Every year I fill our urns with greenery for the Christmas season. In the past, it would mostly be from the spruce trees in our backyard. We have a long row of them for privacy and every year I give a few of them a haircut at Christmas.
In recent years, we have stocked cedar and other greenery in our store. That has made my urns much more elaborate. A little of this and a little of that. Some real and some silk. I am not a flower arranger by any stretch of the imagination but I am happy with the results.
This year I also strung some faux pine garland between some posts on our deck. I added some rope with various decorations tied to it as well.
One of my oldest decorations is a couple of bells simply made from a couple of terracotta pots turned upside down. I put this together years ago and still like the look!
Now that the outside is done, it’s time to turn my attention to the inside. I have been busy at the store in November so when December comes, look out!
