Join me for a peek around the house, won’t you?
These are peeks of decor last year (2011).
I have rarely planned or thought out
a holiday decor scheme…instead, it is
about intuition, white lights, and creativity
with stuff I already own.
Think 19th century crockery
I melted leftover candle taper stubs
and filled these vintage crocks from England.
Think indoor swing gets busy with
boxwood branches from the yard.
Think kids’ table warmed with lambskin,
and an old box greets new apples.
Think teeny cup by artist Rae Dunn
reinvented as a wee vase in a window sill.
Think handfelted wolf baby
poised for love.
Think beyond evergreens to ordinary
herbs such as rosemary (thriving outside since May).
Cost: still ZIP
Think a simple pop of Christmas red
crowning prayer books in the hutch.
Smells heavenly, I tell you.
Think…like I always say…
nothing says HAPPY HOLIDAYS
like ‘bloater paste.’ (see photo above)
You’re still reading!?!
Holy holidays, just making sure.
Think natural, no cost, not-so-obvious gestures
around the house this year on your quest
to make it merry.
You’re cute when you’re frugal, btw.
Hey! Are you new around here?
Cool. I would love to have you follow.
Sending love and peace this holiday season
to meet you where you are planted
and to encourage you to
never be afraid to hope.
Peace to you right where you are.
