Hello December!

Whew -- So long to November!
It  was a bit of a tough month
with Mr. Tennis being ill and having surgery
during Thanksgiving week
Deja vu all over again as last year
at this time he was ill too.
He is on the mend and we are hopeful
for a full and speedy recovery!

Pine cones -- love these!
So, in a rather slow attempt to get some
holiday decorating done,
Maddy and I went to our local Earl May
and put together some
pot-toppers for the outside planters.

It was a DIY day so we nabbed their heavy duty
cutters and went at it.
Glitter and pine cones and embellishments were flying!
We each put one together 
and think we did a fabulous job!
We love to pat each other on the back 
when we accomplish something halfway crafty!

This morning when I picked up the newspaper, I noticed now that 
we've had a bit of snow,
the pot-toppers look even more festive!
Check off part 1 of outside holiday decorating!

I'm sorry about your hubby's string of bad luck! Your pots are amazing and inspiring. Please come do my mine. I wouldn't know where to start. They sit empty and sad right now.
