Posted by terrepruitt on December 30, 2022




This picture is actually from earlier this month. I was trying to highlight the tree and cheers a friend. I was going to text this to her, but I got interrupted and never did. So I am using it as my last Friday Photo of 2022. I am toasting out 2022 and toasting in 2023.

Sparkles And Joy

Posted by terrepruitt on December 29, 2022

Yes, I AM obsessed with my Christmas tree and my decorations that is why I am posting pictures all month.  I love the lights and the sparkle, plus in all fairness, it is for such a short time.  Today I was just sitting looking at my ornament tree.  Such a random assortment of sparkle.  Love it.  So, here is another shot.

A Symmetrical Christmas Tree

Posted by terrepruitt on December 28, 2022

I used to spend a lot of time at the Christmas tree lot looking for a perfectly symmetrical tree.  But then I realized that where we put our tree actually allows for a tree that is flat on one side, so now the tree we end up getting is usually not even.  This is another cork tree I made, but this one . . . as you can see is a symmetrical.  Cork, you may not know, is not easy to work with.  All corks are not the same size and some of them have bulges and don’t get me started on trying to poke a hole through one.  This three is a monogram tree.  I left it somewhat plain so that the letter could show through.  Having fun with corks.

If you had a lot of corks is there something you could think to make with them?  Care to share?

Trees Are Not Symmetrical

Posted by terrepruitt on December 27, 2022

YEARS ago I bought a project to do that required wine corks and I asked everyone to save the corks for me. Well, saving them has become a habit and I have saved and received a lot of wine corks. I wanted to do something with them and so I created a couple of things this year with the wine corks. Here is one wine cork Christmas tree. I wanted it to be asymmetrical, I wanted it to be able to lay flat for easier storage.  I also wanted the tree to be removable from the base. The idea is to turn each row of branches to help it look more like a tree. I mean, really, trees are not symmetrical so why do I think the ones I make have to be? I tried to let this one just BE. I like it, but I realize that I often inflict my “crafty” ideas on my friends. I know I am fortunate they love me.

I even like the way it looks from the top.

Oh, and by the way . . . I have not yet done the original project that I started saving wine corks for. I really should get to that!

Christmas Tree Lights

Posted by terrepruitt on December 26, 2022

I really love how the Christmas tree looks at night with the lights on.  I could post daily pictures of the tree.  It would look the same but that is how often I take pictures of the tree.  Silly, I know.  You may have noticed the a portion of a cork tree in the lower left corner.   I’ll show you it next.  Now that the gift has been given, I can post them.

Cute Seal

Posted by terrepruitt on December 21, 2022

This is a little seal. He is cute. He looks like he is flying or we could pretend he is floating in the surf. I like him.  I think he is super cute!  What do you think?

Do you have any animal ornaments on your tree?

Strategic Placement Takes Time

Posted by terrepruitt on December 19, 2022

So, you may have seen my post where I mentioned decorating the ornament tree was not as easy as I had thought when I got it last year. And this is one reason why. First of all the nativity ornament is HUGE so I couldn’t hang a long ornament next to it because it got in the way. Then I had the idea to hang an angel by it (above it) because I thought that was artsy and smart (an angel over the nativity scene), but they (my angels) are all too big and bang against the bulb. I tried a few different things and realized that it was just going to be one of those things that happened. The angel was and is going to hit the nativity ornament. I believe the angel and the nativity bulb are the only ones that hit . . . at least they are the only ones that make a nerve wracking (are they going to break?  The sound itself is actually pleasant) noise. But they only snack each other when we are leaning over to plug and/or unplug the tree. Anyway . . . this is an example of why it takes so long . . . because I think I am being brilliant when I decorate. Ha, ha, ha, ha. Anyone else place their ornaments strategically?

My View Christmas 2022

Posted by terrepruitt on December 17, 2022

This is my view this season!  I love the lights and the decorations.  We purposely set up the Christmas tree so we have the best view.  From other angles it is either really hilarious or rather scary with the way the trunk is.  But from this angle it is great.  And the room is surrounded by lights. 

Do you like a lot of lights for the Holidays?
