After trying to love (but still being slightly annoyed with) my Christmas tree, I decided to just go ahead and take off all of those rusty orangish-red bells that I had added to the tree yesterday. It looks better already. Sometimes I think that there is something wrong with my brain.
Ruffly Burlap Garland That Wasn't
After reading this post over at Honey and Maple Syrup I was dead-set on making a ruffly burlap garland for the tree.
Except I only bought one package of garland. Smooshing and bunching fabric to make a ruffle means you need a LOT of burlap garland. Stupid, stupid me. I was in such a rush to get my tree done on Sunday that I convinced myself that twisting the burlap would look just as pretty (when I realized I didn't have enough).
The evil voice in my head is telling me to go to Michaels after work tomorrow and get some more garland so that I can make the beautiful ruffly garland of my dreams. The logical part of my brain is telling me to just leave the tree alone. Hmmmm..................
Technically they're not holiday placemats. They're just regular ones from Pier One. But I'm going to use them for Christmas Eve dinner so now they are the holiday kind. I saved up all of the loonies and toonies that Alex gave me for coffee over the last few weeks so that I could buy them with cash and stash them in the trunk until our big dinner-fest. Note to self: husbands look in trunks for things like car-scrapers. Doh.
