Deck the Halls ~ Hiveley Style ~ A peek inside my home
December 15, 2016
Decking the halls is a whole lot of work – but work that is well worth it.
For some reason, it took me an extra long time to accomplish the most basic decor this year. I usually have greenery dripping from the doorways and every flat surface is covered in pine needle-ly goodness. Unfortunately this year I still have yet to make it over to the greenhouse to grab my favorite evergreen touches – but now I’m debating even “wasting” the money. I feel like if I don’t already have it out then it’s too late in the game now. Am I right? ‘To go GREEN or not – that is the question. Thoughts, anyone? Am I too late?
Even though I’m missing loads of pine, I did score some fresh boxwood garland from one of my friends for a great deal. But instead of using it as garland I wound it up in different sized wreaths in hopes of preserving it a little better. My thought was, once it’s dried in a circular shape I should be able to either keep up year round, or use it again next holiday season. I’m praying it doesn’t fall apart once I move it though. Oh maybe I could dose it with that spray glue! Maybe that would work. In the mean time it at least adds a little green to my decor.My so-called white room has been taken over by this horse. Wrigley brings all of his innocent prey directly to this not-so-white-anymore rug to rip and devour behind our backs. It has become a graveyard for many’a flip flops and leather shoes. :'(
Currently he is behaving for the camera and chewing on a hoof. Good boy, Wrigs. Merry Christmas everyone! Thank you for taking a quick tour of my home.
