THE Garland

This is my attempt at the garland over at Nesting Place. I thought mine was pretty big but it almost looks wimpy in these photos. Pardon the blur....I'm still on pain medication and it looked fine to me.

I took two cheap ($2.98 then 60%off) Christmas garlands and added a small garland of English ivy, grape ivy and some other greenery. Then added some pine cones, ornaments of snowmen and reindeer's, a strand of rice lights and a little garland of wooden stars.

Whattayathunk? It may just have inspired me to finish decorating the house for Christmas!

I liked all the ornaments you put in your garland...what an easy and pretty idea to showcase them outside of the tree! :-)

I didn't even think of using ivy! The ornaments add so much color to the wreath... AND you're still on medication. Lady, you get the prize! I'm barely getting my CHristmas stuff together and have NO excuse after reading your blog. Hope you're feeling better each day! Knee surgery is no fun... it runs in our family and I'm trying to out run it! Way to get something done and recover!
