This is another cold, rainy, day. Just miserable outside. In fact, when I went out to open the chicken house door this morning, I had to be careful to keep from sliding in the mud. That problem was quickly solved with two heaping wheelbarrow loads of leaves! :)
Actually, there is not much to post. This I do know...as long as there is a cat in the house there will always be a little something to post about!
Wanting something different this year, I thought one of those big grapevine wreaths with lights added, would look pretty. Maybe hang it from that old cupboard on the front porch. So, I bring one of the brittle old wreaths inside to work on...Curious cats appeared from outta nowhere!
When we moved here in 1989, the property was covered in wild grapevines. Poppy took the time to make two really big grapevine wreaths from all that we pulled out of the trees. These wreaths have been used on the front porch for twenty four years! These wreaths have been covered with live cedar twigs, berries, and pine cones again and again, year after year. Decorated, washed with the hose, and moved from place to place.
Decorating is fun. But the thing I have the most trouble with is the tree. No matter how I try, how much I add or take away...the tree never looks right...especially in a photograph. Everything looks a little off???
The problem may be, this is not a live tree! Poppy and I used to always chop down a cedar for Christmas. Then we worried about the trees we were killing for a mere two weeks pleasure!
A scrappy looking wreath...
Suppose you can guess who added this last bit of decor... :)
Thank you for stopping by.
