Just A Quickie...


I don't know about you ladies, but I swear my husband thinks this house decorates itself. He think it's like magic and is not sure exactly how it all happens. (much like when I pull my bra out through my arm sleeve - he is STILL bewildered by that one) I have been dragging up decorations form the basement like a mad woman and I think I am burning myself out. Time to take a break from it all. :)


So I found these neat little fuzzy ornaments while shopping the other day. I just love the look of them (well, I loved them until I realized they SHED like crazy!) I thought they'd be nice strung up in a banner, and I actually thought of this before I saw my sister's Melody's artful creation btw. :)


Just as simple as pie. All I did was string them up and hot glue some silver glittered initial on them.


Tah-dah! Instant holiday garland.

My husband doesn't decorate either. Nor does he bake. Christmas is like an actual holiday for him. Grrr.

Nice quickie! LOL!

Are all husbands cut from the same cloth?

Love,

Well, isn't that just precious!

My husband is the Light King. He puts the lights on the tree and does the outside Clark Griswold style. Other than that, nothing.

how ironic, i'm taking a blog-break from holiday decorating while my other half makes sure the couch doesn't hit the ceiling.

anywho - adorable banner!

How funny, my husband is mesmerized by the bra thing too. I love your ideas. Too cute!

Sherry said...

Aren't men always amazed when we do the bra through the arm hole trick?!? They're just jealous cuz they can't do that with da boxers or da briefs!! :)

Love the little ho ho ho...shedding through the snow....

So cute. I need to get me some of those glitter letters so I can make some banners. One of the many things I want to do before Christmas. Wish me luck!

Aww nice Joy, I have always said that there is so much you can do with festive furry balls ;0) HA!
Dont worry my hubby has no idea of what is newly decorated in the house, just totally zones out till I put him on the spot! Even then it takes a few guesses to sort out what is actually new and wasnt there before! Bless his cotton socks :0)

BTW, Joy... were you the lady who once commented on my previous blog a lot but remained anonymous as merely 'joy'?

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Love that sign, Joy! And love the one your sister made. Yeah, this holiday decorating can get tiring sometimes. I feel so behind, but I'm getting there.
