The finishing touch ~

I finished my Christmas decorating the day before Thanksgiving and I am pleased with how festive it looks but a little something more was needed - I wanted a touch of Christmas in the dining room. I gave some thought to adding greenery to the chandelier but decided instead to hang a wreath on the mirror. 

I used young, pliable branches from my crabapple trees to make the base for the wreath, it's rather fun to weave them together and and they give a nice lasting, but naturalistic effect.

Then I found a very delicate and sparkly garland at Michaels, I simply wound it around the base and added a ribbon. Easy, pretty and something I can use over again. I store all of my wreaths in large plastic bags in the basement.

With the decorating finished I must now give some thought to making my cards, and buying gifts of course.

I hope all of your holiday plans are going well.

Thank you for stopping by.

~ Merry Christmas ~
