A CHRISTMAS CHAIR

I've gone wreath crazy


John says - There has to be over 20 wreaths hanging up !
Suzan says - If it were up to you we'd have one on the door and that's it.
John says - Well I can tell they'd certainly not be hanging on chairs so that you can't sit on them !


I stapled it to the chair and then stapled some burlap over that -



John says - You've gone Christmas Wreath Bananas now.........
Suzan says - that's what people DO when they decorate for Christmas - I'm not " bananas "

Now most of you know by now that my brain works in such a way................
John has a banana every morning with his cereal.
Every. Single. Morning.

So.....................this is what's awaiting him this morning..............just because.


He makes it ridiculously easy...............

What was NOT ridiculously easy was trying to come up with a new blog page............what do you think?
Is it too stark?
My brain is sore from working on it - but any suggestions are more than welcome :)


Have a great one all !
Hugs,
me

UPDATE - John never mentioned the banana to me - I had to ask him what he thought of the " gift " I left out for him
John says - NO COMMENT - you'll have to look for blog fodder elsewhere

Oh no !!!  Elsewhere?  Please say it ain't so..................

  6. LOL love the banana with a wreath! Your new blog is pretty. (Don't tell John but I don't have ONE Christmas decoration up)

  7. You are too funny. I love your new blog page. It's so pretty. I won't miss trying to see if the boob lady is back on your friend's list. ;)
    I'm not wreath crazy this year. For me, it is all about the holly. There is holly everywhere. I think I gave myself a sinus infection climbing in the woods to get some cedar so cedar is out! Have a wonderful week. I almost wished you a blessed Thanksgiving but you are one of the lucky ones that has it in October. I wish we could petition the government to move it but you can guess how that would go...

  8. OMG, I am eating cereal with a banana (and blueberries) on it and I almost spit it all out when I saw the pic of the banana and wreath!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks SO much for the laugh. I can't wait to see all your Christmas decor!!!

  9. Hi Suzan,
    You are to clever here, and what awaited his cearel in the morning must Ahmed him.... LOL !
    I love the wreath hanging from the chair, it feels like a Christmas card. A simple wreath on a white washed chair.
    I can see how easy given space lots of windows how easy it would be to hang wreaths everywhere, and would truly love to see how crazy you went with them then we can be the judge of that :)

    See you soon, you must tell us JOHNS reaction in your next post :)

    Xoxo
    Happy Giving of Thanks

  12. I love love that wreath on the banana. Still laughing. Wonder why John had nothing to say??? Guess he was just flabber-gasted, (not a word I know) but you know what I mean..(grin)

    1. Maybe I should try making wreaths for the entire fruit bowl LMHO !!!
      I don't think he was flabbergasted - he's gotten used to this type of thing, sadly LOL

  13. I think it's a good idea to put a wreath on a chair that you really don't want someone to sit on anyway. This looks like a neat vintage one, and I'd hate for it to be broken. I've had people sit and stand on my antiques and break them. SO upsetting !! LOVE the banana....and poor John... didn't see the holiday love you put into it. :-(

  14. Love your new blog set up. Bright, clean and cheerful.

    Gosh I love your front entrance. Mine is filled with boxes! I need an extra hand to get everything in place here and Dave threw his back out! Any volunteers? xo Patty

  16. First, super clean look!! Very classy!!

    Was that one of the many wreaths hanging around that made it on John's banana(why does that sound nasty???) or did you custom make it just for his breakfast? I wonder why John didn't respond or does he know any comment is going to make it on the blog. Anyhoo, he seems like a pretty good sport!!! And great material!!

  18. Didn't know that Target sells banana wreathed. Do they carry garlands as well, just interested. The new look is tre' chic! You have me beat on wreathed, what about a wreath exchange next year, we could all meet at your house, don't you think John would be pleased? Xxxxx

  19. I LOVE your simple, new page. You did a great job on it and once you get used to it, you won't think it's plain or stark at all. It looks fabulous...and I busted out laughing when I saw the banana....too cute.
    Tell me about the little stove you have by the chair....

  25. Oh gosh, the banana is too funny! Sounds like something I did for my hubby and he didn't say a word either. I saw a peanut mounted on a wooden disc at a thrift shop with 'computer nut ' written on it. I thought it was funny so I sat it on his computer desk. He never even mentioned it. Darn! Hate it when that happens. lol! Love the wreath on the chair! I have a wreath that I have plans to either hang on a chair or door for my porch. I'll have to see which one works best. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
    Jann
