I think I can make almost anything pretty with a little white paint and some glitter...
I painted several things recently and the glitter just brought them alive!
They started out looking like this...
|I like to spray paint on my old wicker and that way I don't waste any paint!
and turned into this!
Being able to transform things like this brings me joy! We live on an extremely limited budget--but our surroundings are beautiful! Thanks to a little creativity, some paint and some glitter.
The paint just naturally crackled just like it did last year on a similar deer. I love the look :) I am thinking he needs something pretty around his neck. He is looking a little too naked.
I am planning to use this star on top of my tree this year. Isn't it lovely? Much better than the former gold look it had. A pretty tree topper for $2.99 at Goodwill!
Besides painting some pretties I also did some Black friday shopping with the girls. Janae needed a camera so we did the wait in line at Best Buy thing. It is always kind of fun actually. It has become a tradition. We always seem to find some line we need to wait and freeze in. :)

My budget doesn't include things like a camera (and thankfully I already have one) but I did get this sweet crystal tree for $5.25 at Michaels.
I think it looks just perfect on the mantle!
I also couldn't help myself to get a couple more little houses which has become my new collection.
I got this white church at Marshall's...
This sweet little blue house (from HomeGoods) looks so cute with my pink house.
I am beginning to have my own little neighborhood! I think these will always bring back happy Christmas memories each year when I get them out. Some decorations are just special..that is how I feel about these.
I hope this finds everyone enjoying the holiday season!
