OUT WITH THANKSGIVING!

I guess I never showed you the finished Glitter Corn centerpiece project!
Unfortunately, I don't have any really good pictures of it either.
It did provide hours of entertainment because guests, like small children, cannot NOT touch the glitter corn.  As a result, by the end of dinner, nearly everyone.....except for me of course, had glitter on their faces.

But Thanksgiving is over!  it's time to move on.
Out with the old and in with the new:
Aren't I cleber?
I changed up the tablecloth, got rid of the glitter corn,
kept the candles and glittered gee gaw and added gold mistle toe and glittery birds.


If only, that was ALL I had to do to pull Christmas off.
Wouldn't that be amazing?
I always hesitate to START dragging out the Christmas "stuff" because it's like an avalanche of tinsel and trinkets that take over the house.
I wish was Cindy Lou Who on The Grinch and I had that Christmas Light Cannon that could shoot the decorations whereever I wanted!

I can dream can't I?

If it makes you feel better, I spent parts of black Friday going through my Christmas boxes and sorting out what is "little o appropriate" from "that will get broken" and "that can be eaten". Ugh.

Your table scape looks beautiful! You should have taken one with all the food, too! And where are those handsome boys???

Yes, out with Thanksgiving, in with Christmas! I applaud your rapid transformation. Oh, and I once saw on Conan O'Brian a velcro tree with a canon that shot velcro ornaments. That might be handy to have around too.

I need that cannon of lights. I don't even think I'll do lights outside this year. I did however, get the tree up. It's on a timer so when I got home tonight it was the first thing I saw in the window. Maybe that will get me motivated....

...Or maybe we could rig the light cannon to shoot frosted cupcakes... yes! That would get me motivated...

I did the same thing. Change the tablecloth, add some mistletoe- which by the way has glitter on it and presto chango- ready for Christmas!
