Simple Like Me



We are keeping the holiday decorating simple this year. Just a little table tree that we both love and one or two nativity scenes scattered about. Today I spent a few minutes cutting out these cute angels from white card-stock, stapled them to some gold ribbon and tada! (Isn't my neighbors golden tree wonderful?) I've always loved crafty, rough homemade style of decorations. Not a lot of glitz other than the pretty gold balls on the tree.

I love this time of year beginning with Thanksgiving, which was an odd one for us this time around. I am not even going to tell you what we did because it is too embarrassing. Even more embarrassing than the year we ate our Thanksgiving meal at a Home Town Buffet. Yep. 

Merry Christmas Dear Ones!

  1. Last year I tried making garland out of popcorn and cranberries - to put on the Christmas tree. It was fun and relaxing - and very pretty! Our dog thought so too - and ate what popcorn and cranberries she could reach on the tree. I think I'll try that again this year. Our dog died so we can relax about the garland eater.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    1. I tried the popcorn one year, so much work! yes, I did consider that our dog would be too curious about a tree at her level. We have no little kids around and no plans for company so decided to let the big tree go for this year.

  2. Oh I wonder what your mystery celebration was. It is tempting not to have a big tree, but I would miss all the ornaments and their stories and the glorious display when the lights are turned on. Good for you for simplifying.

    1. Yeah I do love out old ornaments and the stories attached. I kinda sighed over them when I opened my decorations boxes, but its ok for one year to keep it simple.

    1. Nope, did not forget Thanksgiving, but we certainly did not plan it well at all!

  4. Wish you were closer, you could have had Thanksgiving#2 with us. We invited special people who had no family nearby, along with my sis and her hubby, whose kids were away, and all in all we had a wonderful time together. Most of the people there had never met each other before, so it was an interesting day. 1/2 of the group were octogenarians, which made it even more interesting. You would have been next to the youngest, just older than our two boys. Ha Ha! Anyway, it's something we have done many times over the years as we usually lived too far away from home to get home. Someday it would be fun to have a blogger's Thanksgiving Dinner. Something to write about for sure!
