Goodbye Fall, Hello Winter! YAY! I packed up pumpkin mania and now it's time to start decorating for Christmas. Every year we get a fresh tree, so we'll wait a few more days before we get it (if we get it too soon, it gets dry and yucky and is a total fire hazard around Christmas time). Anyway, I haven't hauled out the giant tubs o Christmas crap from the garage yet, but I did manage to get a little bit done without them.
Hayden and I went to the park the other day:
"Hayden, want to take a walk to the park??"
"Ok, first you have to take a walk with mommy to look at all the pretty trees"
"ok mommy, then we can play, right?"
"look at the pretty trees Hayden"
"So pretty mama"
"Hold on one more minute ok, mommy is busy"
Anyway, as you can see, I gathered up some branches at the park. I brought them home with me and spray painted them white. I knew I wanted to have a twiggy display of some sort, and I wanted to try to use my new flea market metal bucket thingy. I thought floral foam would be a good way to secure them in the bucket, but since I didn't have any on hand, I had to improvise. See......
etsy shop. Cute :)
After the photo shoot, I moved them to their more permanent location and spiffed them up a bit :) Here are some pics...
Thanks to Mother Nature, I have a simple, pretty, wintery, twiggy display. I like it :)
(now if only my kids wouldn't keep asking me to move it so they can see the tv. arg.)
This is only the tippy top of my holiday decor ice berg. Stay tuned!
