Good Morning!!! Whew! This Christmas decorating is kicking my Be-Hind! I woke up late yesterday AND today!!! SOOOOOOORY!!!
Yesterday was ALL about the Staircase Tutorial ( which, by the way, i will now be refering to ALL TUTORIALS as "Tutes"....Got that one from my Super DARLIN friend, Carrie, over at Dittle Dattle! TUTE! CUTE! And WAAAAAY easier to type, FO SHO!
Today im gonna show a few Highlights of the staircase TUTE from yesterday ( Im getting a lot more viewings of my blog, and want the newcomers to see and know they can go back to see the TUTE!) I have a feeling im going to be OVERUSING that word, TUTE! Too CUTE! SO...For those of you that are catching me today, there is a very LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG TUTE of decorating a staircase from yesterday...so CHECK IT OUT!
Im also going to throw in a bit of the TUTE (Thank you Carrie! LOVE THAT!) of decorating my Living room tree...The one thats driving me NUUUUTS because its not my 10 footer (That would be the Tree with the WORST CASE of "Lights out Disease"!!!!!) So I had to steal the 7.5 footer from my sons room....Sorry Bubba....Mommy LUUUUVS you SO MUCH!
Then the Newest pics are from my Dining room tree...You remember...the one I find it NECESSARY to put up in the front windows for TOM! Its VERY IMPORTANT to have that tree for TOM! You know Tom...hes the one that likes to PEEP in our windows...and BOOOOOOOYEEEEE do i cater to him! Tom can see it from the street! I will show you that view again tomorrow! YEPPERS! I went OUTSIDE and into the STREET to make sure that TOMS TREE was Lookin Gooooooooood!
