I was NOT in the mood to decorate for the Holidays this year. For some reason I just couldn't get into it and I refuse to do things that I'm just not feeling because I know that whatever I'm attempting to work on, just won't come out right.
And then the leopard print ribbon happened!!
I was at Steins standing near the ribbon with my daughter and my Mom while they happily and excitedly looked at holiday decor. I was bored.....and then the leopard ribbon said to me, "Psssst!! Kelle....wouldn't I be a fun and sassy touch for your boring tree???"
"Hmmmm.....depends on how much you cost. What kind of a deal are we talkin?"
It said "I'm 20% off and I'm already on CLEARANCE!!"
I looked around as if there would be a sudden swarm of leopard print ribbon lovers and hurriedly swept up three rolls!! They were only $4.50 for a 10ft roll!!
I think I'm one step closer to my dream tree!!!
Barbie really knows how to decorate a tree! Why not pull out some of your fancy shoes from the closet and use them as ornaments?!? You might think that's just totally insane, but you know what?? Barbie would.
I love the combo with my hand painted Indian ornaments
Especially with this pink one!
I'm not showing the whole tree because I can't find our tree skirt AND because my daughter keeps "decorating" the lower half of the tree! :) I just found one of her headbands on a branch this morning....no one knows what could be next! Maybe some real Barbies that will most likely be naked or wearing their clothes backwards.
So there you have it....a Kelle Dame kind of tree! All I need now are some more Barbie ornaments, some vintage pink ornaments, and some pearly white lights and maybe some fancy old spoons and chandelier crystals!! Now I'm getting in the spirit!!
Were you feeling the Holiday decorating "meh's" or were you more than excited?
I'll keep you posted if I have any other conversations with ribbon or other craft supplies.
