Bunnies for Christmas?

Pin It

Growing up I was the "artsy" one and my sister was the "smart" one. I think it's about time that this myth gets debunked.

First off, I too am clever. I may have not been as studious as she was, preferring to invest my time in  a social life versus Social Studies, but I'm no slouch.

Second, it takes some genuine creativity to whip up one of these babies up in your free time between raising four kids and managing a career as an RN.

I also succumbed to the pressure of buying my kids small pets, but my sweet sis takes pet care to a whole different level. I don't know many lop ears that get to live in such fine accommodations. Fine work sister!

Christmas is Coming!

Pin It

I've never been a fan of artificial trees. I'm guessing it's a residual feeling that comes from growing up in a family who left the tree up through January. It's much more fun to put up than take down!
If it wasn't such a great deal I might have walked by, but I walked into Home Depot right in the middle of the Martha Stewart tree event and the great door buster price, combined with three out of five of us having horrible hay fever, I decided to stop and take a look.

Fake trees have come a long way in the past few seasons and Martha Stewart is a GENIUS.
This artificial tree is pre-lit with bulbs that switch from white to colored at the touch of a button. Who knew this even existed?

So here's my tree. I used string after string of capiz shell garlands, giant capiz shells, starfish clusters and aqua glittered starfish, then I wrapped the whole thing with rolls of soft wide burlap ribbon. The wash tub that we normally use for the kids shoes made a great tree stand!
