Poinsettia Tree

Tree #4
My long time readers may remember that I decorate a few trees at work. I used to do 5 or 6, but I am getting very tired of doing them and have dwindled it down to only 2 this year. I've done the same ones for the past 3 years and it's pretty boring, so I won't spend much time talking about them.

This tree has red poinsettias, white ribbon, gold& white balls.

Tree #5 - The Sunflower Christmas Tree

Again this is a third time repeat.........I used to love this one, but I am tired of it now. The one thing worth mentioning on the sunflower tree is this burlap ribbon.
I just bought a few yards of burlap fabric and cut strips. They don't have to be even--just nearly the same width. No sewing required...just let the ends fray. I also used this fabric for the tree skirt.

Yes, I did do them today.... Thanksgiving Day.....
So remember if you like to be off on the holidays, don't work in a hotel.

Actually I had a good day at work. It went by fast (as it always does) and I got a lot of work done because nobody calls me on a holiday and I got to spend time chatting with my work friends. I truly did not mind working at all. It's amazing how all of us have learned to plan our holiday celebrations around our work day.

When I got home today I immediately started on my broccoli cheese dish to take to my mother-in-laws. I had it done in plenty of time.

And I am happy to say that it was pretty tasty.

So I have had a very busy day. I've worked, decorated two Christmas trees, made the broccoli dish, cleaned up the kitchen from that mess, then spent three hours at the family event. Oh, and I ate turkey -- for the sixth day in a row! :)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I must get to bed now because I intend to be at JC Penney at 5:00 a.m. tomorrow. I see some black pant boots at less than half price. Then I must get to Joanne's at 6:00 a.m. because they have Rowenta irons for 1/2 price. Mine died last week. By the time I get to work at 7:00 a.m. I should have a trunk full of goodies.


  1. I hope you got your early bird specials. It works for you as you are up anyway. : )
    Wow-6 days of turkey would do me in. I'm glad you had a good day yesterday. I don't mind seeing your work trees at all as you do a great job with them

  2. You are an amazing woman, Zoey! I think I finally shagged my butt out of bed at 8 a.m. this morning! I'm usually up by 6 or 7, but was totally worn out by all that Turkey Day cooking! H was nice and let me sleep. (He's usually up at 4 or 5)

  3. I love that checkered burlap Zoey!
    There is no way I'd get up that early to go shopping..hehe I dislike shopping at the best of times.
    Sounds like your Thanksgiving went well...enough turkey anyway!!

  4. It's no wonder they like you to do the trees up at work, you do such a beautiful job!! Love the burlap matches my tablecloth! lol Yummm, that broccoli cheese dish looks wonderful. Isn't it amazing how much we can do all in one day?!! xoxo
