Before I start adding Christmas decor to the cottage I need to do some dusting
moving of items, reorganization etc. - as you can see I'm not exactly a minimalist.
I did want to share the tall decoupaged 'rose pot' before moving it as I mentioned
recently to dear blog friend Gina that I used to paint and embellish clay pots.
Most I sold on through a local shop, but have a few I kept, this being my favorite
as I love dragonflies.
I've not started on Christmas decorating yet other than buying poinsettias for
the staircase a couple of days ago - and whilst there at the garden center I picked
up this small pot of ivy which I'll probably work into my dining table centerpiece.
I know I'm not purchasing any new factory-made ornaments, I don't need any
and, when I looked at prices of some beauties at the garden center gift shop,
I almost fell over from shock!
To make your own really stunning ornaments be sure to visit my fabulous
Utah artist friend Gina at http://ginaceramics.blogspot.com
who's sharing her ideas for painted glass balls - they are so beautiful.
This afternoon I'm attending a Christmas music concert. This evening I will
complete the Christmas cards ready for mailing on Monday - I promised myself
no decorating until they were done.
Tomorrow Bob will assist with getting the boxes down from the attic and
wave my wand work hard to bring the magic of Christmas to the cottage. . . .
. . . . and I just bet most of you are way ahead of me, right?
