Kids Getting Terrible Presents For Christmas

Thursday, January 5, 2012

 I don't know whether to laugh or cry for theses kids! Some of the reactions were funny, but when some of them cried,  I felt really bad for them. There was one little boy who was so happy that he received a potato! He was so darn cute! Apparently this was something that Jimmy Kimmel had asked parents, to prank their own kids with a gift they would hate so that a video could be made of the outcome. Maybe you just have to have a sense of humor.

Winter Decorating with Pinecones

Tuesday, January 3, 2012
I have a very large bag of pinecones and I think I might display them around my house for the winter. I love the way they look and have found a few ideas that I really like at Better Homes and Gardens. You can click your way through and check them out. These are the ones I like.


These were painted to show off their texture. I have a nice oval wooden bowl I could display mine in.


Pinecone trees!! Love these!! The ones that stand alone in the little terra cotta pots are adorable! There are instructions for these.





Simple beauty!




These pinecone candlestick holders are adorned with small gold beads at the tips.




Pinecone curtain tiebacks.

You are Multicolored Lights

Your holidays are a time for cheer and excitement.
You love so much about the holidays, and everyone perks up a little from your happiness.

You try to be grateful for what you have this time of the year.
Even if things have been tough, you can't help but be joyful.
