Yes, more greenery.

So the Stink Eye Sister strikes again. She walked by me tonight as I wrapped lights around some greenery and gave me the Eye:

"More greenery?" (Stink eye.)

Whatever Sister.

Yes, more greenery. Shut it.

I wanted to show you the various places I put the stuff... It really is such an inexpensive way to make your home pretty and just plain loverly this time of year.

**Edited to add -- the Nesting Place blog is having a party about just this! Other people love it like me! Go take a look! (It's gonna take me hours to get through all of them.)

You've seen the mantel:




The dining room:



But here's some more. I put it on furniture:


On top of cabinets:


Hanging from various places:


Throw some in a window sill:



Behind furniture:



Stairs: (When I complain I don't have pretty railings to wrap my greenery around, Hubby reminds me that he wanted the railings, not walls. Yeah yeah. Whateva.)



Around doors:

And more...I'll show you our bedroom soon. I have a little project I want to finish in there first. I think that's it otherwise...I think. Try it in your home. Wrap some lights around it or throw some ornaments in, and just stick it places. It works. Swear.

  13. Just gorgeous! If you didn't say, "Shut it" out loud, you should've. Stink eye sounds like one jealous sis. Heck, I'm jealous of your talent and beautiful decor - but in a good way! ;P

  17. It looks great!

    Isn't the Nester's party just too much garland goodness to fit into just one day? It's going to take me forever, too.

    I want to make a garland so badly...all I have is a string of beads - lame.

  19. I hope you label them all so that you know where their proper home is for next year. Love it!

    And what's with "I'll show you our bedroom soon. I have a little project I want to finish in there first"...do you think your husband enjoys you calling him a project?? {wink wink} Now when you post it I'll be scared to look ;)

  22. I'd give a lot right now for you to be my neighbor. I'm so frustrated w/ my garland that I think I'm going to box it up & return in to Target - it looks like crap! But yours, on the other hand, as Tony the Tiger says...LOOKS GREAT!!!!

  31. Soooooooo pretty and festive. You've given me some great ideas on where to stash the green stuff. And P.S. You totally crack me up. You're hilarious! :o)

  32. Okay you seriously are so creative. I am loving in the windows and over the pony wall upstairs!

  33. WOW! WOW! WOW! Your decorations are AMAZING! I want to come to your house! SO BEAUTIFUL!

    You can never have too much greenery!

  34. I LOVE it!!! I just love garland, but it doesn't always love me. Do you have battery operated lights or did you just do a great job of hiding the cords for the stairs and around the door. They never put outlets near where I want to decorate and I hate having an ugly extension cord hanging out from my beautiful garland. Just curious.

  35. I love your taste! Wow. I mean, WOW!! How do you do it?! You dining cabinet looks phenomenal. Also, I'm still head-over-heals for your mantel garland. I have gotta make me one.

  36. i love the greenery, I was just telling my friend that I was going to pick up lighted garland for next year if I find some on sale.Now that I have my mantle just the way I want it, and my tree just so, I now know exactly what I need in the house and that is lighted garland. I need some for the top of the mirror on the fireplace, some going up the stairs, around the front door and on the piano! I like the idea or putting it up in the kitchen too. LOL Love your ideas you home is so warm and beautiful

  37. You weren't kidding when you said yyou like garland! It looks GORG!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Would it be possible for you to adopt me? I don't take up much space. Seriously.

    If you can't do that, can I come and intern at your house? I need some one on one tutoring because I could really just sit here all day and stare at your page. Your ideas are wonderful. Really really wonderful.

  39. Just as there is never too much sparkle, there is never too much greenery!

    It all looks gorgous!
