Hola Cottage Fix friends! Are we all decorating, and baking, and shopping, and being jolly little Christmas elves? I’ve only started with the first – decorating. And we still haven’t had the time to get together to decorate our tree. The kiddos are extra busy with school this time of year. And I like to make a big production of it, ya know? Christmas music, hot cocoa, and a roaring fire. And maybe I’ll wear my red pajamas, it’s fun like that! I have yet to do any shopping, or any baking though. Yikes, I’m a bad little Christmas elf I’m afraid.
Every Christmas I like to bring in as much fresh greenery from the garden as I can think up to use it. I wasn’t going to bring any in this year because sometimes it doesn’t last until Christmas and then I get all bummed taking down dried out greenery before Christmas even gets here. But what the hey – it’s pretty!
A swag made of rosemary with a couple of sprigs of this and that secured with a red velvet ribbon. This little cutie is my favorite Christmas decoration so far I’d say.
Rosemary filled pitchers on the entry row of hooks. This smells so good when you first walk indoors.
Next year I’m considering going all out with a giant tree (I know, I’ll shuffle the furniture around and make room) and miles of fresh cedar roping. Ya know how you see something somewhere and it makes you wish you had gone in a different direction. That happens to me, a lot! With the bathroom remodel going on and everyone being so busy, a simpler Christmas is definitely right for us this year. Maybe I’ll go all out on the baking and shopping? I know the family wouldn’t mind that! Grin!
