This year I have been very behind on my Christmas decorating.... and it just doesn't feel like Christmas until I have my tree up! So last night I finally started with the outside. It was actually one of the warmer days we have had even though there was snow.
I usually just decorate my porch but this year I wanted to do something more. I have three window baskets under my big front window and after watching Sarah Richardson's Christmas special last weekend, I had some great ideas for it!
I love how they turned out. The white glitter branches and poinsettias I got for 50% off at a local home decor shop that was going out of business, the pine bows - free from my parents forest :) In total the project was about $70.
Took the opportunity to play around with my camera and try and get some good night shots. Its so hard! So these were as good as I could do... and I am pretty sure my neighbors think I am crazy since this was about 10:00 last night!
This week I also stopped in at Scrappy Chic to pick up my new kit... which is awesome! I got a few surprises as well - Check out this card that Angela made for me....
I am in LOVE with banners which you might already know.... but the PTI banner kit is so cool. I am very jealous Angela ;)
Also - Angela got me some Tea for my birthday. My favorite kind!!!! Look how cute the tag is too. She is super talented this girl and super sweet :)
Alain just pulled up with our Christmas tree --- a real one is the only way to go --- so I am off to decorate!
Have a great weekend (only 2 weeks to Christmas!!!)
