This year I'm handmaking all holiday decorations and started over the long weekend. When we bought our tree, the sweet employee allowed me take all the tree clippings I could wrangle! I've since been up to my eyeballs in sap and made over 40' of fresh garland for the front windows. I'm still not done decking the halls, but getting there a little at a time—and the smell of fir in my home is to die for!
I'm itching to do more inside, but only got to the tree so far. We opted for big colored bulbs this year and it's an instant party each night the tree is lit. But the silver tinsel draped on each branch tip is my absolute favorite; it's the icing on the cake!
Have you begun the holiday trimming at your home? Sticking to traditions or mixing it up and trying something new?
