Or maybe I should call it the “You’ll Put Your Eye Out” wreath.
Because I’m afraid that’s what might happened if some tall person knocks on my door.
Especially if that tall person is absent minded. Or far sighted.
One run-in with my wreath and they’ll be no-sighted.
But I’m leaving the wreath up until the first person puts their eye out. Because I think it’s pretty. And natural. And woodsy.
I won’t be the one who puts my eye out. I’m not tall enough. Which is probably why I didn’t realize someone could put their eye out when I was hanging it.
The basic evergreen wreath was a gift and while it was pretty enough, I wanted to “blogger it up.” I mean, what kind of blogger would I be if I hung a simple, unembellished wreath on my front door?
So, I wired on a set of antlers — a gift from my mom’s neighbor — and finished it off with a simple bow made from jute webbing. (The best bargain ever at $3 a roll at Walmart.)
The wreath is just one of the projects I finished this weekend during a whirlwind Christmas decorating spree.
Here’s a peek at our decorated tree and my son with his haul of advent presents from his Nana. More holiday decorating shots to come later this week — I hope.
My plans to start decorating last weekend were thwarted by a nasty, nasty sinus infection, from which I’m still recovering.
So, instead of getting an early start on decorating as I’d planned, I’m racing down to the wire to get everything done before my extended family descends on our house next Saturday.
The living room is done, and it’s even been de-glittered. But the porch still needs some work. Ditto for the dining room and our family room.
All the decorating will get done. But it might not all get done before this weekend.
And I’m going to be OK with that. Because better late than never…
