This was a couple of nights ago before the 10 inches of snow we got. We're getting another 6 inches tonight. I went out tonight because I realized one of the lights had fallen out of the window. (Ooh...a game! Can you find it?) I got pictures of white dots, but no house. Between that and the beating these trees have taken on the front porch, I decided to just give up. No fabulous camera, no fabulous Christmas trees, and no fabulous picture. Hmph...When I came back in the house, I realized that I never showed pictures of my stairwell garland. I took whatever I had leftover from the fireplace garland and just plugged away!
I tied it up with some brown twine and covered that with huge, brown satin ribbon. Is there a better way to hang stairwell garland? Not sure. This seems to work for now.
