One Week Vacation Wrap Up

I guess in some ways, I wish I had more things to show for my first week long vacation in forever, but my plan was to do nothing but relax and enjoy myself and that is exactly what I did! Besides cooking a 22lb turkey and all the fixings, moving Calypso to a new barn, reading the first book of Hunger Games in one sitting, barn work on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and watching a ton of TV. See not much for a week, right?

I took my camera to the new place tonight and I will share pictures and explain why I moved in another post. For now, I wanted to share this awesome and inexpensive table décor I made.

The large glass vases I got from Walmart for only $2 and change, the inner votives (in glass) were 12 for $4 at Big Lots. The best are the acorns. Roly Poly and I collected those at the new barn. The property has tons of oak trees and the acorns were ours for the collecting. He and I had such a blast. I wish I’d had my camera with me to show you his adorably proud face every time he found one and brought it over to me.

I think they came out awesome. But after we lit them on Thanksgiving I was even more impressed, the light flickers and filters through the acorns and they are simply stunning.

I hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving. I don’t want to go to work tomorrow. Sad me, right?
