Christmas Mantel Decorations, Christmas Mantle Decorating Ideas ...
If you’re a bit tired of your usual Christmas items, don’t forget the wonder of spray paint. I have had a blast updating and changing out my color themes, just by changing up dated items with a fresh coat of spray paint.
Can’t wait to show you some more Christmas Decor. I just need to finish getting up in the attic now.

You know, I REALLY hesitate to say this, but on Friday, we went on our annual Christmas tree “killing” expedition (a tree farm where we cut down- kill- our own tree). But it was closed, so we ended up at Home Depot. Well! There, they are oh-so-helpful about cutting off the bottom branches of the tree, and they just stack them up in a basket. While we were tying the tree onto the car, a nice lady pulled up in her Cadillac & was so very helpful to them, taking a cart-ful of those branches off of their hands, so they didn’t have to dispose of them. We couldn’t let her get all the joy of helping others , so we took the other basket FULL of fir branches off of their hands. Free. Gratis. De nada! And they look MAGNIFICENT on my mantel!
Senior Moments – for week of April 29
SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – When I was in Kindergarten we celebrated the arrival of spring by dancing around a Maypole to the melody of “In a Country Garden” written by Percy Grainger. Each of us held onto a brightly colored ribbon and skipped around the pole in time to the music, weaving in and out which was a lot of fun, though I never understood why we did it in the classroom instead of out of doors where it belonged. After all, why pretend to be reveling in nature when you can experience its delights first hand? That’s formalized education for you, teaching by inference rather than by experience.
I haven’t danced around a Maypole since those simple days of my childhood and in fact don’t even know who thought up the idea in the first place, other than perhaps the unsophisticated Druids who must not have had anything better to do with their time. Since I’m a homeowner, as soon as winter departs and warmer weather arrives, who has the time for dancing with chores like outside cleanup, fence mending, house painting, window washing, deck staining, shrub trimming, tree pruning, lawn fertilizing, weeding, seeding, planting, and mowing just waiting to be done? Perhaps the Druids weren’t so naïve after all.
