of shoving Christmas crap down your throat!
And, yes, I am still going crazy with the photo manipulation.
Sorry. I don't see it ending anytime soon though.
The ever adorable vintage looking Santa from Wal-Fart.
If I ever win the lottery I am going to buy, like, 100 of these and just decorate the crap out of my yard with them.
Dude, I love this Santa.
He usually sticks around for a few months after Christmas because he puts out (Oh, Santa!) the best light.
I'm gonna get really fancy on you here, so hang on ...
My Ghetto wreath.
Scavenged from the side of the street shortly after Christmas a couple of years ago.
See? That photo manipulation is working for me hard now, isn't it?
You can't even tell that this thing is so totally ghetto.
I got some Dollar Tree birds, which are the ghettoest of the ghetto, and put them all over that sucker.
It's actually not half bad in real life.
From a distance.
Look at my circle circle situation.
Now, here's the annual tree dilemma.
How to take a picture of this magnificent metal tree?
Hire a pro, I guess, because I can just never, ever capture the crazy loveliness of this tree.
Y'all informed some years ago that this is called an Ornament Tree.
(As opposed to Christmas trees with no ornaments on them?)
It's designed to show off a collection of fancy ornaments.
Fancy, meaning I bought some some for $2.99 at Savers.
No, really, I am slowly working on getting beautiful ornaments.
I buy one or two each year.
That shit is expensive, y'all.
Anthropologie is my main ornament crackhouse.
I'm going to buy this one today.
$30.00 is ridiculous, I know, but y'all know how I am about ships.
I'll to take more when she's all full, but this is about as good as it gets.
Those big open spaces that look so beautiful in person look gangly on paper.
You'll just have to stop by and see it!
One last extremely fancy and time consuming thing got done yesterday...
Seasonal fruit in a bowl.
(Did you notice my woodsy tablecloth? Target. $10 bucks.)
(Lovely bowl? A gift from my sweet Mama.)
Hope your day is juicy.
Show me some swag, y'all.
