Pine cones, glittered poinsettia, silver netting on stair railing
The red/white gingham adds a little nostalgia to all the silver/glitter/snow.
Michael’s had the aluminum ornaments in the $1 bin-so they were added to the railing last year.
stair railing-if it was within range-it got a splash of glitter, snow and silver paint
Reason for the Season-A Nativity we have collected through the years. Not to plug a company, but I love Willow Tree things, especially this nativity.
wreath above fire place-ornaments are from our first Christmas in MN 1989
Michaels, Jo-ann’s and Hobby Lobby can make a designer out of any of us. that little glittery bird is just what this spot was begging for…
Scented pine cones everywhere
a pre lit wreath hangs in our living room above a writing desk
Some old barn wood flower boxes work great for any season-I just make the arrangement in a black plastic insert and take it out when its time for storage.

Smaller barn wood planter with silk poinsettia by the drive
Wreath on outside lights by garage-these are always fresh
Old milk can with wreath and swag-note the absence of snow-it is like spring here!!! A cold spring, mind you, but spring nonetheless.
Centerpiece on the main dining room table-love, love, love silver and find polishing it a soothing experience.
more scented pine cones-I found this little box in OK once when we were shopping for iSissy3’s new house. We’ve laughed about it for years because it was so cheap, I argued with the clerk that she hadn’t charged us enough. Wish I had bought their entire inventory-I love little boxes
Honey graham bear sledding on peppermint sticks and a piece of chocolate-great activity when a family of little girls visited.
