A few days later, John instructed me to go to Target to buy some Christmas presents for Tweetle and Ollie.
As I was meandering the aisles for toys, I somehow ended up by the Christmas ornaments.
Ya know, just somehow...
And some yarn bird ornaments caught my eye.
I bought a few of these yarn bird ornaments and a little itty bitty tree.
I was hoping that John would be pleased that I bought some Christmas decor, but he was not.
"I thought you told me we needed more Christmas stuff!" I said.
"I meant you should buy it after Christmas, when it goes on sale", he replied.
"Oh" says me, completely dejected.
But he let me keep my little set-up. I bought some of it with my own spending money and he bought the rest. I originally bought some wooden beaded garland to string on the tree. I was going to paint them mustard yellow.
But those wooden beads are sneaky and slippery and were too heavy for my tiny tree.
So I used my mustard pom-poms instead.
I think next year I shall put mustard pom-poms on my big tree too.
I found the blue/white rosette flower in my fabric stash.
(I made it a while ago and was going to put it on a pillow, but it never made the final cut)
I used it as my star to top the tree, as you can see.
It took me a while to figure out where to put my new tree.
I think it's going to nestle in my front living room, by my green curtains.
After Christmas, I ended up going back to Target and bought yarn birds in all 4 colors for my big tree:
red, green, purple and teal.
On sale, the birds were $2 each.
I like them very much. And I like Target too.
