My next posts will be about sprucing up your home for the holidays without resorting to a craft store like Michael's or Joann. As you know, I love decorations to be fresh, free, or both! This year I'll be economizing more than ever. Between the move and the baby, my personal stash of Christmas goodies is at an all time low. I only have one roll of ribbon left! While most of my decorating tends to be one-time yard sale finds, I'll try my best to share ideas that all of us can do. And I hope you'll chime in as we go along. I always say the comments are my favorite part of Like Merchant Ships!
I'll be able to upload photos from my husband's computer, so I'll be back later to kick off our Christmas celebration. In the meantime, send the kids outside with shopping bags and tell them to gather all the pinecones, acorns, and lichen-encrusted bits of bark they can find!
