15 days

We've had a break in the least for today..not tomorrow.
Outside I go!
Front Door

More green..when you don't know what else to do..add  more green.
Some of my decor can get a little rambling. first tree I've put up to far.
Sorta' Charlie Brown with some paper stars.
Jack's Candy Canes
He loves these things!

Back Door

If you look closely, you'll see that all my decorations are not real.
My way is to mix it up.
I don't usually go to far out, I keep it simply
Keep it Country.

I thank you for coming by for a visit.
Merry Christmas!

19 Days

I'm counting it down.
Are you?
For me, it's a little here and a little there. I enjoy the building in to the decorations and I like to see everyone's expressions as they come home from school or work.
It's makes every day a little more special for me.
Today, I've put together a little winter arrangement made from
 an old pickle jar, a bed spring,  and a old Pepsi bottle.

Who out there remembers
 when PEPSI came in a bottle like this?

Now that will tell your age....

I wanted a wooden tray to display my arrangement in 
with Christmas just around the corner
I'm not thinking to spend money on 
that right now 
so here goes..
Strawberry flat & some spray paint,
I hope this comes out like I'm hoping.

Do you need some snow?
A bar of Ivory Soap & a grater
You've got it!
I think I like it. I also think it needs some more greenery.
That tends to be my fix for a lot of things.

You know I needed more wreathes.
One for the mirror 

One above the kitchen counter.
It doesn't show as well in the picture 
I've used more
chicken wire & chippy bulbs.

That's it for today.
I'm ready for another cup of coffee.
Thanks for stopping by.

More wreathes!
I need more... I need more!

I've sorta' put a different twist to an
old idea.
The panels on my little cabinet can be removed 
I slid them out and covered with some
stenciled aluminum foil.
I tried going through some paper I already had but nothing suited me so 
try this..try that..
I just used a very light hand and spray painted the aluminum foil.
I slid my spider plants underneath the cabinet.
All my plants from the porch were moved to the front room where we put our big tree up at;
I've been racking my brain where I was going with them all. 
Here's a start.

More ground cedar along with a few other Christmasy stuff.


There wasn't too much to this one.
Old Chicken Wire rolled into a Christmas Tree shape.
More spray paint.
A simple bow.


I like to pull this little Vintage Box/Purse at
I picked this up at my favorite place to shop
Larry's Variety.

When we opened it up at the register 
it contained  some 
 old ornaments;
Larry said," Awh..just take 'em."

So far, I've never taken them out; I just open the box at Christmas time.

I thank you so much if you've stopped by for a visit.
Merry Christmas!
