I love the glow of the white lights and all my favorite ornaments mingling amongst them - but I know it's time - although I will likely only put away the ornaments today and leave the lights and the tree until Sunday :-)
I did want to share a tree idea that I found from our friends at re-nest, here. What an absolutely clever way to display ornaments and not take up a lot of space. This would be the perfect backdrop for my vintage and rustic ornaments. I put up three trees each year - one with nothing but animal ornaments (my favorite tree), one with all primitives, handmade and vintage decor and the last tree gets a more formal dress of red, white, blue, gold, silver and my collection of White House ornaments.
So, even though I have to put away the decorations for this season, I can still be thinking about Christmas.
Now, I am off to look for some scrap lumber...I know we must have some in the shed.
Oh Honey... I have an idea I want to run by you...
Enjoy your weekend and Happy New Year!!!!
