After my migraine finally lifted on Friday night, I got a second wind and inspiration from two places. One, the lovely holiday decor of Melanie over at Pretties and Posies.
Two, this picture from my photo folder titled "Ideas." This one was saved as "hutch idea" and I have no idea where I found it, I think it was from last year. So if it is yours please let me know and I'll give you credit!
I am going to keep it simple this year~ greenery, burlap, and plaid.
Let's start with the greenery. Thanks to big beautiful trees~
a windstorm, and a pair of clippers, on Saturday I brought home a bag of cedar boughs from my sister's farm.
I am taking some of the boughs to the shop to decorate our space, and some will be used in my home.
I found scrap plaid ribbon in my ribbon box, and tied it with burlap around little Dollar Tree topiaries. These ones are in my bathroom.
I put this one in a vase.
Here are some other photos of plaid I found from Country Living ~
I am just addicted to plaid around the holidays! It's so classic and cozy and festive. I'm going to wrap all my gifts in brown postal paper and plaid ribbon.
My holiday decorating got interrupted by the urge to make ornaments. We are putting a tree in our vendor space this week and wanted to fill it up. They turned out pretty cute! I will post pictures of them soon, as well as a few other things that will be making their way to the shop at Thanksgiving.
The flakes were trickling down slowly off and on all day.....slowly being the operative word. Not enough to equal a snow day for this cowgirl.
