Sorry, I haven't posted in a few weeks. Has it really been that long? It's been a busy Christmas season, and with all that going on, I've also had a very sick husband. They don't really know exactly what's wrong with him, some virus most likely, but when your loved one is sick, you don't really feel like being merry (or posting). Pray he get's better. It would be appreciated. No fun being sick at Christmastime.
With that said, I did finally get some Christmas decorating done and even pictures taken. Yeah! And if I can, I'll get some more pictures taken and show you the rest of my house. Unfortunately (or furtunately) no Home Tour this year for me, so decorating was done more to minimum. I actually did do more than I thought I would, but anway, I'll post some pictures later of the whole house.
But on to my latest project! I found these wonderful cream buckets (or so they tell me) recently at a local favorite junking haunt (Linda's Cellar in Chaska). And as the saying goes, if you don't know what to do with something, put a candle in it! And so that's what I did...with a little extra embellishments.
I was fortunate not to find just one, but two! Lucky me!
The sides of the buckets are made out of a mesh type metal with a ga-zillion holes. Okay, so maybe that's a little exageration, but they're perfect for allowing candlelight to shine through.
This bucket actually has a skeleton shell, with the mesh just lining the bucket.
All it needs is a little embellishments...berries, ribbon and greens.
Ribbon was added around the bucket , but inside of the shell. I hot glued it to keep it in place.
And then attached the greens to the bucket with additional ribbon.
This is what you call a two-fer. Wa-la!
And out on the porch they go! And with the recent "ton" of snow (no exageration, we live in MN), they light up the snow!
There is no place like home, and with a little junk added...even better.
And with that, I wish you and everyone out there in blog land a very merry Christmas!
