The Finished Product!

Not the best looking bow in the world, but it took me many, many tries to get it to this point:

Best Ornament on the Tree

And now it's time for 5 things I'm grateful for today:
1. Papa Charlie brought us some avocados last night. It was the most wonderful and thoughtful surprise.
2. Jake was nice enough to download the pictures of the tree and email them to me at work. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have posted these until Sunday and you didn't want to wait that long, right?
3. I found out that a book I'm reading, The Help, is being made into a movie and will be out next summer!
4. It's Friday.
5. I cleaned the bathroom this morning so it's one less thing to clean this weekend!

I LOVE that bow, the pear is an adorable accent.
The pic of the little girl: PRICELESS! (I smiled and my heart did a little flip.)

Here's my five for the day:

Realizing that the mess I made with satin over eggshell can be most forgiving if I just do one more coat of paint.

Dim lighting is the cure-all for a bad paint job.

Don't wash those mini a new set!

Over decorate; a busy room can make people dizzy. Absolutely no one will linger.

Use that 'out of place' item as an accent piece. Presto! there's no surer way to create, balance.
