Working on a Post

Friday, October 16, 2009

Tomorrow is Amanda's birthday, so I am going to extend the drawing for the tree skirt until tomorrow night.
So all comments on this post and the one below will be in the drawing...We may even let "Jack" do the drawing!
...
I was in Hobby Lobby this afternoon and in the next post will show you some pictures of some GREAT ornaments that are GREAT prices, that will make GREAT filler for a SPARSE tree. Now is the time to buy, before all the good buys are gone..
I have loved hearing about your favorite Christmas songs...Tonight I am listening to Mandisa's "Its Christmas", Kenny Loggins, Alan Jackson, Point of Grace and Barbara Streisand. You have probably figured out that I love Christmas music.
I will post the winner tomorrow night....
Have a GREAT weekend.....it's finally getting cool here.

I just bought some ornaments at the Dollar Tree {even included them in my most recent post}. I want to go back and get more. I'd love to see how you use ornaments as "filler", Teresa. I'm hosting the family this year, plus I plan on linking up to some Christmas House Tour parties and would love my tree to look really {really} good.

What a sweet giveaway. We love Christmas music, as well. I need a few more weeks then I will start playing it.
Have to get through more company then it will be ready to start thinking of Christmas decorations. I've used the shopping with company to Christmas shop and have a head start on that, thank goodness.
Have a great weekend.

Last year I thought "we need to replace that old tree skirt!!" So a new one would be a great fall gift!!

Boy, you really have a diverse selection of music going there! I can't wait for the next post. I'm considering a trip to HL and would LOVE to take you along....but I'll settle for lots of your great advice before I go!

My husband and I were in Hobby Lobby on Monday, having a painting framed. After dropping it off, I led Hubs out via the Christmas aisles. He kept looking back and saying, "Come ON!" "What are you DOIN'?!" "Hurry up!" I paid him no mind whatsoever, as I breathed in the sights and smells of the season...AH! Christmas is a'comin' fast!
