On a completely different note.........

Did you know that Christmas is just over 7 weeks away???!!!!

i don't know how it happened.... BUT Sir who is the world's BIGGEST Grinch.. took me Christmas shopping two weekends in a row............

The first weekend i bought a blue Danish Christmas candle... and as i walked through the shop i found napkins to match the pattern on the candle..

and wrapping paper to match the pattern..

and balls for the tree to match the pattern !!!

The theme for this year's Christmas was decided... it will be blue and white !!!

Now i realize that i am gonna need one heck of a lot of blue decorations to decorate the house in ONLY blue and white........ and not a whole lot of money to do it.........

Youngest daughter and i were reminiscing about the Christmases we used to have when she was little.. how our "themed" Christmases always meant everyone got involved in making decorations... she kinda winced at the memory but i chose to ignore it.. it was fun i say .. FUN !!!

So......... i have a plan........... i am going to start making Christmas decorations in blue and white of course.......... i am gonna make Christmas cards - in blue and white of course... i am going to fill my spare time with blue paper and white paper and loads of glue and sparkles and get ready to turn this house into a blue and white Christmas miracle............

i already started .. briefly.. this weekend to create woven baskets from Denmark.. in blue and white of course..........i have plans to make stars from Germany too....

Why am i doing this now?? why am i even thinking about this now???!! Because Sir is going to be as busy as a one armed paper hanger for the next lil while........ and i need to find something to fill my empty hours.. to fill the weekends while He recharges His batteries.. because.. as my grandmother used to say.. "idle hands are the devil's play things".......

and because ... i LOVE Christmas !!!
