~~Winter greens and berries~~

How is everyone doing this beautiful fall Saturday...Its gorgeous out today...not a cloud in the sky...cool breeze and just the touch of whats yet to come in the air....

I've been busy doing makeovers...getting a head start on making Christmas cookies and  had done an old door over that I had gotten from my grandparents farmhouse..well not really a makeover, just gave it a good coat of black paint.... I stood it up in one of the corner's of the Family room behind my school desk...I hung one of my larger Long John baskets on it and couldn't decide what to put in it...After trying one thing then another I decided on putting some pine cuttings and winter berries in it...getting a head start on the Christmas  decorating...

So outside I went with my handy little clippers and cut me some pine from some of our many pine trees we have on our property..I also cut a few clipping of red berries from one of my bushes...




Thanks for stopping by for a visit...I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend...get outside and enjoy this beautiful weather...Indian summer is headed our way this coming week so its time to get some greens cut down for Christmas decorating that's just around the corner...

Prim hugs,
Trena

That looks really nice. I bought an old door at a garage sale a couple weeks ago for a buck. Now I know what I can do with it! Thanks for the inspiration!
BTW~ If I was remiss and forgot to properly thank you, I am very appreciative of all the goodies I received. I absolutely love the wool pumpkin pillow. Thank you very much, Trena. I feel bad for the gal that missed out but am happy you drew my name!

Your basket is beautiful. I have to ask, how do you keep your greens from drying out and falling all over the floor?
Blessings,
