This is a picture of last years garland that hangs in the front window. Why am I showing you a picture of last years garland instead of this years, you might ask????? Because I was going to shoot the whole house to share with you this week.....
But this is the scene of mass destruction that occurred at my house last night!!! Unfortunately I did not have time to break out the camera and shoot pics of the disaster in action, but basically this is what happened. My friend Devon came over and we were going to have a nice relaxing evening playing in the studio. All of a sudden we hear what sounds like someone had thrown a rock through our window!! We all go running into the front room and see my beautiful Christmas garland and the brand drapery rod broken off the wall, and crashing to the floor!
Thank goodness Devon was there to add a third pair of arms because the garland is HEAVY!!!!
(Hence the broken drapery hardware below)
I couldn't believe that after thoroughly inspecting it all, there was very little damage to any of my pretty glass snowflakes. Tonight we will try some new (and stronger) hardware, and I will work on repairing the damage that was done.... :(
And I thought I was finished with all my decorating!!!
