    Happy Christmas Eve on the Homestead

    If you know me… You know for sure I love to decorate for Christmas. This year I got a late start, BUT… Here is how it all turned out! From the foyer, top left, and to the kitchen table. The old wood, evergreens of all types, to the cardinals. It just helps to bring the outside in. Our Christmas tree in the family room, fireplace, the stocking are hung, but not in the picture, sorry. All doorways are adorn with evergreens. Remember, I try to decorate more for the season, so the snowmen will stay with us thru January and into February. Yes, I decorate the bathroom too!

However, you could put a layer of Pretty Peacock that is embossed and add some frost shimmer paint on the raised…
