December 27

What a beautiful Sunday we have been given here is southwest Missouri to round out this year of our Lord 2020. We spent the morning at church where we are meeting in person, though masked up and socially distanced, so as to keep everyone as safe and healthy as can be. We sand beautiful Christmas hymns, which never get old no matter how many times I hear them in a season. They just get richer with meaning the closer we get to Christmas.

Y’all know I love our tree and nothing makes me happier right now than to be on our back porch enjoying the lights of our tree. No matter what goes on during a given day, I can come home, sit right here and look at our tree, and things are just set to right again. So, naturally I decided several weeks ago I didn’t want to take our tree down right after Christmas, but I didn’t want to leave it all decked out for Christmas either. I decided to welcome winter with a white and silver theme. After lunch today, I ran to Wal-Mart to check out what may be left of the Christmas Clearance and scored these glittery icy looking picks for 48 cents a piece!

I only got 7 of them because I have never used picks on our tree and I wasn’t sure how I would like them or how many I would need….. well….. I LOVE THEM! …. and I NEED MORE! So I plan to try to score some more tomorrow. I would love to have our tree have some many it lends to the idea of being outside in a newly fallen snow…. without me having to actually flock our tree myself, lol! Kudos to the many decorating videos I watched this season of different tree decorating ideas!

These pics are just the start of my winter tree, but I was having so much fun changing it out, I decided to share even though it’s not all done yet. It’s good to show the in between as well.

I feel like I would love to add some sheer white and silver ribbon loops as well…. and maybe more white lights. Let me know what you think?

If I would name my tree, I would call it peace. For that is what it evokes in me when I look at it.

How do you decorate your home for winter?

Until next time, Terri ❄️
