Library Night

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!

  1. Great job with your artistic eye! Have a wonderful wassail and cookie party.
    (p.s. I like the new header on the blog – the horses and riders in the snow).

  2. I hope you picked your box I sent, at the Post Office. I checked on the delivery of the pkg. and they said it was delivered to the PO in Ten Sleep on Saturday. I hope you can use some of the stuff.
    Your decorations at the Library are beautiful!

  3. The Library decorations look great! I wish we could join you, but, alas, there are too many miles between Ten Sleep and Ripley Tennessee. Enjoy the cookies and wassail.

  4. The entrance looks fantastic Carol. Did you manage to pin that bow so high up. (I remember the story of you on the roof with no one around!! I shared it with several friends. ) Have a wonderful evening on Monday.
