I talked Mark into taking me to Michael's in Idaho Falls the day after Christmas, you know, to take advantage of 70% off deals on all things Christmas decor. I found there a GOLDMINE! I got silver picks, silver, cream and gold ribbon, an adorable stocking for Charlie (that I will SO be tracing to make more stockings as we add to the family) and a few other goodies. I love shopping for holidays after they're over! Next year's tree will not bear the same gold ribbon and red flowers of the last four Christmases. No friends, I bought some flashy gold poinsettia flowers last year but didn't use them with the red this year. To the current scheme I will add the gold picks, but Next Year's Tree will be entirely decked out in silver and gold! It will include the cream/gold/silver ribbon (absolutely gorgeous!), gold flowers, silver picks, and a few other tricks I have up my sleeve. I can't wait to see it! (Wait... this coming from the woman who refuses to take her tree down until mid-January because of the time spent lovingly decorating it only a month before? Already looking forward to doing it all over again?) Yes friends. I love sales. I could go broke saving money.
