Decorating for X-Mas

As you can tell I`m a big Jim Shore Fan.

I was still tired and in pain from Fridays shopping. So I took it easy today and decorated only the Dining Room.I had to remove all my plates from the wall above the french doors because tomorrow my contractor will come to put up my curtain rods and 2 new lights for my studio. Hope that they will not make to much of a mess and I can put up my tree tomorrow night.

Black Friday or my lucky day

Oh yes, more pictures of Fridays shopping trip. This is for my new bath room. I just loved the diamond pattern on the little rugs because it will be the design in the tiled shower. And who does not love to buy towels? I was happy with all my purchases.

More Black Friday Shopping

I washed every thing I bought and divided it into little piles.Both of my sons went and are at Kansas State so a lot  of purple for them .

Black Friday Shopping

I was up at 3 am, had coffee and got ready for shopping. No list but somethings in mind for several gifts.I bought 10 bags of different kind of Harribo Gummibears for my sons girlfriend who is in Tokyo till next spring and a little something for her when she gets back.I was lucky to find some shirts & black pants for myself and Jeans for my husband..3 bags of clothing for my boy`s and a few things for my new upstairs bath room that will be remodeled next year.But on the way home I decided to stop at the Furniture Store  and found a Coffee table that has the same straight lines as my TV console and Couch. The Tray top comes of and can be used for hopefully Breakfast in bed as we used to have before we had kids.

Baking a Reindling

After I got back from the post office this morning I decided to bake. This is a Reindling.A German sweet bread with a Poppy seed filling.After baking melted butter is brushed on and sugar to top it off. It did not only smell good but tasted even better. I cut not wait till it was cooled,oh no I had to taste it right out of the oven.
