Can y'all stand one more holiday decor thread?

Sorry, it's not the White House, but wanted to share with you the beautiful d�cor from our neighborhood CC. We went down to dinner last night and I was magically transformed. I was more interested in taking photos than I was eating! Wish I had taken more...especially of the outside.


This tree looked like it was cut straight out of the wild. I have never seen such an enchanted tree. Branches of all lengths and sizes. Grapevine wound around and throughout. Ornaments and fruits placed here and there. Made you want to step inside the tree!

Wreaths down hallways (there were two hallways decorated like this)

Not sure what to call this, but it was gorgeous! The camera does not do it justice. I think I was too close to the subject.

Outdoor favorite (grapevine balls hanging in all the grounds trees.) I wish I had taken a wide angle shot of the clubhouse fa�ade. Twinkling lights everywhere!

All the above done by the landscaper for the neighborhoods common grounds.

Hope you enjoyed!

RE: Sea Pearl needs a backsplash... (Follow-Up #77)

Peke, I haven't seen you on the forum for awhile (but have been here less myself lately). Have you seen the fabulous encore tiles several GWers have used? Did you see how my backsplash turned out? I'm very happy with it though install wasn't ideal and I worry about the amount and quality of my grout lines. It has the mop without being delicate and I think the colors would look really nice with seapearl.

You'll need to use these symbols with no spaces to start to make it bold. (Don't type in and)
< and b and >
Then your word.
Then < and / and b and > is the end to making it bold.

Anything you put between those sequences will be bold

You can also do it < and i and > at the beginning and then your word and then < and / i and > to make it italic italic

You can also do it < and font color="red" and > at the beginning and then your word and then < and / and font color and > at the end to make it red

Whatever you put between these symbols < > at the beginning is what it will do, such as b for bold, i for italic, u for underline etc.

If you forget the ending section or don't use the / symbol in the ending section everything thereafter will continue to be bold or red or italic, etc. Confusing?
If you look online there are HTML cheatsheets. Sometimes you have to use color codes for non-standard colors
