How is the holiday decorating coming? Do you have a tree up yet? If you don’t are you going to put one up? Do you put any decorations on your door? My husband and I have partially decorated the patio. I love my net lights because all I have to do is drape them over the bushes and wha-la, instant lighting. One thing I wanted to do was give the illusion of a couple of trees on top of a snow capped mountain. I was able to do that by turning a tablecloth inside out and draping it in front of a book shelf and then wrapping single colored garland around a couple of tomato wire trellis’s to give them the appearance of looking like trees. They are on top of the white tablecloth covered bookshelf. The front door cover is on my back patio door and I am going to put a different door cover on our front door. We don’t have a tree yet but it is on the to do list as soon as we make some room in the apartment.
