to it, Anita

I think this year is going to be a strange winter year, with lots of storms...we are having another one hitting tonight...freezing fog right now!!! Crazy!

I can't believe how pretty the burlap wreaths are. They are just fascinating.

Good morning glitter queen!! I love knowing when you visit me, it is while you are either making a crown or something else with your magic glitter! I always enjoy seeing your comments my friend. Have a wonderful California winter day, Anita
