Just part of my job :)

A fun part of my job during the Christmas Season is to go and decorate commercial buildings. Traditionally for the last 4 years, my sister and I have gone out on Black Friday and put up this tree. You'll see in the background the live tree/plants that are a sample of the types of planters I care for during my regular work week.
This wreath and garland is new for us this year at a different location. It was put together over the past week in my living room. That's a fun and creative perk to my job. Although the tips of my fingers are very sore from being poked repeatedly by wire. Ouch!!! :)
Securing the wreath and garland to this second story glass banister was a bit of a challenge.


Thanks for stopping by for a peak at my other endeavors. Have a great weekend. :)

Really pretty. Hope that the tips of your fingers heal! Must have been a real challenge to get that attached to the glass. But you did a great job of it.

Michelle...I would love your job. I used to do this for the bank. I would decorate our different branches and also the historic "Orange Hall" in downtown St. Mary's. I miss it this year. Maybe someday I will get a job where I can do it again. That is why I am used to doing my own house around Veteran's day. I would be so busy with everyone else I would burn out for my own house. So I learned to do myself first no matter how early....get burned out doing everyone else's...LOL Just beautiful.

Hugs,
Carol
