When I was home yesterday to see my grandmother, I went toward the woods to look for greenery so I could fix up our advent wreath. We are not getting a Christmas tree this year, so it's our big Christmas decoration.
Yes, that is a ball of tinfoil. It worked fine, but was not so pretty.
Back at the parents' house in Cloverly, I set out toward the woods with clippers. But I didn't even make it to the pine trees there, because my neighbor's compost pile had some big pine branches lying right on top! I clipped and clipped.
There was plenty for the Advent wreath.
Then I made a pine garland.
Today Joe and I put it up and added some greenery to the door.
And here are some silly shots Joe took.
Added later: Maybe next year I will try adding cranberries! But how would one pose with cranberries?
