Day late Dollar short

I have no earthly idea how to do this. There’s a popular, well read blogger who is hosting a Christmas open house. Yesterday. So, I decided to do it, today. I threw in a few fun decorating ideas for those of you who aren’t as creative as moi.

Here’s a great one. Hang a Christmas tassel on your toilet. Tres chic.

Another mind boggler. Please don’t leak this to Martha Stewart. I’m trademarking it.

It’s Christmas. Say it with love. And holly.Don’t forget to decorate your trash.


  1. I LOVE your living room! What a unique star! Could you tell me where you found it?

  2. Great article. I am dealing with a few of these issues as well.

  3. May I simply say what a relief to find someone that actually understands
    what they are discussing on the net. You definitely
    understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people really need to check this out and understand
    this side of your story. I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you surely have the gift.

  4. Okay, Mrs. Nester Myquillyn Smith, I am having so much fun reading your archives. I just went to as early as I could find and have laughed so much. And your pictures are imperfect the way mine are right now – so encouraging! Hope you’re having a lovely day…
