Decking the halls
Decking the halls. My favorite Christmas tradition. Usually. This year I have had a total lack of motivation. Maybe because my kids are grown and we have no little ones around to make magic for... or maybe because we haven't had that big dump of snow yet....or maybe my shoes are too tight.. or my heart is two sizes too small.
Whatever the reason, I decided to do a little cyber shopping for inspiration and found some amazing wreaths on Williams-Sonoma.com.
I love the natural, not too gaudy, look when it comes to Christmas decorations and found this Bay Leaf wreath. Not only does it smell great, but you can use it in your kitchen as well!
Or, try a cluster of pink pepperberries, & blue juniper berries nestled in noble fir with eucalyptus leaves.
How about the soothing scent of English lavender?
The perfect "green" gifts - A simple pine treat wrapped with a bow.
Or a basket of greens for the front door?
These all make beautiful decorations AND gifts. Send your gifts early so the lucky recipient can enjoy them all season long.
"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more." ~Dr Seuss
