I finally broke with my wreath and hung a simple string of pinecones on the door.
Always use real fruit -it allows you to go over the top with the decorations a little more without looking like a demented florist.
Watch your candles carefully. It could have been soooo much worse if Granpa hadn’t walked thru the living room when he did… I’ll leave it at that.
The little white flowers are still growing profusely in my garden (I used them on the Tartan Thanksgiving table several posts back) I love to fill this antique church “offerings bag” with flowers every Christmas.
Remember- no rules! I think God would be pleased.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays To All!!
And many, many thanks to all my Slim Paley readers for your comments and support these first few fledgling months of my blog. Its been great fun for me. You’ve been the wind at my back, not the spit in my face (oh, alright, I’ve been watching “Modern Family” So funny!)
