I have been spending a little time in my Christmas boxes, I thought I had so much more than I am finding, maybe it is just that I need a change. I am using a lot of bright red in the living room this year. I saw this idea in one of my Christmas decorating magazines and remembered I had a big gold frame that I had thrifted this summer down in the basement. The wreath was a 60% off deal this weekend at Joanne Fabrics. I still hadn't hung anything on the wall since painting this summer (I am indecisive if nothing else) so I started thinking about what I wanted on the walls for the holiday season. I think this turned out pretty well. The daughters looked at me like I was looney when I told them about it, but loved it once it was up:>) I also had some old silk poinsettias stored away, and had gotten this little carriage at a yard sale for $1 this summer and set it aside. I stuck some foam in it and added the flowers and now it sits in the bay window. I am having a great time finding new ways to use things and doing something a little different this year. Decorations I have used in the past just seem a little tired and I love to create new things. I will still use our family ornaments on the tree, but I think everyone enjoys a change. What have you done to decorate this year?
