I’ve spent most of my “extra” time this week, decorating the front of my house.
This year, Christmas decorating is a little more difficult than in the past.
We still have our house on the market and I feel that it
has to look “perfect” for people coming through.
“Perfect” is unrealistic with 5 kids and jobs, and schools and, and, and …
I’m finding I have a hard time realizing where to stop.
One example is these Christmas planters I made for the front.
I couldn’t possibly just have normal planters. Where you just have a shrub with lights coming out of the planter.
No, I have to cut off all of the old “fall-ish” dying flowers….
Then I bobby-pinned the ivy so it wrapped around the side and didn’t show, and added two different kinds of evergreen clippings to the dirt in the planter.
Then I took different sized bulbs from the dollar store and put a bobby-pin through them, and pinned them on the evergreen clippings.
I really do like the way they turned out, I just feel with the small amount of “extra” time I have, they may be slightly excessive (my husband is shaking his head and laughing).
How is your Christmas decorating going?
Are you going simple, or all out?
