A Bit of Lime Makes Christmas Shine!

Do you remember a few years ago when red and lime green were the new hot Christmas colors?

Well, you know me; I had to give it a whirl.

I still think they’re pretty cute so I group them together in my blue cabinet in the entry.

I don’t have a lot, so every year I put them here.  Although I mix it up just a bit.  I always change the top d├ęcor.

This year I used my large birdhouses and small red churches. I also grouped a couple of tree stitcheries.

red & white and lime ornaments hang from the faux garland.

I love this jolly Santa and my cute little sitting elves.

There was even a line of fabric sporting the color combo.

Yes, I made a quilt.

The woman who quilted it for me did cute snowflakes and ornaments.

Even though these colors are definitely not traditional, they’re kind of fun.

One thing is for sure.  They’ll be hanging around my house for a while.

Hope they make you smile!

I like the combo! It's vibrant. Reminds me of a Dr. Seuss Whoville somehow. In a really good way! I love that blue cabinet!
