Countdown to Mistletoe....Days 11 &12...Oh Christmas Tree! Oh Christmas Tree!

Day 11 was just too jam packed and exhausting to do much of anything but collapse when I got home. 

Movin' on.....My lunch break today was a battle on Richmond Road because I think everyone else decided to use that route of travel.  Nonetheless, I made it to my destination.....Paint On Pottery Too! 

A few of us from work visited last week for our annual Christmas painting field trip.  The others painted pottery (cookie plate, wine glass and a jewelry dish) and I decided to go out on a limb and do something different....fused glass. 

I've been drooling over the fused glass Christmas trees for about a month and once they gave me the low-down on how to do it, I was off and running. 

It was fun.  It was a lot of fun.  So much fun that I've already decided what I want to do next.  Robin Hartman and her staff  were very helpful and trying to decide how to decorate my tree was the hardest part.

Addictive!  About half-way through the project, I was already thinking and dreaming over the sunburst flowers in the painted mason jars.  I NEED no no...I need three in my kitchen window and that will be a nice winter project so my window will be ready for Spring!

But for now....this has joined my other Christmas decorations.....

I just love the painted mason jar!

Oh Christmas tree!

A special THANK YOU to Robin and the girls at Paint On Pottery Too....We'll be back!  In fact, if anyone wants to go...ummm this weekend...give me a holla!

Side note....I slipped into Quirks of Art and bought a 'prop' for Christmas Eve and can't wait to share it with you!
