One of the great things about going to my Dad's house for Thanksgiving is that their yard is full of trees and bushes which I can use for my window boxes. Each box has a combination of pine, yew and holly.
Remember those old ice skates I picked up while junking a few months ago?
One pair peeks out of the basket on my door with some pine and holly.
Even though it is almost winter, love still blooms.
Come and have a cup of hot cocoa on the porch!
One corner of our porch has the "sister" tree. It is about five feet tall and narrow. Rebecca and Lily decorate this one all by themselves. All of the ornaments are pink and very feminine.
Remember those sleds I got a while back? One is now in my living room!
Everyone keeps their sleds in the living room right?
Here's the living room. Notice Lily annoying Sophie.
Lily got in trouble for stealing Sophie's stick. She had to sit on the step. It's the big punishment around here.
Notice her playing with the little Christmas tree while she was supposed to be sitting and contemplating her misdeeds. She earned another three minutes on the step for that.
The chandelier above the dining room table got a sprucing too.
In the kitchen I have a small tree decorated with old cookie cutters.
We've had these red translucent ones forever.
Back in July I found this silver ice bucket. I knew it would lend a bit of tarnished glamor to my holiday decorating.
Are you in the Christmas mood yet?
