Making Merry.

 It's December 20th. I'm running a bit late this year.
My Christmas decoration boxes are finally put away!  Seriously.
Am I the only one?

Well, no matter. The living room is looking quite merry and unique.

I brought an old trunk in from the garage.
I brought in an old bed frame spring.
Oh, and the Mary statue from the garden.

Husband: "Um why are we dragging this stuff in?"
Me: "Because it's cool, you'll see."

I whipped up a banner off the computer.
(paper glued to cardboard, cut and hole punched, strung w/ twine - voila! banner.)

I pulled out the bulb wreath I made last year.
The mantle is brighter this year with the tar paper being gone
&  with the white crown moulding.

I used the Tonka Truck I'd used for Halloween.
I couldn't resist. It looks fun haulin' a tree.
The books to prop it up - are actually antique file/accounting folders.
I bought them at a garage sale last summer for $4.

While I was cleaning and arranging, the kids and I watched
Seven Bride for Seven Brothers.
Adam, Benjamin, Caleb, Daniel, Ephraim, Frank(incense) & Gideon.
We'll be humming it for days.  Those dancin' Ponitpee's.

Happy Tues!

  1. I see influences from the Bachmann house! I especially like your banner....I can't believe that you just whipped that up on the computer!

  2. I love the idea of hanging the wreath in front of mirrors. Thanks so much for sharing. I will follow on my way out so as I would love to visit again. I hope you will find the time to come visit my place and do the same. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and I look forward to engaging and supporting your blog in the New Year. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

  3. No...you're not the only one with last-minute decorating (as you saw from my recent post).

    eek! I absolutely love the bed spring! My husband doesn't even ask anymore with funny requests like these.

    Hope you have a Very Merry!



I love your comments! You sweet people, I love to hear your ideas.
Thanks for your patience and following the bkb!

It's no fun getting 40 comments on how super handy it is to purchase viagra.)
