This morning I put up the only Christmas tree I am going to do this year. It's a skinny 5 ft. tree on the edge of my kitchen counter looking toward the family room.
Each time ornies fell to the floor, everything was a jumble and I had to redo it. It ended up taking way more effort than I expected. At least it will be easy to take down. I only had to haul up one plastic bin.
It's all decorated with candy ornaments, gingerbread men and cookies (years ago I made all the gingerbread men & cookies).
The top has a big candy cane with sprigs of red/white lollipops. I think I bought the sprigs about four years ago and this is the first time I used them.
I put a big bow of the gingerbread man ribbon across the front of the box it sits in to cover the electrical cords.
The only other decorating I am planning to do is to cut down some fresh greens from this border in my yard to make a big arrangement of real greens.
I may do that tomorrow. Right now the bushes are covered with snow. Tomorrow it is supposed to be warm enough to melt all the snow.
Have you all been doing Christmas decorating?
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
