I had plans to share several more Christmas projects, but I do believe I’ve run out of time. So, I thought I’d just show it to you as a little random Christmas decor, all-in-one post.
First up, the front entry. For the front door, I didn’t bother to take down the metal scroll thingy that I’ve decorated for spring and fall. This time, I just placed a wreath on top, decorated by simply twisting the greenery around purple poinsettias and silver and white floral picks. (Not using glue makes it easy to change on a whim.)
The Santa sign is from the Secret Santa exchange. The hymnal trees from last year survived storage- I placed one on an upturned bowl on the bistro table. I planned to do something with the urn, but didn’t get any farther than removing the dying fern and wrapping the rim with greenery. Ah, well, next year?
You saw a bit of the keeping room mantel and Christmas tree on my post about the tragic shooting in Newtown, CT
I kept this mantel simple since the Christmas tree moved in here this year.
The reindeer moved from the living room to the keeping room as well.
It was really hard for me to decorate for Christmas this year. I honestly didn’t even want to put up the tree. It all seems so trivial, and yet if I look at it in remembrance of the birth of a Savior, the focus becomes clear. Salvation is certainly something to celebrate, heaven something to look forward to with anticipation and joy. Believe. In Jesus. Yes, I can do that.
I pray your Christmas celebrations will be full of remembrance and joy.
