Monday night is our Open House/Silent Auction at the library. I’ve been decorating… trying to make that silk purse out of old Christmas decorations/sow’s ear. We have no budget for making things pretty… and so I tear into all of our boxes, remixing and modifying… and I chose our colors as green, white, and gold.
Greenery, snowflakes, ornaments… and so I put these together.
The emphasis is our little work area… and I had three pretty good strands of greenery to use, but nothing matched. I hemmed and hawed, and decided to hang the strands vertically. I used the ornaments to pull them “together” colorwise… and draped strands of snowflakes between to further set off the front desk area.
Then, I ran out of time. But I had the entryway to do… and nothing I wanted to do it with.
The next day was a run to the dentist office in Worland, delivering our Festival of Trees wreath along the way… and I zipped into the store to see what I could find on the cheap. Well, in total it may not have been really cheap, but they were 60% off! So…
I *like* my entryway now!
Maybe it’s not like I’d love it to be… but there are limits… and I still think we will put on a good showing! Please join us for wassail and cookies and bidding on some great donations Monday evening at 6 pm!
