How was your holiday? It was a very different one for me. Simple, less hectic and laid back. Actually, I had no choice but to pull back as I had foot surgery earlier in the month. Yes, I’m rocking that infamous designer surgical shoe. LOL
I’m so happy I was able to repair my vintage ornament wreath that had fallen apart. Made a banner using mailing tags
and created a swag of small pine cones using jute string.
Hung some ornaments here
Dyed a drop cloth remnant blue and added some felt trees.
And when my holiday basket dried out way too soon
I came up with this super quick alternative instead.
I also made some Christmas stockings using drop cloth fabric but can’t seem to find those pics.
Anyway, “use what you have” decorating is my favorite thing to do and was a great distraction from my healing foot. I actually enjoyed pulling back and not getting lost in the usual hustle and bustle.
Thankfully, no holiday blur this year. A detour from the usual holiday routine and traditions can be a good thing. Do you agree?
