Winter Facelift... and some Christmas decor (redecorating?)

As some of you may have noticed... I HAVE A NEW LOOK!!
I am not wishing for snow yet... (Christmas eve okay!)
This picture was taken last year...Just down the road from us...
O it was as cold as it looks that day too!!!


Here is a pic of the Hutch...
I am sorta having a bit of trouble with it...
I am trying to do it in Primitive...
Any suggestions from the Prims???
I NEED HELP!!!
Please feel free to offer your advice!!
Both good and bad please!!! :D
Now for a repeat pic... sort of...I changed the Christmas tree again!!
This time I added some signs...
Sue's "Don't get your tinsel in a tangle" upper right...
(Sue dear, have I told you I LOVE IT??!!!)
and three more...
Live upper left.... Laugh... Lower Left...
Love lower right!!!
I am getting to where I like it more...
But not sure it is finished yet...


And here is my outdoor tree...
well, one of the three...
This is how far the kids and I got decorating...
before they wanted to come in.
I haven't gotten back to it yet, lol.
Hopefully tomorrow...
I went and got some BIG
ornies to put on it!!!
I don't know if I am climbing a ladder yet...
the winds have been in excess of 30 mph this week...
and the klutz I am... well,
I don't need to visit the hospital this season!!!

Well, for now I will close... I have to get back to
work in the basement... I am building me a set
of shelves to house my wood supplies... and
the foam supplies!! I will try to take a pic of my
work area when finished...
NO ONE WANTS TO SEE MY MESS NOW!!
But I can promise it is getting better...
I have gotten three big trash barrels...
two big black trash bags... and some furniture
out of there already...
Built some other shelves...for my jars and stuff...
Set up two base cabinets (full of fabrics!!!)
I didn't know I had THAT much fabric!!
Cleaned of two sets of metal shelves...
Piled up my headboards, foot boards, and rails...
Cleaned off and out an old dresser... (one of hubby's)
no not that old... but the first one he bought after
we got married. (I want to get rid of it... he says no.)
Anyhow, there is hope for my basement now!!
I have high hopes of moving the grands toys...
downstairs... and setting up a day bed for "just in case naps"
and a rug!!! A really big one!!
Tomorrow I will post a pic of the new rug I painted!!
And Grandma Lydia's Peppernuts!!
(I Got Permission to SHARE them!!)

I hope all of you have a wonderfully blessed day!! :D
Also don't forget to SMILE...
You will get on in return!!!
Remember to Live well, Laugh often,
and to LOVE much!!

Debi,
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your hutch all fixed up so prim looking. You did a great job. The tree looks great. Do I see some gingerbread men?? When I first saw your header I thought you had already gotten that snow and I was jealous. I'm ready for the recipe. Have a great day!
