Christmas Tablescape

Christmas is almost here....what happened to's almost gone!  

I was tired of the ruffled slip covers that  I had on the dining room chairs,  so off they      I may leave the chairs as is....or maybe reupholster the seats.....or put the ruffled slip covers back on...the only thing I can't do is paint them!  H put his foot down on that idea.   What do you think I should do?

Christmas Greenhouse

This is the first Christmas we've had our greenhouse and I couldn't resist decorating it for the holidays.    I started my decorating with fresh pine wreaths for the doors and a swag on the front eave,   The greeens started drying out pretty quick with our warm 70+ days,  so I switched over to artificial for the porch posts.
