Husband and I worked Saturday morning taking down our live (now deceased) Christmas tree. What a chore! Husband took the tree out of our flat, into the hallway, and carried it all the way to the recycling center. I was left with a trail of needles from our front door, into the building's hallway, down the marble stairs, and it all ended with a well gathered collection at the main front door. So still wearing
As for the rest of our Christmas decorations, I decided to leave up our lighted garland and miniature fir tree. In anticipation of dark winter weather upon us, I know some greenery will be a welcomed sign-of-life in our home. Left alone and looking a bit too much like Christmas, I decided the greenery needed a bit of flirty flare.
Besides being my birth month (a BIG zero ending birthday is fast approaching!), February is one of my favorite times of year. It was only natural that the Christmas greenery should now become fun lovin' in bright pinks and reds for St. Valentine's Day!
You know the saying "Less is more"? Well, that doesn't apply with what I did to the decorations. I wanted the garland to look like Cupid came in and spilled a bucket of hearts, cards, pictures, reds, pinks, X's and O's everywhere.
The items I used, I already had on hand. Most of the items were found at the Euro/Dollar store.
-Pink Christmas ornaments
-Red Christmas ornaments
-Hearts cut from Valentine paper
-Felt initial hearts
-Framed wedding photo
-Wire heart garland
Do you have any Christmas decorations that have stayed up for the duration of winter?
Loving This Beautiful Life,
