Back In The Saddle

Okay, enough.  I have fallen down on the "dressing" part of Ranch Dressing.  No more floral vignettes (for at least a week), time to get ready for Christmas 2010.  I'm starting in the Bistro.




Goodbye Autumn.  Yes, those are artificial flowers I pulled out of the blue and white from the dining room.  I was desperate for color that wouldn't die.  I can't tell you how much I despise fake flowers. After coming home from our Thanksgiving trip and seeing these guys, I realized just how badly I needed the vacation!  What was I thinking????  One of the best aspects of a vacation can be the homecoming.  You really get a good look at your home with a "fresh eye".  Fortunately, except for the faux flower debacle, I was well pleased with The Ranch.  The Bistro is going to get kicked up a notch and decked for Christmas.  Pardon the ugly before but that's what befores are all about, right?  Time to get busy!  Stay tuned.....

Can hardly wait to see what you do with the ranch for Christmas. Mine takes about a week to complete. Starting slowly today. Looking forward to seeing your results...and mine, too! Cherry Kay

I know it will be gorgeous. I did some decorating Saturday but am trying not to spend money which is hard to do. I am full of disdain for faux flowers also.

I can't wait to see what you do.
Do you have a huge collection of Christmas things?

Thank you for your wonderful comment on my blog.
