My Window Display

As I mentioned in my last blog post "Post Christmas House Tour," I wanted to share one of my latest adventures. I have dreamed of owning a home decor store for years, heck for decades. I think one of the things I would enjoy about the store is setting it all up, putting displays together. I recently had an "a ha" moment. I have such a hard time explaining my passion - I feel like some people just don't get me. So the other day my daughter was explaining her passion about her sketchbook, how it is part of her, it is her work, she carries it every where.

Freebie Garland

Hi! I am coming up for air after tazzin' around preparing my home for Christmas. I will post a full Christmas house tour hopefully in the next couple of days. I did, however, want to send out this great freebie garland idea - IF there is a soul reading this that has not decorated his or her tree yet!
