I am keeping it much simpler this year than I have in the past. No Elfcraziness like last year! Be sure to check it out.
I added a burlap garland to our tree this year. I cut strips of burlap, frayed the edges and stamped the words to our favorite Christmas tunes all along the strips. I used white acrylic paint and large foam stamps. Usually, I have many strands of the red wood beads and this year I doubled them and draped them.
On my china cabinet, I put the middle size tall, skinny tree with white lights and vintage ornaments in front of a mirror. My favorite shiny brights and santas are all grouped in this vignette.
I am going to hold my breath a few more days to add some fresh cedar and pine boughs. And I'll kick in the cookie baking in a few days. How are you treasuring the season?
My name is Kelley and I love all things related to making a home more homey. This means all crafts, sewing, cooking and hospitality are right up my alley. I come from a long line of women who happily and creatively make their homes a warm hug for all who enter. It is such a pleasure to have a vision of what could become of the raw materials, be they old furniture, textiles, or any yard sale finds. Bloom where you are planted....ahh, contentment.
