There is one thing on my holiday to-do list that still isn't done - decorating the dining room for the Christmas dinner. I always tend to leave that to last since our dining room is holiday HQ for wrapping and crafting and other general messes.
I did get myself a tiny bit in gear on Sunday night by tackling the mirror in my dining room. After a wonderful smelling wreath from Green Valley arrived, I was inspired to get going. Last year I did a silverware snowflake wreath but I wanted to do something different. I used some bits and bobs I had laying around the house (except for the nuts and bolts, I had to make dole out a few pennies each for those) to make a Christmas Card display wreath. I added some peppermint candy as well to spell out 'JoY' just for a little more whimsy.
Obviously I'll have to do a bit more to the dining room to make it merry and bright but its a start.
I love having this years Christmas cards front and center but not all members of the household are impressed. Snooze.
