I wanted to share some of my decorating projects for this season and take a break from topics on health. My favorite holidays are Thanksgiving and Christmas. Being the visual person that I am, I revel in decorating for the holidays.
My kids have a hard time understanding why our house is always the last to be decorated in our neighborhood. I get so busy this time of year that I just can't get to everything all at once. Over the years they have learned to adjust.
|My daughter made these for me
This arrangement didn't cost a dime. I made it from wild harvested Ilex branches, Holly and Christmas tree throw away cuttings.
I love making arrangements from nature's bounty.
This is the wreath on my front door.
I wouldn't have posted this photo except that the birds love to come and peck at the pine cones in this wreath. Being the bird lover that I am, I welcome them tearing at it as much as they want.
My daughter took this shot. She says that she wants to be a photographer. Just what I need! Another zany right-brained person in this household!
My daughter designed this table. I helped some.
Not bad for a nine-year-old.
Our Christmas Tree
I didn't have a centerpiece for my table, so I clipped some of the lower limbs off my tree and pulled some candles out of storage. Done!
Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season, merry Christmas and blessed new year!
