It was 82 here in Texas today.
It's December 1st.
For a girl from Wisconsin and Minnesota this is still hard to believe. But, I'll take it!
So instead of working on my inside, which I really should do as I host my Book Club on Thursday and I haven't done my house or read the book, but 82 degrees made me work outside.
I just used white, greenery, and pine cones in my decor and I plan to leave it up till it dries up and blows away or Easter. Whichever comes first:-)
I'll just go in a circle and show you the details.
First up is the view:-)
The main reason we added this room. We love to sit out here and listen to the fountain.
Here is my dollar store craft. This is incredible on several levels. First of all, I rarely shop the dollar store and I really rarely craft. That gene skipped a generation as both of my daughters love to craft as do both of their grandmas.
Me, not so much.
I bought a few of these large snowflakes with the intent to use them on the mantel, but I didn't care for that so I just used them for table decor. A little epsom salt on the candle and done.
I tried a few different looks on the mantel, but I like this one the best. Plain pine wreath, pine garland, pine cones and snowballs and snowflakes.
My epsom salt snowballs, and dollar store snowflakes.
On the hearth are 3 little birch logs we brought back from our cabin. We don't have much birch on our property so I really had to hunt for these. I really like using the logs so we will look a little harder this summer.
More of my snowballs. And a few little pieces of birch leftover and made into risers for my votives.
I tell you, for me, this is a lot of craftiness:-)
I just clipped some boxwood to put around my pillar candle.
On the counter I filled my tool box with clippings and pine cones and snowflakes.
Our little table got the left over decor and a few candles.
It's magical at night.
And I think with that I"m done. I love that I spent very little money. Just a few dollars at the dollar store, and I have decorated until Spring!
Next up, the playhouse needs a good scrubbing and then I'd better head indoors!
