If only

If only things went according to plans and I could actually cross things off my list on the day I intend to get them done, I would have a nice clean, completely decorated house by now and I would also have all my shopping done and wrapped so I could sit back and have fun crafting and baking for Christmas. Well, things never work that way - at least not for me!

All the decorations are out - I just can't crop enough crap out of the pictures to show much yet, so we will start with the coat rack I showed you here.


I used it to hang our stockings, but thought it looked a little bare with just the stockings so I added some lighted garland. Not a bad substitute for a mantle.


A close up of the snowmen that are twisted into the garland. I've had this for a long time - I used to use it over the window in my kitchen (at the last house) but hadn't found a place to use it here until now.

We won't even go into how far behind I am in reading blogs but I'm pretty sure it is going to get worse before it gets better.

I best get busy. Want to have a package ready to mail to baby boy and his bride tomorrow - I want to make sure it has plenty of time to make it to New York before Christmas!

Your stockings and lights look terrific. I had to laugh about cropping pictures - I crop like mad! Even though I try to take photos that don't show any of my mess, it inevitably sneaks in and then I have to crop it out!
