I took a ridiculous number of pictures at the Durant House yesterday, and take the liberty of posting a few more. From the Something for (almost) Nothing standpoint, there are lots of easy ideas for Christmas decorations here that we can borrow. Pine boughs, sprays of bittersweet, dried weeds with interesting seed pods, apples and oranges piled in old china, gingerbread men in bowls and perched on windows, garlands of cranberries, and garlands of popcorn all create a festive air. And when the holidays are over, these decorations can be given to the birds, or go in a compost heap.
Apples and gingerbread men–we can do this! And the mice will be happy, too.
