Christmas Fresh

Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality is having a party too. She has gorgeous fresh decorations adorning her lovely home this year.
So, instead of cleaning this morning I thought it would be a safe time to go out in the yard and clip a few fresh boughs to bring in and join her party.

Here's a view from the stairs that was supposed to be at the top.


Some fresh holly branches from the bushes out front and arranged casually in this ice skates planter that I picked up early this morning a the new Christmas Tree store down the street that just opened last Friday. Very cute things for very little $.



The fresh arrangement that I picked up at Costco to take up north with me to decorate the peppermint table that I'm doing for my ladies dinner on Wednesday night.




Holly over the sink.
Merry Christmas y'all.
