I have to apologize for the shameless shop plugs lately but since it's "black Friday" I can get away with it right? But really, Christmas, as usual, is sneaking up quickly and I still have so many items to list and make and then suddenly this happens...We've been planning on renovating our bathroom and when the contractor came to look at it, well, you usually expect them to say, "in a few weeks or months". This guy shocked us and was able to get to it right away. So now the house is in complete disarray...just in time for the holidays! So I figured I better get a move on it before I'm too consumed with decorating, shopping and baking.
I've been making these snowballs for the past few years as gifts and I keep a lot around the house in bowls with some greens tucked in. They are so Christmasy and really do look real!
I also bleached these old bottle brush trees and added some mercury glass beads and crystal glitter. After I was done I hated to give them up but a girl can only have so many bottle brush trees!

Well thanks for letting me plug my shop and I'll be back with some bathroom "afters" soon.
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday!!!

Haven't thought of bleaching trees, where do you come up with these great ideas? The trees are adorable! As well as the rest of the eye candy you have!

Well, now. Who'd have ever thought about bleaching bottle brush trees? What a great idea! Love the snowballs, too. Hope you sell it all so fast you have to run make more to keep up with the demand!

I'm challenging our blogging friends to post a Christmas decoration picture every day - or at least as many as we can - between now and Christmas. Would love for you to join, amidst the disarray of reconstruction. You can see more details on my blog.
