Warm Holiday Wishes From My Home to Yours

December 22, 2017

Is everyone ready for the big day? I am pretty well all set, just waiting for the family to arrive!

My Christmas decorating is pretty simple again this year, just a few Holiday vignettes around the house which makes me happy:

I kind of went overboard on making snow jars because I was having so much fun with them:

I think I like taking the photos as much as I like the decorating.

The Prettiest Wrapping Paper of All

December 12, 2017

All these years I have been spending big bucks on assorted wrapping paper, bags and boxes to try and give ‘pretty’ looking gifts. But this year I realized the most beautiful wrapped gifts of all are wrapped simply in plain brown paper:

Winter Scene with Apothecary Jar and Faux Snow

December 4, 2017

Something I started playing with last Christmas while decorating and really enjoyed was snow-filled apothecary jars and cloches:

red truck

I have always loved cute little miniature accessories so this project was right up my alley. Simple and festive!

You can see last years faux snow projects here.

It is literally a 5 minute project. For supplies you need faux snow (or salt or baking soda works too), an apothecary jar or cloche, a few mini trees, and mini sleigh or any other miniature figurine:

All you do is, cover the base of the jar/cloche with craft snow, add the mini trees and  figurine, and the sprinkle some more craft snow on your winter scene. Told you it was easy!

Here are a couple snow scenes I made this year:snowmanRead More

Simple and Beautiful Christmas Centerpieces

December 17, 2016

For Seasonal table centerpieces, I always like to have something  that is easy to move if necessary. You never know what the dining table will be used for next. Eating, playing games, baking cookies, you just never know. That’s why I like to stick with very simple ideas:

silver and blue

And beautiful at the same time of course! Something I like to keep out on center stage until the Season winds down:

I love using  items for decorations from nature such as pine, pinecones, cranberries and nuts because they are pretty and free:Read More
