In celebration of the letter "D" I offer "decoration"
and Jenny from Off on my tangent blog, allows all week to complete our "Letter D" assignment.
Decoration defined, is an addition that renders something more attractive or ornate, adornment.....
Oh yes, tis the season to pack away our autumn delights in exchange for all things bright and out of sight - since about this time last year..... farewell for now autumn decorations.
|Decorations don't always have to cost a bundle either. See these delightful musical figurines? They came from the "Dollar Store"....yes, really. Most everyone who sees them, begs to know where I found them....please don't tell, okay!|
I will be most pleased, if my children continue to create as many of their own decorations locked within their imaginations and share them with the rest of us.....
......and what could be more delightful than.....
|to hang something fresh from your own backyard, not too much just a whisper of something alive.....keep them guessing - are these decorations real or not.....that shall be the question of the hour.....|
A person always feels better when they create......
I especially like moving about my house late at night while every ones fast asleep, while visions of whimsy dance through their dreams...before they awake to see.....
|our tree decorated with so many pretty bulbs in the hopes that kitty cat paws and little fingers won't break too many again this year.....|
One of these days I'll have too many decorations. Some are from my childhood, many from my own children's hands, or that of friends and loved ones. Best are they that come from the heart of someone special...and once in awhile I'll buy just one more.
Soon there will be no more room for tree......oh no!
Funny how things happen, every year one or two disappear either by breakage, or tucked away in the hands of someone cherishing their Christmas past...and I'll see it again on another tree dear to us.
Everybody knows just how wise owls are, so why not include as many owls as you can when you decorate!
|On a snowy moonlit night I shall wish upon an owl......|
as he hides inside our tree
oh how I wish I might see an owl tonight.
When you're decorating with your very own delicious treats, why not serve them on something filled with festive spirit, like....
A Frosty Platter.......
|Even if you don't put anything on your Frosty Platter - he's still such a delight to see!|
Oh no! A bare Frosty!
|Decorating with angels, musical or not, is always a wise thing to do....|
To decorate something festive and of your own design, why not look inside your goody bag of bits and pieces and ribbons and bows and other artsy things. You can create within less than an hour if you wish to that quickly, your very own Whimsical jar for candy or those long candy canes you just don't know how to store.....
|I will be using this jar, but you could use a vase, or glass or any other object you can find!|
|....this is the end result for my decorated jar ... yours is what ever you wish it to be!|
You can give it away or keep it as one of your special decorations!
You know your child is all grown up when they tell you, "Mom, it's not so much about the presents, but more about the decorations and all the things we share....like climbing in the truck and going to cut our tree...."
Yes, Virginia, those decorations are special, aren't they?!
So if you haven't got the link to turn in your assignment here it is
