Holiday House/SNAG or TAG


I just love the house in this graphic.  If you would like your family's name, your name or some special message, leave me a comment.

It has snowed 3 inches here today and now it's a mix of rain and ice...yuck.

My thermostat went kaput on my furnace.  Should have been no big deal because my BF could put a new one on but, of course, it was a big deal.  When he took the old one off, there were too many wires and none were the right color.  I had to call for a weekend heating repair.  The previous owner did all his own work and used whatever he had around the house.  The heating guy had to change the wiring clear into the furnace.  $174 later; not counting the $30 I had spent on the thermostat earlier, my heat is up and running.  Merry Christmas to  Good news is this young guy is starting his own heating company in March.  I need some things done on the furnace that can wait until then and will cost me far less than what the place he works for charges.

I managed to get some cleaning done and some snowmen up in my livingroom.  I'm not too hopeful that the outside lights will get up this year. 

I'll leave you with a slideshow of my tree that I did in Photobucket.  I still would like a fuller, bigger tree but actually it sits near the path to the kitchen, and it's much easier to navigate around it than previous years when our trees were huge.  Plus Grizzly isn't knocking everything off of it with his tail when he runs into the kitchen (which is every time the refrigerator opens or a bag of something rustles.)

HUGS N LOVE to all........(Thanks to dear Sugar for my Christmas gift graphic below....muah!!!)

Love your tree hon! Sounds like the young man will definitely be worth his weight in gold when he has his own businesses. We have a plumber is coming sometime in February to do some work from us that has volunteered to do it on the side. In the end we pay far less than going through his company. (Hugs) Indigo

Beautiful tag. I snagged it. Thanks!  Your tree ia great. I don't think I have ever seen a Christmas tree that wasn't beautiful! I love them. We have  an artificial lighted tree. One of the strands of lights it out and we cannot run it down So it doesn't have as many lights as I like. And I didn't put on all the ornaments this year. Just ran out of steam. It has plenty.
 Snowed and drizzled here last night.  Most of it was gone by early afternoon. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
Holiday hugs, Barb

Your tree is magical!! WOW....i am SO impressed. You said in my comments that your car was making a funny noise..isn't your car new? I pray it is ok.
I am so sorry about that furnace the week before seems to me that so much goes wrong with cars and big important things right when the bills are due. I am glad you have heat. I love it when you update. I LOVE YOU,

Hi, Chris! Thank you for visiting my journal! Now that's an honor for one of my favorite graphic artists to show up on my doorstep! =.) Glad you got your furnace working. I dont worry about heaters in the winter. I just add more blankets and wear something warm to bed, but then, we dont get snow here. =.) Aww @ thank you about the font I used on your tags. I love your work. Wish I could do work as good as yours. =.)
Kisses and warm hugs,
Win =.)

I Love this Holiday House.... How long can the message be??  I'd like "Merry Christmas from Joann and Chris" but if that's too long, just 'Merry Christmas" is fine!!

Bob & Connie  on it??

Sorry to hear about your furnace. It is yucky having to spend extra money during the Holiday season.
