I did something a little differently this year. I decided to forego all of my smaller decorations throughout the house and focus solely on greenery. Oh Mylanta, what a breath of fresh air that has been!
I’ll have to show you what that meant for me next week, but here’s just a sampling. I wanted to bring the natural colors from the Christmas tree into the foyer.
However, since the foyer is lighter, I decided to throw some peacock feathers in there. My mom lives in town by a farmer who owns a peacock farm. How cool, right? She picked up a bunch of peacock feathers for me some time ago. And yes, she’s one of those people who would walk up to a house and ask if she could take some cuttings from their wildflowers. And yes, I was the one (still am!) who was hiding on the floor of our car.
Can you tell I’m a fan of feathers? Can’t get enough of them, and they’re such an inexpensive way to spruce up greenery.
So what do you see when you walk in the front door? You know…all two of you? Let’s just say if Publisher’s Clearing House ever comes to visit me, they’ll have a nice entry to film.
And of course…the night shot. Gosh, I wish cameras captured the beauty of this thing. Guess you’ll just have to trust me on this one.
