Wow can you believe it’s December already? I finally worked up the ambition to rummage around in my Christmas bins to find a few things to decorate the open farmhouse shelves in the dining room.
I’ve decided I won’t be officially decorating for Christmas this year but rather winter decorating. I’ve picked things that are more neutral and wont look so holiday-ish as the winter progresses.
I figured I couldn’t go wrong with using mini pine trees, deer sheds (antlers), a string of patio lights (after all this spot is dark and now it has a beautiful warm glow about it), a glittery church, and my random black and white decor that’s always there.
I brought totes up from the basement and the shelves were the first area I started with. This is the first year I can remember that we don’t have a tree. I normally go out into our field, thin out the pines, and drag home some Charlie Brown tree.
I really wanted to get back to basics and make life easier with less time spent decking out the cabin this year. So that’s what I’m doing. I doing what makes me happy and what I’m comfortable with.
I love seeing everyone else’s beautiful decor but it’s just not for me at this stage in my life. I’m wondering if we all get that way when our kids no longer live in the home?
This is the first Saturday of the month and that means I’m joining in with several of gals to share with you some of our favorite cozy ideas for December. Our host Jennifer is kind enough to put it all together for us. The links to the other post are below and I know you’ll want to click through them and get some new ideas.
Thank you for dropping by today and prayers for a wonderful December to you all!
