Steve and I stayed holed up inside yesterday because it was so cold - 52 degrees.
With a fire in the fireplace to make the house cozy,
I finished decorating the tree and then tackled both the front and back yards.
I saw a cute post about decorating with socks on The Quintessential Magpie and remembered that I had mittens in the attic from a Christmas garland a few years ago.
Metal letters spell out Christmas on the mittens - there wasn't room for M E R R Y.
Last week I painted the Merry Christmas sign on an old cabinet door.
I couldn't get the polka dot knob off, so it remains on the cabinet door.
The metal tree is a favorite purchase a few years ago and was the only Christmas tree in the house for all the years we were traveling during the holidays.
The house is decorated, the tree is up, Steve hung the lights, both the front and back yards have a little "Christmas".
Now I have to get busy baking, shopping, wrapping . . . I guess I won't be relaxing this week.
