And so it begins....

You may recall we had about a foot of snow last week and it was so beautiful. We had a hoar frost on Saturday and Sunday mornings which was stunning. Sunday the temperature rose well above freezing and Monday it was 10C. Most of the snow is now gone. Green grass is showing so it doesn't look as pretty as the photo above anymore. The temperatures have been high and low and high and.....low again.....dipsy doodling all over the place. It's still autumn after all. It's -8 and sunny here today and tomorrow will be +8 with snow then rain.

Monday morning was spent fluffing the Christmas tree. I use my gardening gloves for this chore as the branches can scratch and it's easier to adjust them. This morning I finished decorating it and I'll post photos another day. Now, if I could concentrate on my Christmas cards and then shopping and wrapping, I'd be all set.
On Saturday morning I attended a ladies breakfast at our church. Different ladies decorated a table with their own theme and even their own dishes in some cases, and they were all so beautiful. I got a lot of ideas from them. This table was my favourite. Isn't it amazing?
A close up of one of the place settings. Isn't it beautiful? I love the rustic look.
And....if you like sparkle and glitz this one was beautiful!
I bought some of this mesh 'ribbon' the other day and after watching a how-to video on You Tube I made 4 of them. So easy! My old ribbons I had on these containers were really sad looking after 3 winters so I tossed them out. Have you made any bows with this mesh? I've sure enjoyed visiting around blogland and seeing all the beautiful and creative decorations. It can get overwhelming though and sometimes makes me feel very inadequate. I have to remember that I don't have to be like them but to make the best of what I already have. I don't need more stuff when I can make do and 'shop the house' for ideas.
Thank you for visiting and for your input on my last post. I appreciate each one who stops by.
Have a great day!
