This year for the first time we are having a few tours
from Japan in November and December so I wanted to
make it a little more special for them since the garden
So, I did some Christmas decorating starting with the
a peek into an Island Christmas.
However,I am not finished yet so
just a peek today.
I bought these old skates at a thrift shop
for $4 and gave them a coat of paint and a
a coat of dark wax. I glued on some fake
fur when they were dry. For now they are
hanging on the door of the boathouse but
they will probably go into a wreath for the
member of the family. She is a miniature
schneuzer and belongs to my daughter and
and skates were also thrift finds.
paint and have an old pair of wool
socks in them but you could also
use the cuffs of an old sweater.
I just took a few quick shots for now
but when it is all done I will share more.
I love decorating for Christmas ~ love the
coziness of twinkling lights and greenery
etc. so I love to start early and then relax
and enjoy it.
Enjoy your day!
