Yes…in my mind…it’s still fall. It’s already December 3 and that means our Christmas season is near.
Surgery left some complications that seem to keep me taking two steps back and only one small step forward.
PLUS it’s been two months since I’ve been able to post or comment at so many of my blog friends. I’ve played with a few vignettes… some completed some not! My creative spirit was willing but my body wasn’t!
Nothing special here…so I won’t be getting any “feature” that’s for sure…unless of course someone has a blog party for unfinished projects…hmmm that would be interesting!
So let me share a few of my photos with you…
This is the one fall vignette that was finished…
The stain glass window was the centerpiece for the vignette. My Mom lived with me for about 6 years and the stained glass window was hers. I forgot it was down in the dungeon (basement) when I pulled it out covered with dust bunnies.
Mr. Charmer cleaned it off and secured it in the corner for me. The stain glass colors, blue, brown, green and blue, complimented the fall season. The lampshade was wrapped in burlap just like I did last year for the Fall Burlap Lampshade. Next the lampshade was wrapped with the Fall banner I made to hang in my antique mall booth. I “tied” the banner around the shade using twing and added the small pumpkins to the bottom with hot glue. The final touch was adding the faux flower using Dollar Tree leaves.
Everything in the vignette was used in last year’s also. Very simple and the stain glass helped me know Mom was still near.
The fall vignette above my bookcase was never completed. I placed with it but never got around to “finalizing” it.
I don’t put my runner down until I have my vignette near done and there was so much tweaking that I still wanted to do. Just not exactly there is it? I did enjoy looking at it through.
I worked on our Fall buffet vignette and somehow can’t find a photo of it! So goes the fall decorating for me!!!
If you were sitting here you would see Mr. Charmer giving me dirty looks…you see there are Christmas decorations all over the place. I’ve been working on the buffet vignette for days…and I’m getting no where!
This is only 1/4 of our holiday stash!
Honesty I’ve been working on this vignette for over 3 days and am NOT making any progress. I am stumped!
