Looking like Christmas ::: Coffee Filter Topiaries

 I want to take just a moment and thank all of you that take time to hang out with me from time to time...it has been a fun journey thus far and I am enjoying meeting such
lovely women AND kindred spirits...thankyou:):)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
everywhere you go...
at my house it is starting to look like this

We made music sheet paper page chains and coffee filter flowers and placed them before putting on the ornaments
I purchased Jones Design Christmas tutorial here for some ideas.
I will show you the whole tree later this week...do you see the ONE white tissue flower??  that is before i changed it to coffee filter flowers...lol!

I had two topiary's sitting around and since I am working A LOT lately with coffee filters I just thought " what the heck " and glued them on!  I painted the pots in chalkboard paint...nothing original:) 
Here is my tutorial on how I do coffee filters...:)

Here is a picture I took of one of the coffee filter flowers I made...this one I glittered the edges.  I just make about 30 and stuck them randomly throughout the tree.

Here is a sneak peek at the two chalkboards we cut and painted and hung to the right of the fireplace.  I will do a post on this very soon.  I will show you the whole wall.  I am still tweeking a few things.  I am going SIMPLE this winter.  Nothing to much...just enough:)

Here is a picture of the topiarie's outside...before putting them on mantle and tying some ribbon on..

and another... I got fresh evergreen for the mantle and front door.  I am still looking for another candle holder for  my candle.  Gosh --that surround sound stuff REALLY bugs me:):)

I've also been working on some lampshades...what do you think?

We got Grace's room painted and trimmed and finished the formal dining room walls that I am posting this week too!!  I can't BELIEVE the change in her room with just what we did!! Amazing!!

Intentionally Brave Monday will be tomorrow...then back on Monday next week:)
The 30 day Challenge I am moving to begin on Monday December 6...due to I have been sick and it just didn't coincide with my plans...go figure?  can't control when your sick...lol!

Have a beautiful day...I am LOVING looking at all the Christmas decorations...it is my FAVORITE time of year!
