Warm Winter Welcome. . .

 Hello my friends,
 
Can you believe that it is December?  Snuck right up on me.  :)
 
Although Christmas is a ways away, I am busy decking our home in holiday cheer.
 
Today I am sharing a simple winter welcome.
 
 
 
 

 
Again, a big "T HANKS" to cute Amber from
Follow the Yellow Brick Road for hosting this fun hop!!
 

 
If you are hopping over from  Celebrate and Decorate welcome!  Chloe is so talented, I know that she would create something beautiful for you to see!  So happy to have you visit!!
 
A couple years ago I bought a brown wicker hanging basket at a damaged goods store.  I loved it, but wanted it to be a bit brighter.  I gave it a rustic coat of white chalk paint.  I didn't want it solid, so I let some of the brown shine through.
 
For spring I filled it with lots of pastel colored flowers.  I loved it, but it was time for a change.
 
 
 
 



 
I had everything on hand and didn't have to dish out any money for this project.  That's the best!!
It's a warm winter welcome and works for Christmas as well.
 
Hope you enjoyed my basket full of posies!!

 
Next up is cute Cindy from Cloches and Lavender  You won't want to miss visiting her!
 
Now hop on over and visit all of the talented ladies in this hop.
 
 

 hugs,
