and then taking down. Just about finished returning a few trees and ornament boxes to the attic. The pierogis have to be made this week! Stuffed cabbage can wait a little while. Mark has been washing walls, baseboards, windows, and giving everything a good cleaning. I did that twice a year but since mom passed, I haven't. I keep saying that since we are redecorating and painting, we should just wait. He said he's tired of waiting years for me to find a willing contractor or decide on a paint color. He doesn't understand why it takes years to pick out a beige.
My latest thing is adding the hand forged hooks of various size to my interior doors. I can hang my stitchery, drieds, wreaths, gourds, baskets, and because of the hook rather than a nail, the item won't fall off when I slam the door. Why haven't I done this sooner? So I brought out the hook assortment and installed them, love it. I like the longer one that the folded greenery spray is on. But the shorter ones are nice too. Even if nothing is hanging, the black hook looks nice with my black iron knobs, but I have plenty of hanging smalls and sampler sacks to display.
One of two 3' sturdy branched trees that can take heavy ornaments. One was Patti's and as I was thinking about that little tree that we bought (and we got the last ones), her husband showed up in my driveway. He pulled the little tree from the car and asked if I wanted it. YES!!! She loved that tree and preferred the crooked trunk one to my straight one. These and the same tree in 4' were hidden in a clearance section and we were thrilled to find them. The bottom branches need repositioned. I think it fell over when Mark was cleaning.
Sprigs make me happy.
I just typed "have a great weekend" and then Curse of Oak Island came on the tv and I realized it was only Tuesday. I need gutchies that have the day on them to help me out. Do they make them in big girl white cotton old lady panties?
Have a great mid -week!
Thanks for visiting.
