I want to keep a log on my blog as to what I do so next year I will remember what worked and what didn’t and not have to rely on my memory.
Also it will help me get my a** off the couch as I have become somewhat of a couch potatoe these days.
For the first year in a very long time I am almost fully booked up pretty much every weekend till Christmas so I thought well I am doing enough I really should be blogging about it. Above is one of the lanterns I have on the side of my house outside my triple french doors….I have them filled with blue stones and seashells for summer…
Last nite on the way home from Toronto I stopped at Ikea and picked up a few of these beautys..19.99 I mean seriously how much cheaper do you want them? (yes I know I am not allowed to buy any more lanterns due to my addiction but come on.)
Anyhow I knew they would be perfect for switching out with the old black ones for the winter.
And here you go..now I realize its only a small change but its a start on my Christmas decorating. I did buy to big red candles for them but I put my solar lights in them instead that way they are lit every nite and not just when I can be bothered to go light them…Anyway candles do not fare too well on this side of the house.
The ones I used in the summer literally melted all over my wood deck and have made a right mess.
Anyway that’s about it for today, it is so beautiful out I am trying to get some things done before dark with my extra hour..
There are 48 days left till Christmas and I want to be prepared this is a good first if small step
Till next time, Frances
