BECAUSE I PROMISED

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

I am so sorry to disappoint you tonight....
We have decorated so many houses, worked what has seemed like more hours than are in a day and decorated SO many trees in the last few days that I am way behind on getting my pictures organized.....There are several houses that I want to do individual posts on. This was what I was afraid was going to happen, but I am not going to let you down....well just tonight..I see a block of a couple of hours tomorrow to work on the pictures. (I hope)!!!!
Today our local Shreveport magazine hit the stands with an article on my business. I was very honored that they gave us a two page spread, but it has caused my phone to ring a few times today and there are just not any decorating dates left. We may can squeeze a few people in, but I am not good at saying NO, so that's where my extra time has gone today...trying to add days to the calendar that don't exist.
I cannot resist posting this picture tonight, as this is one of my houses that was featured in the article (which I had no say in) but we just happened to be doing that house today. And this is the reason this house was featured...this is only a joke, but this was how she served me lunch today.
So after a very long but fun day with one of our favorite ladies!
Lynna we love you!..I am a going to show you just a few little Christmas spots in my house. I don't even have a picture of the Disney tree yet or my main tree. I am absolutely too tired to get off the couch and look for my camera. These pictures are not even very good, but at least you can see my house is a little Christmas village!


I need to add MEGA live garland to this...maybe tomorrow...it is on my front porch, again to tired to put it up tonight....

Anyone that knows me, knows my PASSION is being Grammy. The Magic in Jack's eyes, as he talks to his good friend Mickey ...our front yard aglow with lots of white lights and some of our favorite Disney characters! That is Christmas to me.
Checking out a package at the front door! Look at those
eyes....

Ok...I feel bad....here are a few random pictures from the past few days....you may see them again in an individual post.








I will be back soon with some home tours, more trees and some wreaths.

Linda said...

After seeing your trees I feel like I need to add something more to really give it some pizazz!

I think I will be looking for stuff at Hobby Lobby or somewhere that sells picks or nature stuff, to just stick in-between all of my other decorations to bump it up a notch or two! Thanks for the inspiration!

Love, Linda @ Truthful Tidbits

Hey everyone, it's Shinny Upatree, Teresa's elf sidekick. This past week was jam packed with lots of work but our last house yesterday was WOW!

Teresa went out to the house first to see if I needed to buy any supplies to bring with me. She asked me to go to Red Door Interiors to get the much loved gauzy ribbon for the tree. I have been avoiding this place because it's everything Christmas I love and I can't have it. So when I went into the store I put my blinders on and went straight to the gauzy ribbon. I started pulling the rolls one by one and stacking them high, all the while a very distinguished looking woman was trying to figure out why I needed so much of this stuff. She finally said to me, "You look like you know what to do with this ribbon, so tell me what you use it for." I explained I was a tree decorator headed to a job and gave her a few hints about the gauzy ribbon. I also told her to read about Teresa in our SB Magazine who did a great article last week with photos of some fabulous trees.

I was glad to get out of the store without buying anything for me, but know a trip to the Red Door is definitely in my future. Teresa, don't send me in there ever again. I may not come out!
