Commercial Break

Y'all remember the dog, Dug in the movie UP? Jenn often compares me to him and today I'm thinking she may be right. I've been gathering, trying to keep focused and then I spy something sparkly out of the corner of my eye and.....Squirrel!

I thought maybe if I took just a little break from it and cleared my thoughts, I'd be better off. It doesn't make things go any faster or smoother to push. I just end up getting goofier and goofier and I really don't need to be any goofier!
The big reveal is only two weeks away (no pressure here, so she says!) and I'm working like mad to bring my own style (so she calls it!) to Christmas. Can you say smoke and mirrors?

So as a reindeer, I mean reminder......

Now, A Word From Our Sponsor!
I have no idea what all the girls have planned for y'all, but I promise you up and down, it will be spectacular. Everyone is being hush-hush with what they have up their sleeves. I'm just as curious as y'all are and twice as excited! The fruits of their labor will be revealed the Friday after Thanksgiving at 4:00 p.m.

Da Da Da-a-a! The drama builds!

There will be a small admission for the preview, but this money is going to a very worthwhile cause. Donations will also be accepted for another special cause. A dear friend of ours, Shiloh (who sets up at Canton and Warrenton) recently lost her husband. There will be a designated bowl at the checkout area in Sweet Peas to make contributions to help her with unexpected expenses. The heartbreak of losing her soul mate is devastating in itself and we want to help lessen some of the burden. I mention this now because y'all are some of the most generous people it has ever been my privilege to "meet" and I knew you'd want to know about this. I'll give you more information as things get all lined out.
Well, I've taken a long enough break...time to get back to it. As my mother used to say..."It's not going to wash itself!"
Consider these photos clues, but knowing me...it's all subject to change....

Squirrel!!!

It all looks very mysterious, Debbie. Are those black feathers I see there?

Cassie said...

Funny, that's how my attention span is about this time of year! Love the black & white!

Sue said...

Goofy? I like goofy and fun! My brain malfunctions ALL year round, not just during the holiday season. The good part of that is I'm use to malfunctioning! Take care.

AuroraSuzette said...

I actually had to reread the Squirrel part twice to understand it. Is that not, like, normal?? Oh dear. Can't wait to see the fruits of your efforts.

Thanks for reminding me, I need to get that on my netflix list. Tell me, Debbie, do you steal hot dogs and drink out of other peoples glasses? I laugh every time I see that commercial for it!
Love your preview of W&T!!!
Debra

Your analogy to the dog in Up made me laugh. Looks like you've got some good stuff going on. Hope you got lots of work done today.

Alas, I will be working those days. Curses! And you know that I would surely drive all the way up there just to see you gals. I'm gonna have to live vicariously through someone...

Hayley said...

Hi Debbie! Love your hair! I just changed mine a little too, put some darker color in places. I would love to see W & T done up for Christmas. Our only hope of something as lovely around here is if Brian and Melonie of The Seedbox have an Open House out at their place like they did last year. I haven't heard yet. You're welcome to come up to MO and I'll take you! Have a great weekend...

You leave the sweetest comments too Deb.
So glad we met in bloggersville.

Took me about 2 hours to read this post due to the "sparkles" and "squirels" that sent me off in another direction...

I can not WAIT to see what you pull out of your magic hat!!! The fruit is GORGEOUS!!!

Oh - oops - saw something shimmering over there....

Hmmm, I'm no good at waiting but guess I have no choice! Smoke and mirrors, huh?? You do a good job at it all, Debbie.

Loved your comment about dogs and wine - you always make me smile, especially when it's needed the most - thank you!

Wish I was closer to go to that wonderful event. I look forward to the photos.

Okay, I'll let you get back to your planning. Know whatever it is, it will be fab!
