Save Thanksgiving!


source

Yes, let us save Thanksgiving.  After all, it is the holiday where we stop and says thanks for the blessings in our lives.  I am with Nordstrom, take it one holiday at a time.  Why the rush for Christmas already?  Actually that is a question that I asked back in August when I first saw the Christmas decorations on store shelves.  Really?

It irks me that Thanksgiving is pretty much skipped over and that most, if not all, autumn and Thanksgiving merchandise is already on clearance.  The only good thing about that is that you can get your turkey and fall leaf decor at a great price.  I mean, again, Thanksgiving is about being thankful for many reasons and retailers are telling us to ignore it and concentrate on Santa.  Oh that's another pet peeve of mine.  Retailers shove Christmas down your throat starting in late summer yet quickly shut'er down come December 26.  Wrong.  Christmas is not over until January 6th.  That is when I stop celebrating and then take my tree down on January 7th.

I know I am not the only that is irked and bother by this.  RespecttheBird on Twitter even started the appropriate hashtag #savethanksgiving.  The radio station 105.1 Jack FM out of Kansas has also started their own coalition.  Good for them! Really, I can't be the only one that feels this way.  Yes, I have started my Christmas shopping but not the decorating.  It is not time.  I am still enjoying my pumpkins, fall leaves and all things turkey decor and food.  I am saving Thanksgiving.  Who's with me?  :)

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.



I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

Supplies:
2 - round floral vases 1 - sponge brush Mod Podge 1 - small jar of white glitter 2 - sheets black felt w/glitter scissors craft or felt glue 2 - lids from food canisters (like oatmeal) …

Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:


It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…

Organized Linen Closet... Finally!

Hi peeps.  Are y’all done decorating for fall yet?  No? Oh wait that's just me.  My decor is going up little by little as the hubs grudgingly brings more Fall/Halloween totes down from the attic.  heehee.
I do however want to show off (‘cause that’s what happens in blog land) my now neat and tidy linencloset thanks to this pin on my Organization board from Better Homes & Gardens that helped me get'er done.  Ta-da!



It is a small closet in my short and narrow hallway so taking full length photos of the before and after was a challenge.  But believe me you this thing was way too crowded and stuffing clean towels into each shelf was just plain dumb.  There was too much going on in there especially with the ball caps and candles taking up valuable space on one shelf.  So just like my utensil drawerlarge utensil drawer, and junk drawer I got to work.  As I told you in my last post, I got the caps out of there and hung up in the coat closet. 
I then emptied out the entire closet a…
