In honor of Daylight Savings and this particularly dark Monday morning (hello-I was wide awake at 7am), let's talk Fall/Christmas decor. Those who know me understand that this is one and the same thing. Because everything leading up to the cold winter is all about red and green. Not brown and orange, or black and orange if Halloween is your thing. Just the red and green. Which is why when I spotted this lovely fall design-

-I immediately translated it into what I would do for Christmas. Totally going pinecone collecting in the park, getting some gold glitter at the store and buying another cloche (definitely need a base for this). It's going to be all gold glitter pinecones, small red matte ornaments, like this-
-and some cuts of this-
-all mixed together and flipped upside down in the cloche. Possibly going to add some of these, you know, for the full effect-
I'll post photos when the crafting is finished. Might be about a month in the making because even I don't start the decor until The Day After Thankgiving (aka Tree Shopping Day). But I think it is going to be fabulous and I can't wait!
I have no idea how I got this far off the intended path for the day (I was thinking about blogging something entirely different) but I'm going with it. Now the sun is coming out, it's probably going to be 80 degrees again today, and I'm all in a festive Christmas snowy mood. Oh well. Happy Halloween y'all!
