The weight of the world isn't on my shoulders.... it's on my drapery hardware.

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!!!

Oh Karen, I am so sorry, I remember how beautiful your home was last year. I can't wait to see it, hope it holds. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

Oh dear, I guess you have to be thankful it did not happen Christmas morning or during Christmas dinner.

Glass half full?

Looking forward to seeing your Christmas decorating since I am a new follower. Glad those ornaments stayed intact for the most part.

Theresa said...

Oh, no! It was all soooo beautiful.

Romeo said...

Whew! Very glad that it didn't happen when a furred angel was in the vicinity! THAT would have been disastrous!

I'm sure that once you let the garland know you won't take any more laying around on the job, your house will be wonderfully Christmas again :)

Purrs!

Oh dear! How awful! I'm so sorry to hear that happened, but glad to hear that you didn't have much damage.
Hopefully, you can figure it out and get it to stay up.

What a bummer! Sounds like you took it in stride and are back on track with it. It looks pretty on the floor too:)

Well you can always say, Christmas is your most exciting time of the year. But God is good and no one got hurt. Can't wait to see the rest of your home as I love to see everyone's decorated homes. It's so much fun to peak and get some ideas. Have a great day. God bless. Cathy

XOXO,

Oh I am soooooooooooooo very sorry to hear of that disaster!!!! I can only imagine the sound that made. Now if you lived in California you'd have thought there had been an earthquake! Please tell Devon hello for me the next time you see her. HUGS!
