Dressing Kindlewick Up for Christmas
A few years ago I found these darling stockings on sale after Christmas and picked up a bunch. Then they got lost in one of the last three moves and I did not see them again for some time. Well, a few months ago they resurfaced. I painted names on them and hung them up today!
Yours truly attempting to coerce a string of lights that was only half working to light up.
Success! Here's our lovely Scotch Pine that fills our living room with spicy tree-scent. I need a tree-skirt.
Hubby is in charge of outdoor lights this year. He chose blue and has the front pillars done so far.
Another frugal find: a wreath from Goodwill that set me back a whopping $0.99. I won't tell you how much we paid for the tree. I'm trying not to think about it. I'll just bask in my frugal wreath purchase instead.
The kids help get the lights out, ready to put on the tree which has a new skirt. Much more modest.
Putting the finishing touches on our beautiful tree!
