Wow! What a whirlwind this Holiday season has been!
Incorporating blogging into my daily life, at this time of year, was a real eye opener for me. The fast pace of posting, linking and visiting, to share, keep in touch and make new friends sure was a challenge....damn you seasoned blogger's are GOOD!
So, not to be one to miss out on an opportunity to share my talents, LAST NIGHT, I decided to take on the task of creating a New Year's Eve Fireplace and Mantle.
Our plans to spend a few days with our best friends fell through so, we are now staying home to celebrate with one very special lady...my husband's, beautiful and very elegant, 90 year old, Mom!
As I mentioned, at the start, this was a very last minute creation... it kind of just happened as I "putzed" along and gathered most of my finds from around the house. One quick trip to my nearby dollar store completed the scene to my content.
Here's the whole "sh-bang!"
This golden, glitz candle was a very special gift and was the beginning of my theme of
"New Year's Eve Glitz."
"Grandma's" watch adorns a festive, party hat!
Golden glitter candles with some extra "glam"...gotta have the bling!
Dollar store "poppers" that I wrapped in gold glitter and personalized with letters for a special touch!
A little something" special inside the fireplace, too!
So, another year has passed...another year ahead to look forward to. I hope that, you, my loved ones and friends will all stay healthy, be happy, find true love and gain financial improvement and have much success with whatever you may do!
Now, I've got major Holiday packing to do...will post pics of my mess, soon!
Then I promise to be back, next week, with a winter mantle re-do...'til then I need a nice, much needed break!!!
Love, Hugs and Kisses,
Joining these wonderful party hosts @
