Fun with fresh greenery

Today for the first time ever I purchased real greenery to decorate for Christmas. Why haven't I ever bought fresh before this?  What is wrong with me?  How did I not know how great it is, the smell, the look, the feel...mmmm.. love it! I combined what I purchased with some spruce clippings from my yard to create arrangements for my front porch urns and a little something to go behind my kitchen sink.  I've even added some to my mantel but you'll have to wait to see that.  I have had a lot of fun this weekend decorating for the Christmas holidays.  We have some hosting to do over the next few weeks so I wanted to make sure I get it all complete.  Here is a little sneek peek.

The wreath is also fresh and I'm loving it.  What I am not loving is the white dust all over my door mat from the drywallers going in and out. 

 Love this little burlap bag that I picked up today too, it was at a local garden supply store, I picked up a little tiny one too but don't have any plans for it yet.

I am so excited to see the tours of everyone's homes soon.



  1. The fresh greenery is wonderful! It looks great in the urns and in the burlap bag! I look forward to seeing your mantel. :)

  2. It is so pretty Kelly. I am so glad you are back to inspire me.

    Merry Christmas,
