Christmas in Connecticut Part II

People in Connecticut love Christmas.  They leave their decorations up till Spring Break it seems.  So when in Rome, err Wilton.

It starts with ze curb appeal.

xmasdecorTreated ourselves to some LED prelit trees, they are really glowy and pretty at night.  I’m excited about these as fully intend to keep using indoors well into the winter months.

2015xmas4As mentioned in the last post, I got a lot of pine roping.  I just love the smell of fresh greens and the drapey effect

Working on a few last decking items, including a fun way to display my husband’s  3 large acrylic cartoon displays from the original movie Rudolph.  Check back on that one!

Hoping your season is merry, bright and festive too!
