A Great Day For...

Great day for some
 peppermint mocha...snow...and a pink Christmas tree!

A *SNOW*DAY in Tullahoma?  Unheard of...lol...well almost! 
So.....
I thought today would be a good day to get Kennedy's pink tree put up in her room, since I hadn't done that.  Unfortunately, when I opened the box, the tree stand was missing!  Ugghhh!  I got some great ideas from some Facebook friends...most of which I had thought of...but finally decided on how to resolve the dilemma.

First, I packed the base of the tree in a vase...placed the vase in a sweet vintage sewing basket, added some pink eyelet, and a green crochet piece. 

Then added a lace tree "skirt".
I think it turned out pretty CuTe!!!
I debated on whether or not to cover the cute sewing basket.  I thought it was darling without the cover too!  What do you think???

The ornaments on this tree are oh-so-sweet!

Love the little flocked deer!

How cute is this pompom garland!?!

Love the candycane garland, as well!

An angel on top for my angel!

And this is what Kennedy will see when she walks into her room here at Gramma's and Pa's!  I can't wait!

Maggie wanted to check out the white stuff that she spotted out the window, so she headed out to the backyard.

And that white stuff was covering the deck too!

*sniff*sniff*sniff*
"It smells like....like...like *SNOW*!!!  Yippeeeee and Momma gets to stay home with me today!  *Snow*Days* are da bomb!", says Maggie.

My fireplace is aglow...my Christmas trees are twinkling...

so I'm off to sip some peppermint mocha and watch the snowflakes dance.
Snuggle up y'all and stay warm!

Snowy Back Porch Blessings,
Rebecca
