A seed was planted

It looks much larger in my living room!

This past Sunday I taught the 9 year olds about talents( you know the parable ). Well I have been feeling a little guilty about burying a few of mine. So, I figured I should get to work on digging them back up. One of them is decorating, I am still very much in the learning stage of this talent, but since Chris and I have completely different taste I had kind of given up. Well not anymore. Sorry Chris!! Today I brought home a branch. Chris was very helpful loading it in the truck although he had no idea what is was for ( because I wouldn't tell him ). Then, while he was out, I brought it into our living room to stay. I never said I had good taste, but I like it! It still needs a pot( french urn style) and moss, and I'm going to hang things on it, but I am well on my way to reclaiming at least one buried talent.

It's perfect Merilee! You have so many talents and decorating is definitely one of them. I can't wait to see it. See how late I'm up again? What's wrong with me? lol

Fabu! Oh, did I mention we watched animaniacs for days at Emily's, so say that like you're Wacko (should not be hard) It looks __________(insert adjective here that has not already been used by others that means I like it a really lot). You've always had a knack for what looks good. I may even steal that old rose catalog wall idea for my downstairs bathroom.
