but what I like to think of as 'The Blog Bug' struck this weekend!! (You know, all those COOL things you read about on other blogs that just kind of float around in your head and suddenly SURFACE!!) - and The Only way to get rid of 'TBB' is to go with it!!
So, go with it I DID!
(glitters from Studio Stash... I've NEVER glittered before, but always pick them up at bag sales, 'cause somebody is always doing some cool project in Blogland with glitter that I may want to try someday...
Then SUNDAY spent rifling through the stashes...
wreath forms (picked up at sales, just because other bloggers are doing cool stuff with these!)
...and garlands (picked up at sales for the same reasons!)
...and tons of ornaments ('cause they are in GREAT DEMAND in Blogland)
WITHOUT THE NEED FOR A TRIP
A 'Memory Wreath' for Mom & Dad this year, since they haven't put up a tree in numerous years and Mom has been kinda sentimental lately... I picked up ornies I can remember us having on the tree as kids, and that our grandparents had - plus added a copy of Mom's fav. cookie cutter
My version of a 'seaside' wreath... not done, want to add some seashells.
The Beat and Battered... all of these ornies were 1/2 step from the garbage - faded & scratched & Yuk beyond the point of anyone wanting them... perfect for a PORCH wreath that I don't care about!
