Going, Going, Gone!
I have to put up reinforcements everyday!
There were a few complaints from the non-residents. So we had to put up ALL the stockings!
I don't want to mention any names cause I wouldn't want to embarrass Katie! ;-)
Duct tape, nowadays? Isn't it supposed to be this incredible tape that is a "cure all"? Isn't it the gift of choice with college graduates (okay, I made that up!) But seriously doesn't duct tape fix everything?
Hubby and I used masking tape to put up the stockings and garland on the mantle... excuse me, it all came falling down... many times...
So we reached into our bag of tricks and pulled out the duct tape (honestly, I think I've seen this on cars holding them together while the driver speeds down the road)! We were oh so cocky knowing that the garland would never fall again. We laughed, we joked... there goes the varnish! Seriously, we put this stuff up knowing we would cause permanent harm to the mantle (but it was also high up and only our friends 6-7 and above would see it- of which we have NONE. So we were safe!)
Jokes on us the garland came tumbling down! The stockings fell one by one...
Hubby then heads to Home Depot and buys super strength duct tape because ya know maybe ours was old??? Do ya think?? No... even super strength duct tape is not doing the job... Any ideas? (BTW - the finish on the mantle is just fine)
