I need Your Help...

So, just a quick pop in to get your opinion.  This is my TV area.  We have a TON of cords coming out of there from the TV, cable box, DVD player, and the Wii.  Therefore, I have that sheep painting kinda blocking them.  The thing is, I am getting sick of the sheep.

The little pieces that you put over the cords just don't work... We have too many cords.  Any ideas on what I can put there besides the painting?  Or do you like the painting?  I thought about a picture, blown up larger...but haven't found a frame that looks right... oh the delimas! ;-)

So what are your suggestions?  I am open to anything! Well...almost anything!

Thanks for your help!!

Benches in Entries

I love a good bench in an entry room.  It is the first impression someone gets too, right!?  So why not make it special?  I want to make my entry room more "special" and less cluttered too!  There always seems to be an endless pile of shoes on the floor, coats and hats and scarves.  These entries make it seem effortless to keep the clutter contained.  And I love them all.  If only it were that easy though!

So I am drawing inspiration from these pictures.  More pretty.  Less cluttered.  That is my goal!

Christmas 2010

Hi!  I hope everyone had a great Christmas!  I can't believe that it is already done and over with!  Gheesh.  Where does the time go? 

We spent Christmas Eve over at my grandparents and then over at my parents house the remainder of the night.  It is always nice with lots of good food!  We didn't get home till super late, and then were woken up early to see if Santa came.  He did, indeed!  It is always a rush then after that, with showers to take, a house full of torn wrapping paper to clean up and breakfast to start because we have my parents, grandparents and my mother in law over for Christmas brunch.  Every year I tell myself we aren't going to do it- because we can't relax in the morning, but I still do it every year and I love it after it is done!

How was your weekend?  Here are a few of the pictures I took...

And Santa did bring him mind flex and a guinea pig.  He namded is guinea pig "Big Mama".  It is quite cute and pics will come!

Don't forget to enter my give-away..I will run it about a week since only one person (kinda) entered it the other day..... :)

The Christmas Tree Is Up..and Decorated!

Howdy!  How are you today?  I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off this morning.  We have a party to attend to today and I have yet to make my appetizer, wrap my gifts, decide what I am wearing, shower, decide what my husband and child are wearing, feed the animals, and run to the post office.  Oh, and I have about 3 hours to do all this.  Yet, I am sitting her writing on my blog.  Well, I just wanted to show you some pics of the tree. Connor and I decorated it yesterday, after it fell down once.  It is now secured to the window.  I sure hope it does not fall again.  Pine needles were everywhere, including sticking into my toe.  Ouch.

So, here are some pictures.  I realize some are fuzzy...not really sure why.  But you get the idea of what the tree looks like!

I go full color on the tree for some reason.  I do not like a ton of color in my house, but I like it on the tree.  Full and sparkly.  There is no method to the madness, I just throw on the ornaments where I feel like they are needed and voila!

Some pretty vintage ornaments from my good friend!  Love!

So there you have it.  My tree. 

Have a great weekend!

Some Fabulous Christmas Decor Inspiration

While I know many of you are all finished up with your holiday decorating...and enjoying it, there are a few of us *ahem*...that are not.  (me).  So, I thought I would share some wonderful pictures of some of my favorite Christmas rooms around the blogosphere! 

On a good note- we did get a tree last night.  At 9:00.  In the pitch dark.  With a flash light.  It was COVERED, and I mean, covered in snow and ice.  We really couldn't tell what it was going to look like, but I felt bad for the tree farm owner and picked one quick, since he did take us out to the woods at 9:00.  It is up now and melting in the living room.  I have several old towels underneath it, catching the drip.  Oy.  Tomorrow it should be dried out and ready to deocrate!  I will be sure to post some pics!

Anywho.  Onto the fabulous inspiration pics.  I wish I knew where they all came from...I am terrible at that.
But....enjoy them!

Ps....Can you believe that it is almost Christmas????  Wow.

Decorations....Not Yet Done

Wow..sorry about the lack of posts.  I have been sooo busy, not to mention school has been off for a few days due to a severe blizzard in Michigan!  We got more snow in 2 days than I would have ever imagined!  Plus, I am working hard gettting out all of the Christmas orders in my shop! 

But I though I would share just a few snaps of my totally under-decorated house right now!  Ignore the little shots of me in my jammies reflecting in alot of them! :)  Confession- we don't even have a tree yet.  We were going to cut one down on sunday and then the blizzard came.  So, we are getting one tonight.  I am nervous, b/c my husband is doing it solo on his way home from work.  Yikes.  The last time he did that we had a total Charlie Brown tree. 

Anyways..some pics.

Wish me luck on our tree! ;)

Wreaths in Windows

Ok, I've always loved wreaths in windows and these pictures are just soo darn pretty!  I especially love the BIG real wreaths.  They smell so great!  Just a few pics to enjoy- my grandma is on her way to help me sew today!  Then tomorrow we are off for the night to Traverse City.  We used to live there and it will be great to go back, even just for a night!

Trees in Houses.....

Hola'!  So, how was your week?  Mine went by so fast, I barely remember it!  Gheesh!  Connor had a friend come over after school yesterday and stay the night.  They just left and now comes the time to clean up the tornado two youngins can make.  His room is TRASHED!  And, it is snowing!  Lots of snow coming down right now..most of the snow from the other day melted, so it will be nice to have a fresh batch here!

Anyways, onto trees.  Have you seen all the pics around the web with large trees in the house?  I'm not talking Christmas trees.... Some are actually just large branches. I actually happen to love it.  Do you?  Let me know what you think!

Love it?  Hate it?
