    You sure have been one very busy gal last month. Phew. Don’t know how you do it all but you do it so graciously. Every project you tackle turns out great.
    Makes me wonder if I was that busy when I was young with young children. Hope so.
    I have a frame I got at a yard sale about size of ones you used over your bed, think I’ll paint it silver and hang some ornaments from it or some pretty colorful bells I have. Then after the holidays I’ll hang it on the gate my hubs made for over our bed.
    Today I made a garland using a 50′ line of white lights. I had some lame’ fabric I’ve had for years. I saw a garland on a blog made with white muslin strips but decided since I had the copper and silver lame’ I’d use it so it would be little more flashy and cheerful. It turned out really pretty. Since we’re not having a tree this year I thought the garland would be pretty hung from partial wall between kitchen and l/r. Needed some cheer besides what I’d done already.
    Enjoy your blog very much. Happy week

    Love all the projects, Taryn. But I think the Master Bedroom has to be my Favorite!! And of course who doesn’t LOVE to look at yummy pies :)
    Have a great week!
