First in a series of posts where I discuss my taste or lack thereof or maybe it’s all in my mouth.
I like this. Really really like it. Proud of the fact most of those presents are wrapped in packaging paper from the shipping box our paper shredder came packed in. The labels – free! Printed from the interwebs & it’s hard to see in the picture all the packages are tied with red and white baker’s twine – which I hunted high and low to get the best deal on. 100 YARDS for $4.90. That tree skirt? That’s the $5 job from Target with about $4 worth of jumbo teal ric rak glued on. Yes glued… I did buy thread to sew it on, but then the whole thing started to smack of effort. As in plugging in the sewing machine was a massive challenge when weighed against popping the top off the fabric glue. My massive stocking investment, $1 stockings – I do/did/kinda sorta/I may get around to it, embroidering in teal Dad, Mom, Winston, and Kitties on them. Good thing Christmas comes every year huh?
(And no those aren’t bugs or dirt on my wall, those are the holes that have been there since I moved in, along with the ass ugly wall color I swore was getting painted over as soon as we moved in. 7 years this June!)
