Two Plus Two Equals Two

My Christmas decorations this year are minimal, quite nothing really! I did, however, place these feather trees (bought a couple of years ago) on the mantel. 

The vases below have been sitting on the hearth (just below the trees) for some time now. They got  left behind on purpose as we have been gradually moving our things to Texas because I am not very fond of them and wasn't sure I would keep them. 

I had an idea this morning while sitting on the couch, facing the fireplace, drinking my coffee and I will just tell you it took a lot of brain power to come up with this one! 

TWO feather cones PLUS TWO blue and white vases EQUALS TWO Christmas trees!!

And this all happened before 8:00 AM. Just imagine what else I can come up with today! 

PS. Happy Happy Birthday to my daughter!!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

I refuse to NOT put up a tree! But this, however, will be the extent of it...this year, anyway! My time here in Mississippi will be limited during and after the holidays so I don't want to spend it all on taking down decorations.  And since they are all going back to Texas with me it will be much easier to not have to rebox everything!  

No other trees, no outside lights, no wreaths, no garland...

What you see is pretty much what you get!
