This little missy greets you with some yummy peppermints at my office door.  She is stuffed with wal-mart sacks and models thrift store sweaters and accessories.
I keep my door covered year round and add Diva Wisdom as I hear it or think it but the wreath and garland are special for the holidays.  My skate was inspired by all the talent on  JMS. 
I recently added this shelf to hang my do dads on.  Its wood from an old swing set my kids out-grew, corbels from the thrift store, cheery red garland and lights from the thrift store.  Pink Santa is looking up and thinking about jumping to catch some garland and swing on up!
Heres my tree which is also up all year long ~ I just added the red balls for a Christmas touch.
Last is the filing cabinet which needed a little green and a smaller tree.  A poinsetta clip completes the look!

I spend more time at work than I do at home so I want to feel comfortable there.  Many staff come by to just sit and decompress for awhile.  I usually have candles burning and music playing.  I work in a high stress field so a nice place to go for a little respite is a good thing to have.  Besides..... who wouldn't want TWO places to decorate with junk!  Psssst....I actually have THREE ~ my new training room gets spiffed up too.

RustyDiva writes: KMcG73 - Oh wouldn't that be cool to have wire! It's just wallpaper with a tiny fleur de lis pattern on it. I measured it the length of the door and then wrapped a little over and under the door and taped it to the backside. Our maintenance man gets a little antsy if I secure things with something other than tape or push pins. I mostly ignore him but I wanted to be able to change the paper out later if the mood struck me.

Kathy - I've kind of changed things up to a devilishly diva red and black theme but some of my "pink love" is still hanging around. haha Hugs and kisses to ya! Posted: 10:46 am on December 21st

When I saw the pic of the pink snowman - I had a feeling it was yours before I looked at the post... :)

Thanks for sharing it with us and merry, merry Christmas to you!!

Happy Holidays!
