I am sorry if I have been a bit out of touch. First off, I escaped -20 degree weather for this the past week.
Hubby and I took a cruise to celebrate our 25th anniversary that was in July.
It was warm and relaxing and fabulous!
But, I also, for the past month or so, only receive a few comments to my email, but most do not go there. I think it might have to do with Google+, but not sure. I can reply in the comments, but do you ever go back to a blog you have commented on to see if there is a reply? I do not. I will continue to work on figuring out the email thing. If you have any insight, I would love to hear it.
I thought I'd share the last bits of decorating I did before my trip. I create new decor most years, all with things I have on hand so it is affordable!
Here I hung my stockings and then added a few garlands I made.
Last year I removed the large clock for Christmas and the family went nuts. So I left it this year. It needed a little something to tie together the stockings and clock. As I have said before, I have no mantel--don't know if I ever will.
I hot glued some driftwood together, and then wired it to secure it.
A few fake sprigs of pine and berries
and a bow finished this mini spray.
I like a bit of decor (other than feet, remotes, cups) on my coffee table so I put three candles in a rusty vase,
set it on a tray to catch candle drips and added a bow and some vintage Christmas balls.
If you are still decorating, or need a little something extra, look around your home and through old decor and see it with fresh eyes.
