Here in the north-eastern United States (CellularWindowShades is located in Vermont), the landscape is looking more like this

So, when I came across this “pin” this week, a deep sigh escaped my lips: Such a luscious green garden is too many months away!

beautiful photo, by Andrew Renn (via houzz)… The dappled sunshine lays lightly over the foliage; the bright-white “gothic arch” door, with that fabulous lattice-opening that beckons you to stroll through to the opposite side; the chill touch of the black, iron ring latch. Even the scents of the hedge and flowers tickle my nostrils, as I type.

But, remember, north-east: Snow, Cold, Damp, Biting, Sunless, Grey are our watch-words at present.

PRESENT, how that word calls to mind this “Season of Giving”!

A friend in England LOVES gathering clippings of holly and diverse evergreens, mistletoe and pine cones, in order to decorate the interior of her home. She brings a bit of the outside indoors each December! And that is the one thing _I_ can think of to brighten the day as the shortest day of the year approaches. Here’s a sampling, from Pinterest:

xmas mantel

Blushing roses bring a nostalgic whimsy to this fireplace decoration of leaves, vines, ivy, sprays, and candles.

xmas evergreens planter

Various greens, intermixed with shiny Christmas bulbs, make a “welcoming” entry.

xmas holly

Submerged berries provide color and interest in these clear bowls, which then float a lighted tea-light.

xmas cookies

When all else fails, bake and eat your ivy, cones, and evergreens!

xmas yule log

A decorative “Yule Log” dresses up even those spaces without a fireplace.

I’m new to Pinterest –> am trying to build up some boards and populate them with pins.

Would love to hook up with others – especially those whose interest is in similar areas: travel, books, decor, (easy) cooking (for that last read: desserts!)
