We Need a Little Christmas!

I am so excited about Christmas this year!
I'm already done with the downstairs decorations.
But, I was looking at the tree and decided it needed a garland.
Something sparkly. But I didn't want to go out and buy one
as I'm trying not to buy anything new unless it's thrifted.
So I came up with using some tinsel stems that I've had for awhile.
I cut them in half and then made loops to form a chain,
just like a paper chain.
Here is how it turned out.
I will take some pix of it on the tree asap!

I also finished decorating our bedrooms.
I wanted a garland above the bed, so I took some silver doilies from the thrift
and made them into snowflakes.
Then I strung them on yarn.
That's it!
Easy Peasy!

We also got our lights out before we got lots of snow and cold.

Of course, one string didn't want to work, but we left it on.

Sometimes they spontaeously come on for no reason I've found.

Then I put another string over the bad ones,

and guess what?

Now half of the old string is working!

Works for me!

Love how serene it looks!

Bye for now!
