ahh.. the tree! (a a craft room peek)

Here is the Jolly old elf I live with.. carting our tree happily through the tree farm.. He just doesnt look so happy does he? thats cause hes not.. hes the grinch! but he loves me so he does it anyways! I just wish he was a bit more jolly about it! He wouldnt pose for a picture, so I had to run way ahead of him and turn back to get one.. hmmmph! He is a cute old thing though isnt he? This one was easier to take!
And, of course.. the finished product! I could probably put more ornaments on it.. and I might later.. but for now.. its done!
heres a little peek at my developing craft room.. starting to have some fun in there!

have a great day girls..
oh! I havent drawn the winner yet for my giveaway! leave comments and I will do it tomorrow

Hello to my blonde sister friend! What a pretty tree! The craft room is looking good. We have -40 below windchill, so I have been playing in my sand and dreaming of the beach!

Viv - I was hoping you would already have your snowman - I'm sorry the surprise was ruined - but he is better in person! - Your hubby looks like a belsnickle- pulling that Christmas tree - ha-ha. I am due end of June - but I would love to have an Independence day baby.

Thank you for the Christmas Music too! -

Sweet B

Every year, I give Mr. Bojo a Grinch ornament! Our guys like to grumble about all the work in decorating, but I know mine enjoys the end result. He just likes to grumble while he's doing it!

Everything is looking Christmas-y at your house!

I read this post with a smile on my face. Your husband the elf is a nice an lovely man I think. My husband does things for me because he loves me. He always says "when you love someone you do things for the one you love" Give your husband a big hug. I wish you and your family nice days.
greetings Marja

I love your tree and all your decorations. Every thing is so wonderful.
I wish we could have a real tree in our house BUT do to being allergic to Pine and Cedar, that is out. :-( Haven't had a real tree in many, many, many years.

Fran said...

It's me again. I just had to tell you that it's snowing in Las Vegas. LOL LOL!! Yes, we are getting 3-6 inches of snow and some areas are getting up to 10 inches in the Las Vegas valley. They will let everyone know at 4 A.M. if they have a SNOW DAY!!!

Kai said...

Your hubby reminded me of the grandfather in the Shirley Temple movie version of Heidi! You know - TRYING to be an old curmudgeon but failing miserably! LOL! You aren't fooling us, Mr. Tree-Getter! We KNOW you are a sweetheart! And Viv, you did a great job decorating EVERYTHING! Your house looks so festive and beautiful! Good thing I love you or I'd be SOOOOOOOOO jealous of that wonderful craft room!
