When I came home from my month long visit to Christy's, my sweet sister had the house ready for Christmas. It was so nice to come home to a festive, holiday-ready house. But, my old fake tree has been lacking a tree skirt or something to hide the ugly metal stand. Gifts used to hide it but the changes in our lives often mean that gifts are shipped or put into boxes that are taken to kids' homes to be opened there. So, this morning I decided to do something for our house. The tree now has a pretty crate to sit in and we'll have another box to store ornaments and things when it's time to put everything away! Scraps, stain, paint smeared on-done.
I'm happy-ho, ho, ho!
