What's Up With My Lights?!!

After packing and moving everything across country this past summer, I am unpacking my Christmas decorations. I really don't know what's up, but we seemed to have a ton of lights that no longer work!! ARGH!! Talk about frustrating! Oh well, enough venting! Abby is still very interested in helping with the decorations. She decided that garland makes a very cool hiding place! Rachel helped this past weekend with the outdoor lights, and I just finished the front entry.
I got this HUGE wreath at Big Lots! for $22, then I set to work embellishing it with more pinecones, hydrangea, roses, berries, pears and a big red bow.
These darling topiaries are from Home Depot. I had my eye on them for awhile, and when they recently went on sale for $55, I snapped them up! For that price, you couldn't make them! And they even came with the lights already on. Yay, no lights to mess with!
The garland around the door is the one Abby was hiding in. I had to put new lights on it and then I hot-glued pinecones and finished with another red bow.
Tomorrow...the tree!! It's been cold here in Tennessee, with snow flurries yesterday. It was so pretty. Today it's sunny and tomorrow it's going to be near 60 degrees. Maybe I can get those wreaths hung on my outside windows...
How is everyone doing on their decorating? I think I'll go have a peppermint mocha and put my feet up!
Hugs,
Victoria Lynn

Hi Victoria....your decorations are all so pretty. I love the Big Lot wreath, great price too.
Abby looks adorable hiding in the garland.
I hate messing with Christmas lights that don't work. I got to where I will just go buy new ones rather than get so stressed out with the messed up ones. Don't have the patience, I guess.
Your red door looks perfect.

Hi Vicki

I've got to get going on mine. I am a lay butt and I can't stand myself sometimes.

I'll probably get out this weekend and shop around for goodies.

Ciao
