i can’t believe how many of you take down your christmas/holiday decorations so early! boy all that work and the day after christmas your tearing it all down. well if you come visit me, mine stays up until january 1st. at least.
with that being said, i did decide to change up one of my displays a bit earlier than usual. i don’t know about you, but i always struggle with decorating from january through march. it’s too early for spring … i’m not really into valentine’s decorations … and all the sparkle and color is gone from christmas … no wonder people get cabin fever (well those of us that live where the temperatures are below freezing and where there is snow on the ground six months of the year.)
anyway, you remember my christmas dining room display?
well, i cleared the decks, put on my thinking/decoration cap and created a seasonally appropriate display.
last year i bought several bags of those scented pinecones at 75% off at walmart. so i busted them out and used them as my inspiration.
what do you think?
i filled the glass globe jars with pinecones and tied on a metal snowflake with some twine.
i scattered some more pinecones around. (love that big one!)
i think that wood tray type this was once used in a toolbox to keep screw/nails separated. found it at a flea market a couple years ago.
i then added some pine and white berries to the vases.
seasonal without being christmas-y! i did it!
how do you decorate this time of year?
