Christmas Doings...

 A few      places to go      in the  neighborhood...

 In case you don't recognize the duct tape...I  stole borrowed this photo from my friend, Robelyn
She did a great post about W & T's
Christmas Show last year.

 Can't wait for Angels in America at Winnie and Tulula's, 
located in Athens, Texas...
 20 minutes from me!

What a creative group...I've posted about them here. And last Christmas I was just blown away...










The Red Shed Girls are having their Christmas Show...
                                                                     It will be dreamy and white.
Such pretty things, so if you are in the area stop by...

Go to their blog for all the information:
Here's a little peek, though...
"Mix those whites and ivories and creams with silver and glass, crystal and glitter and once again you get to the heart of what dreams are made of......."
Red Shed Antiques...

The shop is an hour from Mabank, in Grapevine...but Valerie lives in the lake area near me,
small world huh?

 The same day you can head on to  
Mabank's Christmas Tour Of Homes.

Everyone works so hard and has so many ideas, it really is the event of the year!

Here are two shots from last year...

 The Presbyterian Church



 All white and look a dog, too...

We weren't on the tour last year, but we will be this year...


At our School Christmas Tea last year we had lots of cloches... 












Our Tea last year...

We featured a paper village of our town, along with many other handmade items...my sis worked so hard...and is again this year...she will make it stunning and we try to make it odd unique, lol.


And here are a couple little critters you might see, going along with our theme this year...

                                  An exemplary stroll through a winter wonderland

Lezlee

Oh, now that sounds like an outing. Better pack a lunch or some snacks so you don't get faint doing all the oohing and awing and hauling it all back to the car!
Have fun- Hugs- Tete

Lezlee,
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting. It's always great to make a new blogging friend. Your own blog here is so lovely, and girl, you are so creative! I'm following you as well. Just wondering where in our big state of Texas would I find Mabank.... Must do a little research!

Cheers,
Debi
