That Ho, Ho, Ho Kind Of Spirit

I'm so excited!  It's 45 degrees outside and, although not in my neighborhood, it snowed nearby today!  Yes, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The cold weather and the mention of snow put me in a Ho, Ho, Ho kind of spirit so after I did a little on-line Christmas shopping at Macy's (using the FABULOUS savings code "macysff" and receiving 25% OFF PLUS FREE SHIPPING on orders of $99 and up!) I ran up to my neighborhood MJ Design's and grabbed a couple of $3.99 Christmas floral bunches came home and got a little crafty!

Now, you remember that $5.95 Southern Living bucket I bought at the junk store a few months back?  Well, I disassembled the fall arrangement I put together back then, clipped the Christmas floral bunches apart and made like an elf.  Ta-da!  What do you think?

Tonight, when the Senor gets home, he is going to once again brave the attic steps and bring down the trees and all the trimmings.  Tomorrow, I deck the halls!

Sounds great to me !!! I am not decorating this year because my hubby (well, he will be in 18 days) and I are redoing our house so there is no use putting things up just to take them down before Christmas. Thanks for blog hopping. Feel Free to follow me.

Very nice and festive arrangement. I hope you are enjoying this run-up to the holiday season.

Visiting from SITS. Also? I love your blog banner!

Have a great week!

Great job on your arrangement! I can make just about anything, but have no eye for floral arranging so I intensely admire anyone who does! Snow? In order for me to see that, I have to travel to another state, but it sure would put me in the holiday spirit! (ok, I'm already there, I just turned down the thermostat!! LOL)

You've got a great start on your decorating already with your new arrangement! Will be fun to see the rest... Have a good night!

What a cute bouquet! Christmas always makes me wish I were craftier than I am... but with this year's budget I might just get my wish!

Thanks for stopping by!
