Well here we are again, Jesus. Just once, I'd like Monday to take a vacation for a few weeks.
I think he agrees.
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Yours truly had a busy one. We started to get the Casa decked for the holidays on Friday. On Saturday night I had my first Christmas party to attend, and of course, had to be unzipped and put to bed. The merriment and other earthly delights got the best of me. Then on Sunday I and two other friends went to tour the beautiful homes of Fairmount Park here in Philadelphia. If your in the area go check out the historic tour, called Charms of the Park. I'll share some of that later in the week.
Have you ever decorated with bottle brush trees? The last couple years, I've really been enjoying using them to decorate with. I remember my grandmother using them all over the house and in many ways. They are quite adorable. I would like to amass a few more. But what is the story on them??? The only thing I remember is my grandmother telling me that bottle brush trees and wreaths, was that the Addi’s Bottle Brush Co began to dye their toilet bowl brushes in post-war times and assemble them into Christmas trees. The English, in particular, took to them since they had a shortage of evergreens after the war. It seems now we are currently experiencing quite a revival in interest in these adorable trees, along with full-sized and smaller wreaths. They are festive don't you think? I can only imagine what the Dog's Mother would come up with for use? Take a gander.....
