Christmas Blues

I wanted to share more inexpensive decorating that I did
in my office this week.  Just another "touch of
Christmas" ~ barely noticeable and only $2.


The large hutch in my office is part of the furniture I collected for
a lake house we almost bought.  It was one of the things I couldn't
bare to part with and now holds many of my beach-theme items
and decorating books.


I bought the white snowflakes at Dollar Tree ~ all 6 for $1
and the blue snowflakes were half-off at JoAnn's and
came to $1 for all 3.


I hung them with invisible thread that I taped onto the backside of
the hutch head board.


They look as if they are floating in space and give the hutch a
subtle transformation of snowy sparkle and softness.




I'm linking with Smiling Sally for Blue Monday.

Hi lovely,

That's a great idea to use invisible thread or the snowflakes! Now why didn't I think of that!!?

I bought some of the white snowflakes to embellish my packages but I think they need to be repurposed. Cool idea.

Hi again Cindy,

I tried to email you but it came up with a 'no reply' address!

I think I definitely will do a post on how to make a button. It was a total nightmare for me to work out so I'd like to make it easier for other people!

I'm going to do it after Christmas but if you need a hand before then, then do give mne a shout!

I'm almost positive that I have some fun snowflakes around here somewhere. Now, I want to figure out a place to dangle them.

Maybe by MY desk. They have such a happy look.
