Fresh Coffee Filter Bouquet

My Christmas decorations are still up on our front porch/windows.
Does that make me a redneck? Oh well. That's ok if it does.

Thought you might like this little ditty I made,
I found the idea here and made my own version of it.

foam ball from the dollar store.


Grande pack of coffee filters from Costco.
straight pins.
If I'd do this again I would buy longer pins, (do they make longer pins)?
While I crafted the boys played UNO, (NEVER-stinkin'-ENDING-UNO). Sometimes I think I play 30 times I day, but I try to say yes most of the time, (not all the time by any means) because someday I'll be old and want my children to play card games with me....so hopefully they'll remember their younger days and how I always played with them.

Probably not, but maybe.
Plus, my Mom always said yes to playing UNO with me and I remember that.

And there's my laundry pile in the background.
It's very important when running a household to have your priorites in line!!
Craft first.
Laundry second,
(that would be a great bumper sticker)!

It's going to be a busy week.
I'm gearing up for it by staying up late on a Sunday night.

The gas man, (I'm sure he has a name) is coming tomorrow to hook up the gas to the carriage house.
The flooring is in....LOOKS BEAUTIFUL.
The painting is done, needs a bit more touch ups here and there.
The cabinets are in, (SOOO JELLO OF HER KITCHEN).
And you should see that place when it's snowing outside, it's so peaceful. When you stand in the middle of the room you have 8 windows surrounding you and yet it's completely silent. It's stunning. We're so excited for Mama to move in,
SHE'S SO EXCITED TOO! Looks like it might be in time for her Birthday next Sunday!!!
I love my husband and the way he GIVES so selflessly to his Mom! It's an HONOR to watch their relationship. It's precious really.

Love how you did it with the pins instead of the hot glue! I ALWAYS burn my fingers on it! Look forward to trying this! Hoping to do some Valentine's Day roses (made from tissue paper, green pipe cleaners, and a little sweet pea spray) for our party! So can't wait!!!
Hope you guys have a great week!
Love you lots and lots like polka dots!

My christmas wreath is still on our front door. I keep thinking I should take it down, but it looks so nice!

And I think you should market that bumper sticker.

That is super cute! I've been wanting to make one with some filters I dyed red. Thanks so much for linking to me!

I love that idea. I did a coffee filter wreath for christmas, hung it in an old frame and put it in my old fashioned kitchen.

We took our tree down last week and all other decor is still up in this house too. ;)
