I didn't do much decorating this year but I did manage to do the mantle. I also pretty-upped the staircase but the lights aren't working so I won't be sharing a photo. There's a few of my favorite pieces scattered here and there but a lot of the decorations remained in the boxes. I'm enjoying this simple little Christmas!
This sled usually goes out on the porch but I didn't decorate the porch this year...I hope Santa won't notice...so it found a place by the fireplace. I used some fresh evergreens and some clear bulbs, pine cones and snowflakes. The bow is missing because I couldn't find any ribbon. I know I have some around here somewhere.....I'll probably find it after Christmas, that's usually the case.
I found this basket at a local swap meet for 5.00 a couple of summers ago. I left it in its "raw" state because of the beautiful patina it has. I filled it with small cut logs and topped it with fresh evergreens and some pinecones. I found the pinecones I used for this and the sled piece while I was walking Sadie one afternoon. I love to place this basket in front of the fireplace which makes Mr C fuss with concern that the house is going to burn down. Don't worry, I move it before we light the fire.
Till next time
