My fireplace-- a mirror along the glass doors prevents a draft plus reflects more candlelight!

I have found the challenge of decorating for the holidays for as little money as possible to be quite rewarding. I spent $2.79 on a roll of twine but other than that, I am reusing and or repurposing what I already own. Enjoy my silvery winter wonderland!

  1. Well done Miss Cara! Hoping the Buddha adds an air of serenity and appreciation to the mix. I really enjoyed the grumpy season post. I’ve been feeling the same (out of sorts) and trying (with mixed success) to get in the spirit.

    My holiday decorating involved putting my Target-bought wreath on the door, plugging in the wee lit tree I found on super holiday clearance at a hardware store last year, and putting new pillar candles (also bought on sale) on the silvery candle stands from my sister. Five minutes et voila!
