Almost Finished with Decorating ..........



One of my favorite things about the holidays is the decorating , nothing elaborate , just lots of simple old fashioned touches of red and green , here and there. I love using natural greens and berries , but this year I've used real cedar greens but fake berries because of all the little Grands running around. I usually decorate right up to Christmas , adding a little touch each day or changing something I'm not satisfied with (LOL). The bottom photo is one of the grapevine wreaths I made last year , my daughter found this angel with grapevine wings at a thrift store awhile back , she looks right at home nestled in there. I hung the angel wreath over the mantel , but later decided she would look better in the kitchen. Now I have an oval wreath with a bow and cedar greens hanging over the mantel , it looks much better with the beanie baby tree. So , are you through with decorating or do you keep adding touches up to Christmas ?

I'm about done - though I did add lights to the lamp post in the driveway today. I like to get it all done and then sit back and enjoy it. Or enjoy it while rushing about - either is fine. LOL

I Love your candy cane decs. BEAUTIFUL! I Love a simple old fashion Christmas!
I'm always adding a few touches daily. But for the most part I finish early and enjoy the true meaning of Christmas!

That looks so good and yummy. Our tree this year is red and white like a candy cane. Good job.
