I’m puttering around and gathering greenery to deck the halls this week.
We had some much-needed rain last weekend, so I’m a little further behind than I’d like to be, but I was glad to see the rain!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the Potting Shed. I spent some time this week sprucing up the window boxes.
I cut back the spent annuals and gave the dirt in the boxes a thorough soaking. I added the greenery using the soil to anchor the stems to hold them in place and keep them fresh longer.
I did the same with a pair of pots to flank the bench.
Cedar, cypress, pine and magnolia fill the window boxes along with some giant pine cones I found at Hobby Lobby.
And I added some rusty bell garland to spill over and jingle its way through the greenery next to some tartan ribbon.
An embroidered pillow from Pottery Barn several years ago came out to roost on my bench. . .
My Frog Footman is serving up shatterproof red ornaments and pine cones, instead of tarts or birdseed. . .
And dressed in a tartan bow for Christmas.
I found miniature trees in the outdoor garden area at Walmart for $9. They have a little silver glitter for some holiday sparkle for the holiday season.
I removed them from the outer pots they came in and placed them in some long tom terra cotta pots.
Wellies are decorated with greenery, privet berries and a bird’s nest. . .
And the temperature is plunging this weekend, I need to fill up the bird feeders!
Hope you’ll be warm and cozy in your nest this weekend!
Are you still decking the halls or have you finished your Christmas decorating?
