I really don't like the crazies of the holidays.
A mad dash to the mall + road rage + push and shove +
grab and poke + long lines + exasperated customers and disgruntled employees
one crazy, unstable, extreme woman
This year I'm not going to do it.
I'm buying on-line.
I'm shopping local during the middle of the day
when the crowd is away.
I want to get all of my decorating
done before Thanksgiving.
I know! Don't shoot me down!
My daughter and her husband are coming
and they won't be home for Christmas.
Today I went to Hobby Lobby.
This is my start.
The first thing I got out was my mama's candy dish.
She kept kisses or peppermint candy all year round.
This year I have both, candy cane kisses.
I found one of my Santa mugs pushed to the back of a cluttered shelf.
I got the brush tree today at Hobby Lobby.
Yes, I copied Pinterest!
I have wanted trees like this for years.
1. Spray paint the lantern red.
2. Add more candies
3. Add some red candle holders
4. Add white candles and tie a red ribbon around them.
5. Add some boxes or books for height.
I will not rush, I will not dash, I will not push, I will not shove, I will not have a break down.
