If you are a regular reader of my blog then you already know I am living with my dad after his stroke. He hasn’t decorated for Christmas for years, normally spending the holiday with family. This year I wanted to decorate his home and make it cheerful without breaking the bank. Our attic in Richmond is full of Christmas bins but I didn’t want to push my luck by asking Steve to bring some things here on the plane.
The mantle was decorated on a budget by buying the green garland and ribbon from Michael’s on Black Friday when it was 70% off. I was able to buy a huge box of the silver garland at a garage sale for $1.00. The Steuben vase and candle belongs to dad. It is simple and thrifty but still says Christmas Cheer.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you at the Open House party
starting Wednesday evening.
