The day Felicity and I were supposed to leave on our road trip there was a winter storm that moved through our traveling path so we had to stay home an extra day.  We decided to spend the day transforming our Christmas Tree (that we still hadn't taken down), into a Valentine Tree.




The only thing we had to buy was a $1 package of paper doilies.  All the other decorations we made from things around the house.


For garland we used scraps of lace and ribbon and then cut up strips of fabric to go with the leftover red mesh we used at Christmas.



We made a few other garlands with sheet music and twine.  I'm definitely going to find lots of uses for those, even after we take down the tree.




We also hung some paper medallions that I had made last year for decorations at Felicity's Valentine Party.  I clipped on a few of Felicity's pink, red and white satin flower hair clips as well.    




wE raided my jewelry box and draped a couple pink necklaces and a pearl necklace along the branches,  then we hung a few pretty brooches on, as well as a couple of heart shaped pendants that I took off some necklaces.




I couldn't figure out what to use for the tree topper and then finally decided to pull out some dyed coffee filter flowers I made last year for Felicity's Easter Party and attached them to the top of the tree.

We like the tree so much that I think we will make this a tradition every year.  It's so much work getting the tree down out of the attic and setting it up every year, that I think we might as well find a way to enjoy it for more than one month   =)


{ ROAD TRIP - PART THREE }



Felicity and I are still enjoying traveling around Alabama.  



Although I still have not figured out exactly what "Roll Tide" means, I know it has to do with football here, but still don't understand what it actually MEANS..... 



People here certainly take the phrase seriously though, I actually saw it mowed into someone's yard yesterday - and it's not even football season!




We visited this cute children's store called "Kids Korner" in Enterprise, Alabama and are delighted that they're going to be carrying part of my line now!  


Enterprise has a really cute old downtown with this brick road and old fountain at the center of it.  I just LOVE it!




While we were on the road we came across this cotton field, it was so pretty, just a field of cotton nearly as far as you could see.


I tried to get Felicity to take a picture by and get down to touch it, but she was grossed out by it and said:

"Yuck Mom, it's Old!"




P.S.

We are having a "Share it to Win it" GIVEAWAY on our Facebook Page!



We are hitting the road again Monday to go visit a children's store in Ozark, Alabama - hoping they'll like our line!
