I love to decorate for Christmas. It seems every year it gets earlier and earlier. Last weekend I attended several open houses in my area and bought a few things! The Ace hardware around here does a pretty good Christmas shoppe. One of the coolest things I have been working on is my daughters tree for her room. This past year we spruced up her decor to include a new duvet cover from you guessed it.... Pottery Barn. We thrifted a few things like her $30 velvet green couch from Goodwill. And we crafted some stuff like her large cardboard initial on her wall (modge podge and wrapping paper). But this tree brings all of her colors together so well. Black with white polka dots, hot pink and of course green! Love it. Still trying to work with the black glam rope stuff. Every time I go in there I fiddle with it...

I have mentioned my yard in only one other post. But working in my yard is absolutely one of the things I love to do. Its great exercise, gets me outside, uses my creativity etc. But I fluctuate on how much time I can/do spend out there. Usually by the heat of summer I'm over the digging, tilling, transplanting and focus on watering. By fall I'm OVER ALL of it. Fall is a great time to transplant plants however so on to my post. I have begun the annual dividing and moving of the hostas. I have probably one hundred hostas and some of them are BIG.
