Winter Greens and Pinecones

 

Christmas is past,  and a lot of winter is ahead.

Thanks to my backyard, I have winter decorations galore………

don’t even have to shop for after Christmas sales to fill the emptiness left by packing away the season’s

festive decorations.

 

Before I share those pictures, a small project. A wooden and metal lantern, that had been used outdoors

was in need of a little TLC, if I was going to showcase it indoors, which was my plan.

Chalk paint and dark wax transformed the rusty lantern to a beautiful centerpiece

for a winter table scape.
