Friday's Peacock Find
So last week I was talking to my friend Jennie of the Prim Pumpkin and she was telling me about this lighted peacock outdoor holiday decoration she had seen at Lowe's. Perfect, I thought, as I knew Jon & I were heading there over the weekend for fun things like toilet parts and a new light fixture for the nursery. I need another Christmas decoration like I need a hole in the head. Honestly, I am actually weeding though and selling some things, now that I have decorated this house for 7 years and I know what I use and don't use. But this was different... it was a peeeeaaaaacock! They only had one left and with minimal eye rolling from Jon, it was mine! I don't plan to put it outside, as I don't trust the little critters from chewing through the light cords (like they did to my display last year). Instead, I am going to put it in my bay window so that it can be seen from the outside, but being safely inside. This is perfect too, because the bay window is in our dining room and I always do our dining room with all my peacock decor - tablecloth, plates, little tree in the center with all my peacock ornaments. Even though I don't decorate until after Thanksgiving, I am certainly starting to get in the mood!
