Christmas decorating humor

The city house has been decorated for Christmas! Yesterday, we worked on the yard...

Mr. B put up lights on the house, pulled out the sleigh and wire reindeer, and set them up. I went out to check on him and this is what I found:

All the deer piled in the sleigh and Santa pulling it. Ha, I can't leave him alone for a minute - so I did what any sane DIYer would do - I made a sign and stuck it in front of the sleigh:

Poor Santa. His reindeer have rebelled and are throwing ornaments out the sleigh and now he's having to pull them. Maybe they don't like the warm weather we've been having or they're just tired of working or maybe it's a new reindeer game. Whatever it is, Santa has his work cut out for him. It looks like they're not going to behave.

I love my husband's sense of humor. It has kept me laughing through the years.

I'm going to the farm this week and will decorate while I'm there. Maybe I'll throw in some humor somewhere. Maybe.

So I want to know: Do you have a Christmas funny?

Have a blessed week,

  1. I have to admit - this one had me laughing! Poor Santa. And - once again, you're way ahead of me on the seasonal decorating thing. I'll get around to it - eventually - how many days until Christmas?

    1. um, I try not to think about how many days are would drive me crazy! And really, my husband and son did most of the decorating of the yard and tree. :)

  2. Oh, I love it! That is too funny, and sounds just like something my hubby would do! LOL
    Thank you so much for sharing at A Bouquet of Talent. Hope you are having a great week!

    1. And thank you for hosting a great party! Glad you liked the humor!

  3. I am glad I did not have a mouthful of coffee when I saw this, as it would have been all over my computer....So, so funny!!!...Love your hubby's sense of must get many a "head turn" with that!!...Love it!

    1. haha, Shirley. That would have been bad. :) It's funny to watch people drive by and slow down. We're usually so traditional in our decorating. This is what happens when I'm not there to keep an eye on things. :D

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…

Cozy Christmas Farmhouse at The B Farm

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing The B Farm all cozied up for Christmas as part of the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. It's five days of Christmas goodness - I hope you will pop over and visit the other ladies. I'll share the links at the bottom of my post.

This year, I'm crazy about plaid! What? You too? To me, it just says "cozy" and "homey".

To begin, I dressed the table with red plaid placemats and red napkins from Audrey of Timeless Treasures. The plaid stockings are actually silverware holders my friend Susan gave me a couple of years ago. So cute!
The red pillows on the bench were wrapped with red and white plaid ribbon. They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago.

Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey. It's not plaid but it says farmhouse cozy to me!

Isn't it pretty?

The cute red and white checked apron (another wonderful item from Audrey) han…
