I'm almost finished decorating, I have put up a couple of tress and a few of my many Christmas items. I have so much Christmas stuff in boxes in the basement that I don't even bring it all out anymore. I sift through the boxes and every year I seem more selective in what I put out.
I seem to have gotton to be more of a purist with Christmas and decorating. I love to decorate with natural items from the outside. I cut pine from my own pine trees in my yard I bring in pinecones and of course the winter berries oh I love the red winter berries.
I have my little window lights in the windows, my old sleds outside resting on the steps as if someone had just got finished sledding.
I love the old early look of Christmas
Cotton Batting Santas, old mittens, old stockings on the mantel. Lots of my early pieces get a touch of pine to bring out the Christmas feel.
Next, I will go outside and put some white lights on my little old fence in the front yard with a roping of evergreen and some greens on the old sleds.
Bring out the old wool blankets to decorate with, old bowls filled with fresh pine, pomegrantes and oranges
Candy jars filled with old fashioned candy canes
And a wreath on the doors
and maybe if I'm lucky I will string another garland of fruit.
I'll post pictures as soon as it all looks festive
Till we meet again~ Blessings Cheryl
