It's about 40 degrees and clear here in the pacific northwest. With the weather being nice and not working today, I decided (like everyone else!) to begin a holiday shopping.
Above.. I picked up three wreaths that I attached atop the windows in my dinning room and added a linen linen stocking..super simple.
I like to keep my holiday decor simple and natural looking.. paying tribute the forested area and animals that roam the area in which we are so fortunate to live.
I picked up pine cones and enjoyed a stroll through the poinsettia farm near my home.
Back home, I'm spritzing my orchid and pouring water on my paper whites that are snuggled up in various bowls around my home. If you missed my post on forcing bulbs, click here
I'm liking the way these blue ice skates are resting against a few baskets.
My husband and daughter put up our LGB Christmas Train. It travels around the tree and around the living room. When we entertain, it's constantly being de-railed as little ones attempt to operate it.
Over the years we've added cars.. some that transport, others blow bubbles and make a loud CHOO CHOO sound. It's great to wake
college kids or house guests up when we need to get going.
A few pictures of the cabinets. SO relieved the worst part is over. My desk is a bit disorderly .. I do know where to find things though :)
I went for a two toned look. Still missing hardware!
With the long holiday weekend, I'm behind on visiting my favorite blogs. I'll stop by asap!
Enjoy the start to the holiday season!
