Kids Planet it is! What a small world we live in. I love Fresh Market too. It was my favorite place to escape for a few minutes. I love your ornaments. What a cute idea!

When are you giving the star making class? Those are so cool. My first thought is that they were like those copper/metal (or whatever they are made out of) stars that you buy to hang on the wall and that you painted them. Your creativity and energy seems endless. This year I'm not even putting up the big tree. I know - I'm scrooge but I don't feel like fighting the "don't touch" battle with Blake. I guess I'll enjoy everyone else's and be thankful I don't have to take it down because Valentines day is just around the corner (I did that one year). :-)

You are so creative! Can't wait to see a picture of the entire tree.

I wouldn't be able to tell that you made the ornaments! You are truly gifted (and I so envious)! We have our tree up and as always the boys do the decorating. No classy trees in this house! I only have room for one, and if I had room for two, I probably wouldn't do it anyway! Aaron has already been a battle to keep him off the tree. He had broken a couple ornaments already. I hope he outgrows this type of curiosity by next year.

We really missed you guys at Thanksgiving!

Hurry up with those pics, Martha!!!......lol.....I can't wait to see your tree! :) Maybe you can share the secret to your stars. ? (hint, hint) SOOOO neat looking. (flatter, flatter) I finally figured out that they are made from wrapping paper. (snoop, snoop) Am I right?

What a challenge......a classy tree on a budget! Looks like you did it, tho! Good job!

Opps.....after I "published" my comment, it hit me.....it's probably card stock or some type of scrapbook paper. Maybe??? :)

Ooh. I can hardly wait to see the whole thing! I love teal and brown together. I, like Dorcas, also thought at first that the stars were metal.

Les, I think you and I would get along splendidly!

Okay,"Plum Flummoxed," you have me wondering. . . My guess is that you are either Lucia Howard or Nancy (Dinkins) Harville.

Heh heh...its nice to see your still your hilarious self.

Your boys are darling! Love the anecdotes and pictures.

Keep guessing.

Okay, "Plum Flummoxed," all you need to do is give me the first letter of your first name, the state in which you live, the year we met or if you play an instrument. Much obliged. (Quit being mean!!! "Martha Stewart" has sent enough guessing games my way! :-)

Oops. . .Forgot one thing. The only person in the entire world that I personally know whose name begins with a "Z" is Zahava. With that in mind,does our "connection" begin in South Dakota?

At 2:57 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Okay, here's a big hint:
Z is a male name...small male;)
