Three Minute Christmas Decor!
Things have been hectic at the Ellison household. Our house is on the market and we have been busy with showings. In the middle of showings, I have been busy with portrait commissions plus all the other happenings called "Life".
I spent about three minutes on our Christmas "decorations" this year. It's not that we are not in a mood of merriment, this Christmas season is a different one in our lives. This year we are focusing on the more simpler aspects of Christmas such as contemplation, Bible reading, food, music and thoughts of family even though they are almost 800 miles away. We also plan on watching some movies.
Back to my three minute Christmas decor: On the mantle I drapped a faux evergreen garland and added a strand of large red beads I bought the other day at the Goodwill for 50c. Grabbed the three yard sale candles from the den and placed them on the mantle and it was completed. Well, maybe even less than three minutes was spent on it.
