Christmas Window Vignette (Message On a Window)

Okay, I have decided that instead of “message in a bottle”, I have a “message on a window”. (nuff said on that)
My Christmas window needed a little tweaking so you could read the message a little easier. I added a piece of burlap to the back because we all know that burlap is like Duct tape and will fix anything, right?  (you know most of you agree with that statement)
With a few extra additions, this is how my window vignette turned out.

We had a good ole fashioned popcorn stringing last night and made garland to hang on the top of the window.
About every other piece of popcorn Faith ate off of her garland, so it took her a little longer, but it was so much fun to watch her.

I have been adding Christmas touches to our home all week in between the rest of life, which is always so busy.
Let me make sure to say that I am not forgetting Thanksgiving. 
  I have so much to be thankful to the Lord for and I pray that I express that thankfulness to Him everyday. 
I don’t want to be like the nine lepers who didn’t go back and say thank you after they were healed.  I want to make sure to be like the one who did tell Jesus…Thank You!!  (Luke 17:11-19)
Heading over to Donna’s at Funky Junk Interiors for her “White” party and Perfectly Imperfect for her party.

Check out Cindy's party tonight at Cottage Instincts and Amy's at Whisperwood Cottage and My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia.

Just the name of Jesus soothes, doesn't it?

p.s. how did you add the print friendly tab/button?

Oh my! Too funny...I JUST did this to my old chippy windows yesterday! Doesn't it look cool? I love me some burlap. I need to take a pic of mine and get them the popcorn garland too. Great idea :)

We have a "Thanksmas" on Thursday...Thanksgiving and Christmas with hubby's family. We have a big thanksgiving dinner at noon, hang out all afternoon and have Christmas dinner in the evening. It is a great day, and really helps me to kick off the Christmas season early!

Lynda @ Happenstance Home said...

Love the window, such a great idea to write a special message. I have an old window on our hallway dresser but it's been painted on already.
All your decorations look beautiful, you have the look you were going for.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
