gather round and listen..
How LAME am I?
I couldn’t resist. You know that you were thinking exactly what I just typed.
Don’t deny it.
It’s ok, no judgment here. If you like Vanilla Ice-I still love you!
I “iced” my house this past weekend.
You know, added some silver, white and fabulous FroZeN accessories!
Christmas décor had to be put away, but the house always looks a little empty when you take everything down.
So, I have January décor. I know..I know..
remember, no judgment here.
I found these super cute penguins at the DI a couple years ago. I LOVE them! Even my kids were a little excited when they saw that the “fat penguins” had made their yearly appearance.
I added some snowflakes, flocked trees and “snowballs” made out of lion yarn. I have an addiction to this stuff. I am all about the texture and this stuff keeps me smiling!
I filled 2 of my apothecary jars with some fun icing as well.
One has silver tinsel and the other has this funky, white, branchy stuff. I got it for 75% off at shopko.
I used some silver and white ornaments to keep the white branches in place.
I know what you are thinking. Who uses tinsel?
I loved the shimmer and of course, the texture!
You know that you want to go out and try to find some tinsel now.
Lets just see it was CHEAP!!
These too were found at the thrift store. Not by me though, my fabulous friend found them for me.
She is one of those golden friends-the kind that when she finds something at the DI that she knows I will love, she gets it for me.
Yes-it is so totally awesome that I have a friend who loves to thrift AND shares her treasures!!
I used my crocheted wreath also found at the thrift store. This fabulous wreath made it’s first appearance during Christmas.
So, I also added a beaded and silver ornament that I got for 75% off.
(I so didn’t need it, but that is beside the point)
So now you all know how I “iced” my house.
Hopefully I inspired you to add some “icing” to your house!
See you at the thrift store!!
PS-In case any of you were worried about me and my ridiculous obsession with mint M&M’s. My very sweet friend is sharing one of her bags with me! Excited is an understatement! And no, I am so NOT sharing!!!
