Ho Ho Hope

I can't believe it's the first day of December already. Insane. Time is moving so fast for me right now, it seems. And yet, as always, I'm walking in a big circle. Progress needs to be made.

Speaking of big circles...

I decorated a new wreath for the door last night. I gave myself a limit of $15 for the wreath and all the bits and bobs to put on it. I'm proud to say, I came in under the wire at $11.

And here she is:

And there she shall stay, gracing the entrance to Chez Merde, until the first week in January. If it would just stop raining long enough for me to loop the twinkle lights around the balcony, I'd have my tiny white light show going, too. Right now, though, my fingers wouldn't stay warm (or dry) enough for me to finish it all. Maybe this next weekend...

To my friends in the United States, I hope you had a lovely Turkey Day. I was fortunate to be with great friends and have a great feast. (And none of us had to cook! Huzzah!)

I will aim to post more over December, but I have several deadlines this month, and my brain will be drained until just before Christmas.

Cheers to you all from rainy Maryland.

I love the wreath. Nice job!

I love it, but I am pretty sure this means you won't be buying a $25 balsam wreath from me, huh?

*cries a little*

It makes me smile to see this joyous wreath:) Hand made, even.

I want to put up a wreath, but I haven't come across a wreath hanger yet. In time!

Beautiful wreath!!! (3-exclamation point beautiful even.) I love the silver - hey, I think that's worth another exclamation point!!!!
