Questionable Taste Part 1

First in a series of posts where I discuss my taste or lack thereof or maybe it’s all in my mouth.

Exhibit A:

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!)

    I think blue and red are a fabulous colour combo! And all the better to see it on your white tree!

    LOL Well I have to say I really like it too. :o)

    Looks great to me. And further ahead in being ready for the holidays. I still have decorations in boxes all over the place. *sigh*

  7. Valerie says:

    Yea, I like it too! It’s fun and festive!

  8. Cindi says:

    Love it! And just think of the recycling you did with the packing paper! I think it looks great!

  9. Debbie says:

    I love your tree and love how you wrapped all the presents! There’s nothing better than recycling! And about the wall – I’ve got those too – almost 6 years and counting.

  10. Mary Jane says:

    I don’t see anything of questionable taste there! I think your white tree and coordinated packages look great! Now if I could just get some paper around the boxes I have half hidden back here by the computer…

  11. JenJen says:

    Your posts always put a smile on my face. I like it too – a lot. Cool beans. 🙂 And I would never have noticed those holes in the wall had you not pointed them out. Had to scroll back up to see what you meant. Guess I was just too taken with the tree and packages. 🙂

  12. Joyce says:

    ROFL!!! I think it’s a job well done! Save the planet, safe lots of money…. who can complain about that? 😀

  13. Gracie says:

    as usual you bring a smile to everyone’s face….love the white tree..

  14. Silverlotus says:

    lol! Well, your tree certainly is different than what I put up, but if you love it, than that is what is most important.

    Merry Christmas!

    I love the white flocked tree! Want one! I have a regular green big tree and a little green aluminum tree. Neither has ornaments on it yet. I have squirreled away gifts, but none are wrapped. I like the idea of the brown paper. I’m thinking of getting some butcher-type paper (thanks to you) and rubber stamping it and maybe doing something with glitter and twine. We’ll see if I can get my butt out of this chair.

  16. TerriBoog says:

    LMFAO! I LOVE the white tree but am particularly fond of the wrapping paper. Check out my latest post – we have a lot in common as far as wrapping goes! Well done, I say!

  17. Sara says:

    I think it looks great! And now I don’t feel so bad that there are nails/nail holes in my living room walls that have been there since we moved in 4 years ago:)

  18. I like it! Then again, I’m also a woman of questionable taste, especially in men. 😛

  19. Christine says:

    “I did buy thread to sew it on, but then the whole thing started to smack of effort.”

    lol! You are my hero! The whole thing looks fantastic!

  20. Cheryl says:

    Seriously, I love you. I want to be the you that can rock things so well so effortlessly. I need to post a pic of Diva’s white/pink/silver/bling, stereotypical Southern redneck tree. It will make you feel really good about yourself.

  21. Daffycat says:

    Very festive and the wrappings on the presents coordinate perfectly with each other!

  22. Gabi says:

    LOL. Love reading your blog. And I like your wrappings too. 🙂
