Wednesday, November 3
so it begins
it's november, and that means i'm still trying to contain christmas decorating, for scott's sake. :-)
however, it's getting harder, as the daily emails from various websites are starting to come laden with christmas ideas, like the one above. i kind of like the gift-wrapped boxes idea. i have plans to put my tall, skinny artificial tree - which was so perfect in my apartment - on the front porch, strung with lights and a few securely attached ornaments. wrapping some boxes like these might also be fun - they say to put a brick in the bottom so they don't blow away. i wonder if i could find pretty vinyl or something that would coordinate, because paper- or fabric-wrapped cardboard boxes would not last long, the way it tends to snow and then all melt here in wyoming.
by the way, all these photos and inspirations are from myhomeideas.com - one of the best email newsletters i get.
right now i have my christmas decorating planned for thanksgiving weekend. scott will be headed to thermopolis with bob to drop the heifer calves off at the feedlot for the winter, so i will have a chunk of time to work on things like this. i hope, before he leaves, that scott and i have a chance to go pick out a christmas tree together. i'm very much looking forward to having a real christmas tree again!
