menu plan monday ~ november 11, 2013

We had a good weekend of Christmas decorating with my sister Genny and middle daughter here to help. We finished the Putz tree, displaying some of the little glitter houses I have made. Genny found the white tree at a thrift shop for $12. The stand was broken, but DH made a box for it. We covered the box with white paper and pale blue tulle printed with silver snowflakes.

Genny also worked on the Twelve Days of Christmas tree on the chalkboard. Still a bit more to do there.

And in the middle of November, Genny found a few violets blooming in the yard. God’s reminder that there will be spring and warmth and sunshine again!

    Thanks, Hilary! We are going to change out the bow topper for a silver glittery star/snowflake shape. My daughter found it and will bring it home tomorrow. We’ll see how it works! The tree is even prettier in person. I love the way it turned out. ~~Rhonda
