I admit it... I tweak

At times I'm just not 100% satisfied with something I've done, and if so... I have to tweak it. I think I inherited this trait from my Father. It's a bit like being a perfectionist, which can sometimes drive you crazy, but... back to Christmas. I changed out the green snowflakes on the wreath for white, because really, are snowflakes green? I also moved the white trees to inside of the green ones, more balanced and more pleasing to my eye. 

I made more bows and added them to the banister.
The banister lit up. I love these metal snowflakes!
I found the purple hydrangeas and stuck them in the tree, 
I knew we had more than just 2! I'm done tweaking now and content with my work! 
Bring on the holiday company!
And the best for last! We have the Playmobil train from when the girls were little. I ran-sacked our storage unit until I found it, and tonight we set it up around the tree.
 Choo choo... the Christmas Express is now ready for grandbabies to come visit!


  1. I love the purple in the tree! And I agree about the white snowflakes. The green ones blended in too much. Can't wait to see it in person :)

  2. I am so with you! I actually waste time agonizing over the ornaments on the tree, outside, etc. Sometimes I'm happy with the tweaks, sometimes not, but yours look fabulous! You are one talented lady!

  3. I didn't even realize the snowflakes were green. Looks much better!!

  4. Love it! I also put my signature on things. I don't think I've ever used the bow that came on a wreath - always change that! Great job, Sandy! XOXO

  5. Love it all, so pretty! Where did you get the snowflake lights?

  6. Renn, I wish I could remember where they came from, I'd buy more. There's no label on them and I've had them a few years.
