Six More

LR tree
same as last year

Even the spice cabinet gets a wee bit 

I went from doing a minimal to a medium.
My thinking was this - who knows how many more Christmases 
in this house there will be. It is Nick's first time here
in our home and all four have been 
under mega stress with their
It may look like a lot of work but it's not at all. It is still just plunking.
The vintage jars here are always out. I just swap out the
insides and then store the "swapped out" in the box
of holiday fillers. 

The table display took 2 minutes. I lay down 5 picks with stems toward center.
Quickly tucked in one strand of twinkle lights and lay the 
carved balls on top to hide the stems. Those same balls
are repeated on the table bowl and the sideboard. See previous posts.

Trees, deer, mercury glass and eucalyptus are everywhere.
Green, grey, brown and mustard are repeated
with black accents for good measure. 

The pink is just for surprise and a chuckle.

The gifts under the LR tree will be brown paper and black accents.
Some will set atop the black sled in front. 

While I am decorating I am purging 
anything not used this year.
( except for my beloved House of Hatten)
And I may just find a spot for it this year..
Now that tree takes time!

A Plunking We Will Go

 Gather greens and Plunk.

All reproduction, or new, Shiny Brites bought several yeas ago, 
with some other glitter stuff thrown in for good measure.

Below my views from couch each evening.
Whatever did we do before twinkle lights?

A tree in LR and small touches in bedrooms 
over next few days and it's fini.
