and the fabulously funky junker queen Donna - from Funky Junk Interiors came up with this
Don't DIY'ers just knock it out of the park?
EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
You just know I had to jump in on the bandwagon, right?
You know I'm just a shameless copy cat, right?
Because if everyone else is climbing the ladder to Christmas Tree success I don't want to be
left on the bottom rung looking up
So I rummaged through the basement - banging and moving things until I found this
John says - what are you doing down there?
Suzan says - looking for the old ladder
John says - for what?
Suzan says - I'm decorating
John says - PLEASE use the newer one - the old one is really dangerous
Oh but the old rickety vintage one is exactly the one I want to use - John was watching T.V. while
I whipped out some decorations
John says - Do you need help with the ladder?
Suzan says - Nope - I'm ok - thanks
John says - because if you're using the old one I should hold it for you.
John says - Where are you putting decorations that you need the ladder anyway?
Suzan says - Not sure yet - but I know I'll need it so decided to bring it up
|" in this industry there are only 2 ways up the ladder
rung by rung - or claw your way up to the top
it's sure been tough on my nails "
John says - WHAT THE?
Suzan says - you don't like it?
John says - NO - I'd really prefer a Christmas tree
Suzan says - well we'll have that too of course
John says - Have you gone completely nuts? It's a crappy old ladder
Suzan says - It's a Christmas ladder - they're all over the place this year
John says - WHERE? I'VE NEVER SEEN A FILTHY OLD LADDER DECORATED
AS A CHRISTMAS TREE BEFORE - NOT EVER HOME DEPOT WOULDN'T EVEN
Suzan says - well they're
John says - AND WHAT THE HELL DOES A LADDER HAVE TO DO WITH CHRISTMAS
Suzan says - it's a decoration - it's not a representation of anything at all -
John says - yeah well I think it represents the fact that you're on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
John says - Please do not put this in front of the living room window
John says - You know only in this house would you see something like this, I mean it's ridiculous really
John says - You're serious, aren't you
John says - wait I have an old shitty tool box you can decorate
Suzan says - YOU DO? WHERE? BRING IT UP!
John says - Next you'll be putting lights on it ( staring at my ladder and shaking his head )
Suzan says - OMG - I completely forgot the lights!!!
John says - NO!!! GOOD GOD ISN'T ONE ENOUGH?
Suzan says - don't be silly - I need the other one to actually decorate the house now
John says - Why don't you use that one?
Suzan says - And don't act like you like it when everyone else goes on about it
John roars - Is that what you're expecting Suzan - you think everyone's going to go on about this thing?
John says - I think you're going to be a little disappointed my dear
John says - Welcome - welcome to our home - Merry Christmas - please don't mind the ladder................
and just wait everyone - there's going to be some humdinger conversations going on in this household
before the decorating is over........................
Wait till he finds out I'm off to Home Depot to pick up a couple of empty paint tins to fill to the brim with balls.......................that may just push him right over the edge.
Cost for this decoration - 0.00 - all items on hand!
