No BALLS for Sonny~sniff, sad~ lol

I searched High~ Low~ and sideways as my Grandma used to say and Nope- nada- No BALLS to go with the tree I wanted to accomplish for this year...

 :::  thanks to Susan for Hosting the Meta Monday Party for us::::
go see all the wonderful things that have been posted this week.. I know you'll be inspired and amazed.

  Not living next door to Macy's and even if I did I couldnt work their ornaments into my bargain budget.. There was nothing else to do but make my own using what I had on hand...
 yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.. I love them...~!!  just what I wanted and needed....
  I went to the dollar store and at the very back of the aisle they had a box of last years balls priced at 2--5 in each pack- plain sorta yucky balls--- for $1.00... that made them 10 cents each...  OK , I can handle that price ....
 Stained sweater I saved for I didnt know what... Buttons from my jar of saved buttons and 2 rolls for 1.00 ribbon and Viola...I figure 10 perfect balls to suit me for about 3.00 was a good deal...
   I needed balls that had texture- were the right colors- and added some lightness to my tree..
Sonny is a happy Girl... :)

  We're having company for Thanksgiving and then we're traveling to a few places around the state to see Christmas Displays... I needed my tree up Now so it would already be done by the time I got back home..
    Happy Holidays to All
More Christmas next week if I don't overdose on Pumpkin Pie...... giggle
   Thanks so much for stopping in to take a peek at what I've been doing....
Please come back again , anytime.. I love havin Ya'll visit...
