A Chippy White Christmas

Happy Holidays Friends!




When this time of year rolls around I always look forward to decorating with all my chippy white favorites. As if they didn't look great all year long~ something happens at Christmas time that makes them just shine! I figured out what it is .........




PINE!




I know....AMAZING right???




I knew I had to share this revolutionary new decorating tip with the masses!!! LOL!




Seriously though....




simple Frasier sprigs tucked here and there are JUST the right touch




and let me add again........




SIMPLE.




And let me also add.....




in most cases...




Free!




And quick to do. You get beautiful results in seconds.




I did alot of tucking recently.....





Many of these pieces are ones that I have recently discovered.....



and are currently available.....




on my Etsy shop!







You may have some pieces like this sitting in the attic or garage.....






That are just waiting patiently to be jazzed up a bit with a simple sweet pine sprig!







You can go from a typical snooze fest pillow arrangement....




to adorable with just one sprig!







Fill an ole wash tub with a bunch.....






and stand back and realize that you did that in minutes!













Nothing is off limits when it comes to sprigs......




except perhaps anything that you don't want sap on....




which could be a good number of things but for the sake of decorating we sometimes improvise.....









with Fake sprigs like in this vintage mail bag!







With all that goes on this time of year~ decorating your home should be one of the fun and enjoyable things!




Don't stress ~ just think simple.







A tuck here and tuck there.....




is all it takes to bring a little bit of Christmas cheer to even the most humble pieces that you treasure!

A little greenery always makes things look better! I call it fluff stuff!

Did you get my e-mail about the show in Nashville in Feb. They have a special section just for bloggers and I think you would fit in well! Please get back to me on this!

Thanks

trash talk said...

I'm giggling to myself 'cause we generally buy a tree just for cutting up purposes. How throwed off am I?
What we do without sprigs and dried hydrangeas...what?

P.S. My crap in the barns looks nothing like your crap...I mean quality merchandise!

Hi Beth, So happy to meet you. I haven't "spruced" up the inside of our home yet with fresh greens, as I am waiting til closer to Christmas for when our company comes. Want it to be fresh. I did go looking for some pine roping today and was amazed that places like Lowe's and Home Depot had hardly anything left to sell. Love all your sweet touches with sprigs.....great inspiration. :) HWW

Beth, I know what you mean, my neighbor has a holly bush that she let me take some clippings from, I decorated my front door wreath with them and filled a old watering can on my porch! They look great, very festive, and the best part they were FREE! I love nature! Happy holidays. Susan
