It's a pink Christmas
Er, doesn't everyone do pink? It's just so, colorful.
I have to admit, I didn't even consult the men in my life about this, but I figure Drew can pile the mail up next to whatever color tree I choose.
Note the flamingo wire sculpture holding the poinsettia. I am watering the flowers, but they are dropping leaves like crazy already. It'll be a Charlie Brown Poinsettia.
The flamingo came from a home show one year. Imagine, DH toting it around the whole convention center while we looked at a thousand roofing or siding displays. Actually people stopped us and asked which booth it came from.
Hey, Sherri D, look where the flamingo tin showed up! This was a gift from my friend Sherri blog is here
You've seen the pink poodle, but the squirrel is Cole's and I'm not sure how he feels about my use of it. The squeaker still works after all.
The tree needs a cute little quilted skirt.
Do you know any quilters?
The hearts came from IKEA one year by the way. You just never know where you'll find a treasure. We also found the hanging light display, you can just see it hanging on the wall next to the stairs, at IKEA one year. We leave it's cheerful self up all year, and it makes the best ever night light. I dread the passing of these bulbs as like so many things, it is no longer available.
Last but certainly not least was this Christmas display seen in the 'hood last weekend. I am a nut for flamingos so this caught my eye.
