Remember when I said that your blog is inspiring?

Well, it's so inspiring that when I saw a star with a capis looking finish on clearance at Marshall's for $5.00 because something was missing from it's center,  I felt like I could make something with it.  Something Christmasy.  It's all your fault...I mean...thanks to you! 




Star w/ a Capiz looking finish...


Little white dove, with some golden berries, that I had at home already...


4" pretty green ribbon I had bought at Tuesday Morning a couple of weeks ago...



I added a few red berries and some greenery borrowed off an ornament...



Then I hung it over a mirror...I'm unstoppable now.

Now for a couple holiday decorations I purchased at 
Target 3 years ago but still love bunches:


I added this hanging snowflake made of greenery to the center of a piece of ironwork 
on the wall of my entryway to give it a festive look.



My Front Door Wreath


The front door color is my current fave Martha Stewart's Shiraz. I was a little worried about how the wreath might look now that the front door isn't red anymore, but I think I like it better.

I love what you done with that star. I never would have thought of decorating the star for Christmas and I have a great big one on my living room wall. Hmmm...now you got me thinking!

Oh now there you go INSPIRING me......

It is still hard for me to picture decorating for Christmas when it is HOT outside....tee heee. My daughter is getting married and moving to Hawaii for two years and that is her biggest stresser...."How do I do Christmas when it is HOT?" She thinks she will be decorating a palm tree....lol.
