I made these and love them................

So after purchasing my new country sampler May 2011 edition and seen Janice's (Stair way to Home) diningroom table with the two topiary trees on them and also a couple other bloggers Linda (Behind my Red Door) and Kimberlee (The Patriot Homeplace) had these trees I really liked them. So I searched on the internet but being from Canada the shipping was going to be ridiculous to purchase them. So I researched them and went over them a couple times thinking they don't look that hard to make really. So on my lunch hour I went to the dollar store to see what I could find and to my surprise they had everything I needed. It cost me under $6 to make them both. The picture doesn't do them any justice. And I think for under $6 they look pretty good. After seeing how Janice tied gingham around the tops that was the perfect way to hide the tape that I needed to attach the greenery to the branches!

It was such an easy project and I am very proud of how they turned out!!!

Well that's it for today I will be back with my hallway makeover as I need to take some pics of it!

Have a great day!

Our New Addition

On Saturday we finally got to go and pick our puppy out and put a collar on her. She is such a doll and was the biggest of the litter. Right now she has blue eyes which I hope stay. She's so chunky and is getting big fast. We have named her Jersey after the Jersey Milk Chocolate Bar!!! Instead she is Jersey a Chocolate Lab. LOL! The kids love her and can't wait to bring her home which is going to be next Wednesday right before Easter

Thanks for stopping by to see our new addition and I will be back with my hallway makeover and some new purchases!

Have a great week!
