deck the halls with boughs...

Ahhh, the wonderful smell of fresh pine.
The tree arrived today!

Tradition has it that I choose the tallest, fullest, widest tree that can
fit through the family room French doors to fill one corner of the room.
The one year I chose a smaller tree, every single family member and guest asked,
“What happened to the tree??”

Gathering the tools for outside decorating…
 Cut greens - check
Pinecones - check
Wire- check
Cutters - check
RED boots for festive look - oh absolutely!

My pine branch necklace for more festiveness from
favorite local mom/daughter designers Lexi and Gem.

And it’s snowing!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

It's a great day when the tree appears. Have fun decorating tonight!!! Love those red boots - did you borrow them from Santa?

There is nothing better than the scent of pine at holiday time. Your decorations look very festive. Love the simplicity of the wreath with the big red bow!
Best, Susan

So exciting you have your tree! I am going to get ours in the mountains next weekend and I want to use the same deep reds that you are!
Merry Christmas, Mary Ann

How lucky you are to be able to just go outside and get some Christmas greens. I'm going to have to ask my mom to bring me some from northern Arizona.
