Photos of the Week

Enjoying more snow-covered nature...........


Excited for Christmas yet? I'm finally starting to get really excited for it myself- even though I'm still living in my in-law's home and I'm not able to travel to AZ to see my own family.  At least I have my husband home for quite a while.........he got recently lost his job and is on the hunt for a new one. That's stressful, but it has it's perks too.

In some ways I'm glad we're being forced to have a more simple Christmas with fewer presents than usual.  It helps me focus more on what's really important and I've let go of wanting more stuff all the time.

Magnolias and Feathers

Golden Spray Painted Magnolia Seed Pod Christmas Decor: Grow Creative

I saved these magnolia seed pods from our last trip to southern california - ya, about a year and half ago- yikes.  It was time to make something pretty with them!  Hello gold spray paint and girly ribbon!

So the plan is to use these as Christmas Tree Ornaments or a string them up for a Christmas Garland.  It may take me another year-and-a-half to decide which one to make!
