First of all, I have been trying to work on the comment reply notification and I think I found on the dashboard where that area is, but it only allows me to set it up to put my email in to get reply notifications. I didn't see anything that offered plug ins?!? I will continue to work on it and may need to email a fellow blogger pal for more specific directions. I've done searches on how to set this up for blogger but still no luck. I won't give up though and I will prevail! Lol Then email subscription is next. Stay tuned...
But what I wanted to share today was some fun we had yesterday with some holiday moments. Let the season begin!!
After school I picked up my daughter and her friend and we went to our public library for some after school fun. The Girls played checkers and browsed through all kinds of fun books and picked out a big pile! The library was all decorated for Thanksgiving and I love their "forever tree". They always have it there and decorate it for every season. Right now of course it's full of late Fall goodies...scarecrows, leaves, little paper turkeys and gourds. So cute!
FYI - took these photos on my phone so hopefully still pretty clear. Earlier in the day my mother-in-law and I went over to my mom's to help her put up her tree and get the rest of her Christmas decorations up (she had already started a little). We shared a nice cozy soup and sandwich lunch and then got to work! My Mom lives in an adorable duplex apartment and so she doesn't have tons of space. Her tree is just the right size for her living room. My Mom and I came up with this fun color scheme tree a couple of years ago. She really wanted a white tree and wanted lots of blue and teal kind of accents. We chose to make it kind of botanical with a leaf garland and poinsettias and hydrangeas to accent it. Also bulb and snowflake ornaments and soft pastel lights. Very girlie but we love it!
I'm not sure why this collage turned out smaller, but I think if you click on it - it will show up larger. I wanted to show a little closer detail of the decorations on my mom's tree. She has a nice cozy chair to sit and read by the tree with a pretty angel pillow I had given her. Love a little nook like that. I had come up with the ideas to do hydrangeas on the tree (love them!) by breaking apart some artificial ones and hot glueing them on to some clips that I had glued onto little pieces of felt. We talked about looking for some pretty birds (maybe white?) to add to the tree with some kind of fluffy feathers on them.
So the holidays are starting to enter my world and thoughts a lot more these days! Deck the Halls...fa la la la la!!
