Christmas 2009!

There is just nothing more beautiful and festive than seasonal greenery at Christmas time. Whether it is the sight of glossy Magnolia over a door, the distinct, fresh smell of Cedar garland draped over a mantle, or the classic Christmas scent of a fir tree adorned with ornaments that each have their own meaning. Ahhh.....why can't we have these sense-evoking, beautiful greens in our homes all year??? Oh yes, I remember now. Because they are such a mess and pain to take down?!? Yikes. I don't know what a holiday season would be without them though! They truly are FANTASTIC!

My favorite tree we did this year!! No ornaments...just red ilex berries, pine cones, and cotton stalks decorated this tree! It was finished off with a burlap bow on top and burlap fabric as the skirt.
