It is sunny and bright here, although my camera doesn't quite catch it, and it is not like winter at all.
So this morning I am sharing some festive color with you.
We are getting ready for the Ladies Bible Class, where we always have teatome afterward.
If some day you want to come to the Ladies Class, you may do so on Skype by contacting me first.
Also, if you need personal encouragement in your life as homemaker, I would be happy to start a Skype class for that. I also teach a class that began in the 1970's by Gwen Webb, called Training Up a Child, which is by far best teaching I have ever heard. It outclasses anything written since then!
Please click the contact tab on the left and let me know if you would like to have a class. It can be limited to just a few sessions, or it can go on longer.
God bless you all.
Skinny trees are very much in demand these days, as they fit nicely in corners and do not take up so much floor space. I have admired the ones at Hobby Lobby but did not want to spend the money or accumulate too many seasonal things. Many years ago when Walmart had layaway, I got this pre-lit artificial tree, but have not enjoyed using it because it requires shifting furniture around to make room for it. This year as I pulled out the box in which it came, it occured to me that the box was quite thin for such full branches. The tree was always squashed down to fit in the skinny box, so I discovered there was already a skinny tree--I just did not fluff out the branches. Maybe you have a skinny tree in your collection, too!
Since the tree was already quite old, I felt I could alter it a bit, so I took it outside and spray painted the outer part with flat white paint, which also covered the lights, giving them a softer glow when plugged in. To eliminate any leftover paint oder I got some of those pine scented ornaments. I am really enjoying this much better this year, as it did not require so many ornaments. Arent those cameo ornaments nice? They are plastic, from Walmart.
I do have a small tree which my grandchildren decorated. I pressed the wired tree limbs downward to make another skinny tree, and also spray painted the flocking on this one. Those cute skate ornaments are from Dollar Tree, two for a dollar.
