Wow, if I won that I could hang it on my bedroom wall and use it as my Christmas tree!! My mother in law lives with us and due to her religion we don't decorate the house. I'd love to have a little tree in my room.

Your little tree is just darling.

One year my Dad went traveling for miles in search of the perfect tree, one he could cut himself. It was beautiful. We decorated it with love. Three days later we removed all the decorations and threw it out - I guess all the animals in the forest liked it too because it smelled like pee! We never let him get the tree again :)

Hope this makes you smile.
You Know You've Had Too Much Christmas Cheer When...

1. You notice your tie sticking out of your fly.
2. Someone uses your tongue for a coaster.
3. You start kissing the portraits on the wall.
4. You see your underwear hanging from the chandelier.
5. You have to hold on to the floor to keep from sliding off.
6. You strike a match and light your nose.
7. You take off your shoes and wade in the potato salad.
8. You hear someone say, "Call a priest!"
9. You hear a duck quacking and it's you.
10. You complain about the small bathroom after emerging from the closet.
11. You refill your glass from the fish bowl.
12. You tell everyone you have to go home... and the party's at your place.
13. You ask for another ice cube and put it in your pocket.
14. You yawn at the biggest bore in the room... and realize you're in front of the hall mirror.
15. You pick up a roll, and butter your watch.
16. You suggest everyone stand and sing the national budget.
17. You're at the dinner table and you ask the hostess to pass a bedpan.
18. You take out your handkerchief and blow your ear.
19. You tell your best joke to the rubber plant.
20. You realize you're the only one under the coffee table.

Your wall hanging is adorable! My son pointed out to me last night that we still have a halloween wall quilt on the wall and we should change it so it would be Christmas (he was thinking altering what was already there--make the witched boots elf boots, change the words to Merry Christmas..things like that.) Might be time--we just had a baby so some Thanksgiving stuff is still out too.

Something to make you smile....I just got back from the dentist. He had to give me a double dose of Novocaine, and as I'm sitting here reading all these great blogs on my computer, I tried sipping coffee but it decided to drool down my face onto my blouse. It's a darn good thing no one was watching! Time to get a clean blouse. :)

Cherise, I love that mini quilt but doesn't everyone know that I am all about "mini" in my life. It is sweet. Thanks for a nice giveaway. Something to make you laugh. Okay, the other day I took my bff to an appointment at a hospital that I am very familiar with, having been going there for nearly 40 years. I got lost in the parking garage and couldn't find my way out. It was hysterical because these other cars just kept following me trying to get out too. LOL
