Every year I vow to decorate our house for the seasons and every year I am rushing around at the last minute (the 30th of October for Halloween, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and the 23rd of December for Christmas) putting up the same old decorations. But not this year.
This year I was hell-bent on decorating for fall…..here it is only October 4th (Happy Birthday to my sweet friend Denny) and I’ve already got pumpkins on the porch and, as of a few moments ago, a new wreath on the door. I made a burlap wreath – thanks youtube – and embellished it with some pretty ribbon, a few sprigs of orange berry garland and a cute little chalkboard.
The project took me about 30 – 45 minutes to complete (a little more if you factor in the time to drive to Michael’s twice) and was quite easy once I got the hang of it. I even bought some extra ribbon to festoon the house and/or to use on my Thanksgiving table.
What’s next? I’m not quite sure……I’ll think it over this evening while I’m eating dinner. “What’s for dinner?”, you ask. Coffee-Rubbed Filet of Beef and Brussels Sprouts with Coffee-Molasses Gastrique. With that in mind, I’ve got to run……it’s 7:01 and I’ve got things to do!
