It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Mavis!

Mavis has decked her head with boughs of holly, you guys!

Damn, girl!  You make $8 worth of cheapo faux floral thingies look goooooood.  Or at least cheery.

Aside from Mavis's contribution, the only other holiday decoration up so far is a new weather-resistant wreath on the fence where the spinal column wreath was in October and the birdseed wreath was not in November.  I have a few ideas from something less seasonal, but it will have to wait until after the holiday creating and traveling is complete.

I'm thinking (and hoping) it will look cheerier when there's some snow around. At least now when we give directions we can say, "go straight at the Glama Wreath."

Another cheapo project: $2.99 wreath form (bought with the Michael's 25% off your whole purchase coupon), four $1 lengths of blue/silver tinsel garland, dollar store plastic, glitter encrusted ornament, and a 79 cent sequin "ribbon" floral pick (also 25% off).  Sure it's not the prettiest or the best designed, but it should hold up for the winter and still show up with snow.  And when the parts get ruined, it won't hurt my feelings much that I'm going to have to take it apart and make another wreath... oh, I'll use that form again all right.


  1. I love Mavis! I think I'll hang balls from our deer head this year.

    Your wreath is lovely! And the fact that it was cheap, er, inexpensive, makes it even more fun!

    1. Mavis is about to get a seasonal boyfriend! Rudolf is in the house! (Still in a box, but nonetheless)

  2. Mavis looks great! Oh what fun it will be to watch her through the holiday's. Score on the Glama wreath. That will look gorg with snow around it.

    1. Thanks! I think she's going to be a super fun lady!
