When I was single and living in an apartment back in Seattle my mom gave me a bunch of our old Christmas decorations to decorate the little place I called home. They had been ones I grew up with and held a very special place in my heart. I was notorious for throwing fits if my mom tried to change ANYTHING in our home, including our long standing Christmas decorations. I think I had my Kermit the Frog stocking hanger till I was in college.
I brought those Christmas decorations, sans Kermit, down to Oregon with me and as I was going through those boxes of decorations I found these guys and thought maybe I was finally ready for a change. It was time to give these guys an update.
Sticking with my rustic country Christmas theme I transformed them into this:
I’m not sure where I am going to put them yet but I can’t wait to start decorating my home next week. Okay, I know me and I’ll start decorating on Thanksgiving. I can’t help it. I’m writing this post as I listen to Christmas music. It’s a very happy time of year and I can’t help drag it out as long as I possibly can.
Thanks for stopping by!
