SHOW & TELL - Seasonal Decoration


More participants here

When I open the door to welcome you into my home, the first thing you see is the vitrine with my cat collection and just in front sits a basket which I bought last year just to decorate it for each season.



When I bought it it was summer and so I put a summer decoration. Rosie had just to be part of the picture too.



My autumn basket

Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the basket with the Christmas decoration or at least I can't find it. Just imagine some golden garlands, golden balls, a golden butterfly and an angel.



After Christmas, when I had enough of the golden stuff, the decoration will look like this until spring. I didn't put any fake snow on it, because we have enough outside (for once) and anyway I hate snow !

Please note that I have never done this before, but with the age all kind of strange ideas go through your head and now I found my happiness in decorating baskets for each season ! I wonder what is coming next !

baskets..
nice idea.
I did put up a fall wreath in October -- which I took down at Christmas time.
I planned on putting some evergreen swag up on the door. But never got around to it.

I wish I had the energy right now to do that. I hardly have the energy to clean the house.

This is a brilliant idea and a lovely piece of decor.

Gattina,

I like what you've done with the baskets, especially the one with the ivy. Very nice.

Blessings,
Mary

"Please note that I have never done this before ... "

But it´s so beautiful ...

:-)

So why not? ;-)

It´s nice to change the decoration in one´s own Home some times during the year so energy keeps moving in a gentle way ...

Love.

ps: I was thinking about asking to be your roommate for a while. But thinking about that twice ... Hmmm ... my disastrous (but charming) great dane would probably destroy with just a single movement of his tail and throw to the floor your vitrine with cat collection (and I can see for the picture that some of them are cristal and ceramic ... so you wouldn´t be very happy about that :-) (!))).

Oppps ...

Maybe neighbours then?

(I wonder how is Belgium for a girl from the south accustomed to warm weather!)
