On a regular basis, I asked myself if I am making the right decisions.
Is the pink cardigan too girley-girley for a woman almost 50 years old? If I skip breakfast, can I eat an extra taco at lunch.
You know....life decisions. There are decisions that impact you in small ways.
Decisions that impact your whole family.
Decisions that make a huge difference in your life.
Then, there are those decisions you make, that makes you question your sanity - even when you are in the process of moving forward with your decision.
What might this most dramatic decision be?
I decided to create a mini snow village this year.
I had four small ceramic houses I have had for years. You have probably seen similar ones at the Dollar Store. They hold tea lights in the back.
Problem is, I could only find two of the four.
Well, it would be a mini-mini snow village.
So I gathered my large cake plate. (Okay, its really my Mama's. She left it here on Thanksgiving when she bought her famous Mayonnaise Cake.) I also gathered up two cloches and stands. And here is where the simple decision of creating a mini-mini snow village went wrong.
Or, could go wrong.
I decided my mini-mini snow village under glass needed snow. Faux snow. But, not just any faux snow. Faux snow with GLITTER!
Needless to say, my LR looks like a virtual glitter factory explosion. And to make matters worse,
the boys (aka The Glitter Destroyers) will be coming over for dinner tomorrow night.
I already know Glitter Faux Snow will be one decision I will regret. For months to come. :)
While I was at it, I decided that if a little Glitter Faux Snow was good...a lot was even better.
I added more here...
Cause you can't have mercury glass candle holders on a white plate without faux snow right?
I mean, who does that?
Here is the culprit that started all of this Glitter Faux Snow Mini-Mini Snow Village Under Glass.
This evil pillow. With the sparkly snowflake.
It lead to Wintry-white branches with mini silver and clear ornaments.
Cause once you start that whole mini-mini snow village scene, the rest of the room should follow right?
Oh well, I may truly regret this decision when my little Abominable Snowbabies arrive tomorrow,
and when it comes time to clean up in January...
Y'all see my Goodwill Sweater "Snowball" Wreath hanging in the window?
Here is a close-up just after I completed it.
Now all I need is some Winter weather. This 70+ degree NC weather is playing havoc on my mini-mini snow village. :-D
Would you like to win a pillow like the one I have on my DR Hearth when I shared my Woodland Mantel?
A lucky winner will be chosen to receive a pillow. All you have to do is leave a comment below. That's it. :) I will announce the winner on Monday!
How is your week going? My thoughts and prayers go out to all those caught in those fierce storms these past few days.
