fresh pine roping

I can never seem to get enough of fresh pine roping at Christmastime!  One of the cottage style homes down the street from me drapes it across their white picket fence adorned with red bows and it looks classic and beautiful.  It is one of my favorite outdoor holiday decorations for sure.

My dad picked up a bunch of fresh pine roping for my mom and me at the big box store.  I was so excited to drape it across the sun porch windows, but it looked odd when I was done.  So I tried it here and there, inside and outside, until finally it ended up on the armoire and china hutch.  I left it alone, looking simple and natural.
