Pre Mess

Hi all!
Hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving. We had a great time. A lot of good food and good family!!
These are some photos of the pre dinnertime. After, not as pretty!!
Now everything is cleaned, put away, and the house is getting ready for Christmas.
We have the lights up outside, and the decorations have been brought in. I just need a tree and time to decorate.
Of course there are always a few glitches. I decided we needed some new reindeer for outside as ours were getting very old and worn out. We went out and bought 2 new ones, my husband spent a very long time putting up lights, putting together the new reindeer, only to find out the big one does not work. We checked all possible reasons, but it's a defective one.
So off the the Do It Center where we bought it to get another one. We will see how this one goes.
We have been having very cold weather for Southern California. Yay!! It makes it feel like Christmas.
Have a wonderful week.
Chat again soon.

Getting Ready for Turkey Day!

Hi all!!!
Missed all of you! I'm finally out from under a mountain of glitter.
I'm now getting ready for Thanksgiving!! I'm hosting the big day!! I started decorating today and wanted to snap a few photos for you to see.
I'm using a piece of burlap for my table. It makes a great tablecloth. It's inexpensive and after the big day, you can cut it up to make other things. This is the first time I will be using my new farm table.
For my centerpiece I lined an old galvanized tub with some burlap, added some corn, gourds and a beautiful pumpkin that I purchased at the barn sale back in October.
I will be adding some flowers on Wednesday. So far I'm really liking it. I redid my fireplace today too!! I have been wanting to do that for awhile now. Just haven't had the time. Pretty soon it will be time to redo it again for Christmas!!
I hope you all have a great week, and I will try to get around and visit your blogs.
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!

Gobble Gobble!

Hi all!
Can't believe I haven't blogged in 15 days!!!
I have been busier than ever before. I have been working non stop on orders.
I'm also hosting house guests and Thanksgiving dinner. If you have been wondering where I am, I'm in my studio still under a giant pile of glitter.
We are also getting ready to have baby Jake overnight for the first time this weekend. He will be 14 months old on Sunday. Where has that time gone?
I have added another turkey for you to use if you would like. Just click and save.
I hope you are all doing well. I really miss all of your wonderful blogs. I'm sure I have been missing a lot of great ideas for the holidays. I hope to get back to a regular blog schedule soon.
Have a really great week.
Hope we can chat soon.

Turkey Day On The Way

Hi all!
Hope you had a Happy Halloween!! We had about 250 kids!!!
I just added a Christmas counter to my side bar, I couldn't find a Thanksgiving one.
Anyway, the Halloween is coming down and the turkey decor is going up. I love the fall and Thanksgiving!!!
I am very busy in my studio working on Christmas orders so while I'm up to my elbows in glitter, I'm thinking about you and your wonderful blogs.
Please feel free to click on the Thanksgiving graphic and use it if you want. It would make pretty place cards or a banner or notes for Thanksgiving.
Enjoy your week, and don't eat too much candy!!
