The Wreath, The Dogs, The Tree. AQUA

Tissue Paper scrunched up on my altered wreath

If I showed you the 'before' wreath you'd maybe like it better.
... But this will go nicely with my mantle display ...

Ribbons and Bows and 'where's my treat?'

I know you said we'd get a treat if we went along with this.

(her) "I'm getting really bored."
 (him) " No! we mustn't lose our concentration,
we must keep staring until she gives us a cookie!"

~ See, I can take a photo of the tree without the hounds in front ~
{the 'snow' on the tree?  scrunched up tissue paper}

But the hounds do add a lot don't you think?
{keep scrolling down, there's more decor after the dogs!}

Oh no not this hair bow again, I thought she was done with it.
(keep staring, maybe we'll get two cookies!)

Finally, my solo shot.  What do I get for this great pose?!?

I hope you can't see my pajama-clad reflection

S p a r k l e   J o y

The tree at night.
Do you see the sleeping hound?

Reindeer ( lights ) and Glitter, oh yes!

Close ups of the reindeer's sign,
and below, Christmas carols on the wreath.

May you have a sparkling holiday!

Oh...look how beautiful the tree is with the girls in front of it. It's all so color coordinated...including the hounds. I can't imagine how you got them to sit for so long. Gorgeous!
