Between stripping paint and refinishing a piece of furniture, cleaning the house a bit, tagging pieces for Lucketts and working on some freelance stuff, I did a little bit more Christmas decorating. When we were in Raleigh, I trimmed a bunch of branches from my in-law’s magnolia tree to use in my holiday decorating and photo shoots this year, so I felt inspired to work with some of them. I plucked a few waxy leaves and made a mini garland to turn into a necklace for my antique dress form.
A charcoal velvet ribbon tied on the back adds a bit of contrast against the leaves.
I love how it’s simple, classic and a little whimsical all at one time.
I also played around with some zinc banners and black chalk I’m going to sell in my space at Lucketts…
I’m selling each one individually, so customers can buy the number they need for their message. I think these are so cool!
…and I’m diggin’ the black chalk.
If I keep decorating for Christmas at this pace, Ill probably finish sometime in April.
