A Bit Of Sunshine



As I continue with more decorating and everyday chores this morning the sun is making a appearance after very early morning storms and showers.... My quest for zero dollar decorating and to be very simple as I have shown you in the above pics will be taking place yet the next few days... I have a picture of my 5 window bay window in my living room that has a small white tree tucked in a aged silver trophy urn...White Christmas lights have been tucked under lace for a touch of romance.... and everyday treasures still on display... The other picture is of a ledge that is my small entry to my home... Again just tucks of winter has been added with everyday treasures... Snowflakes appear in all the areas thus far....
I am lacking any more white or cream that I had in storage and the whole idea was to simplify and not use as much so I will be trying to come up with something for my kitchen window today..... I found a few icicles that I may use but they aren't as large as I would like but maybe I can make them work .... Sometimes I have to resort to plan 2 however...
As the house is getting dressed for the winter and holiday season so comes the thoughts of opening the home up to family and friends.... I love the shimmer of glittered objects and the light bouncing from them.... Yesterday... I cleaned off a little serving table that I have in my dining area with the desire of making it a candy bar from now on till Christmas... Halloween candy for the week.... nuts and goodies for everyday and Thanksgiving and of course Christmas... I have a idea in mind but it is a work in progress yet... What I would desire would be to purchase a couple more lovey jars but I am not going to do that... so I may use a couple canning jars with some tags or similar... I will work it out and just make it work....
As I sit by my large living room window I hear the bouncing of wagons and grains being hauled to the elevators that some of the farmers were able to get in the fields and maybe shouldn't been this weekend as we received more showers...As you can view in the picture of the window edge the leaves are congregating on the ground outside... I will take down my fall decorating from the front porch as soon as they have a chance to dry out the next couple days... Looks a bit odd to see Winter in the window and Halloween and fall out of doors.... Hope all enjoyed a weekend with family and friends and this week brings contentment and joy... To be continued.....

Your Christmas decorations are coming along just fine Marietta, they look lovely! Once you get going, you just want to keep going, don't you? It's nice to unpack things and use them differently than last year. Keep enjoying yourself! Hugs, Ira

I love the bottle brush trees. There is something very calming about white decor.

You are way ahead of me on your decorating Marietta. I probably won't haul out any Christmas until after Thanksgiving or maybe a tad before. Love all the glitter and glam of the season.
