I am enjoying seeing some of my Santa collection that I have had packed away for the past few years.
I put them in this curio cabinet in the dining room It's hard to get a decent photo because the walls are mirrors, but you get the idea.
I used a shawl for the tree skirt and I really like the effect. I think I bought that shawl when I lived in Ft. Lauderdale, which was in 1975! I never wear it as a shaw. I just use it to decorate. It's been on the dining table, on the coffee table and hanging from many china cabinets. I think it's one of the most versatile decorating props I own!
I have not done much tonight. I had about a 9-hour work day, came home and puttered a little with the three trees on top of the living room china cabinet, made popcorn for dinner (DH is not home tonight) and now I'm blogging. That's about all I feel like doing. The house is a disaster with boxes of decorations still sitting all over the family room. I have not put them away because I still have not decided if I am going to put up the main tree. I will decide this weekend.
Here are the three in the living room. I removed the blue lights and stuck some branches in them and some gold stars. Then I stuck a couple of gold deer up there. I still need to put some quilt batting around the trees to simulate snow.
I seem to be drawn to tree branches. I use them in all sorts of centerpieces and now even on Christmas trees. They were up there in a vase and when I took the vase down I had to find a place to put them so, I said, "why not?" and I shoved them in the trees. :) Not for everybody, but I like it.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
