happy holidays everyone! i am getting started on my decorating and wanted to give you a glimpse at the early stages!
after days spent trying to find the "perfectly imperfect" tree...i finally found exactly what i was looking for! a blue spruce with sprawling, untrimmed branches! you can imagine the looks i get when i explain to folks that i want a tree that hasn't been "groomed". (think charlie brown tree)...so here it sits in my garage with 14' high ceilings almost scraping the top.
now, beings my living room ceilings are 9' high & i place the tree in a vintage urn...i better sharpen my ax!
the following has nothing to do with my decorating but she is one of my first collages and i just wanted to share!
oh! the excitement of arriving home last night to discover my fresh shipment of boxwood had arrived! i feel a craft coming on in the form of some wreath creating today! and nestled in a bough of heavenly boxwood are the vintage shiny brights i happened on @ a thrift shop for...$.98 causing more excitement...
on the note of boxwood. it has been both a personal & patinaWHITE favorite for years! i made this wreath LAST year and it still looks fabulous hanging in my dining room. i keep it up for all seasons! stars to me are a must no matter what time of the year it is!
so there you have it...a little look at some holiday teasers! i will of course share more when i get caught up on trimming the tree and decking the halls! so enjoy this "wonderful time of the year"! and thanks for stopping by!
a merry and bright day to you all!
