Been Busy...

...decking the halls and walls with balls and balls and well, enough rhyming. No kidding - I've been decorating maybe more than usual 'cause our lil' house is on the Christmas Home Tour this weekend.
Not really for sure why they asked me - BUT - it is for a great cause - it is a fund raiser for our local Junior Miss program. So even though I'm sleeping like - NONE - I'm happy to be of some help! Anyway, I'll show ya more pics after Sunday.
Till then though - ya know those paper flowers everybody is making - myself included - try making some for your packages. They are so inexpensive but so very pretty. These are for my lime green and blue tree. But do ya want to know how behind I am - they don't even have anything in them - they are "dummy" gifts - ha - I haven't bought the first thing. One thing at a time Cathy... just breathe!


What lil' time I've had to look around - everybody's decorations are just BEAUTIMOUS (that's my word). One of my favorites for inspiration - Cindy over at Cottage Instincts - go and take a gander now - won't ya?
Happy Thursday Friends and Merry Christmas!
Cathy

OH aren't you sweet :) I am tapping my foot over here waiting to see your home all glorified for the tour!

Love your header too...just when I think I love all things white and neutral, I see pretty glittery pastels and go ga-ga.

I have a problem....

Cathy I enjoy reading your blog and look forward to each post. Your home looks beautiful decorated for Christmas I have never seen the paper flowers--perhaps you could do a post on how to make them. Blessings from Iowa!
