A favorite seasonal project is collecting botanicals from our Farm Grove property to deck the halls with balls of holly…and fir, bay laurel, boxwood and birch.  I used my arrangements to add fresh Christmas in the down-stair’s powder room and guest room.  I also put two bunches in a red vintage wire basket filled with birch logs and pine cones to act as centerpiece in the third floor loft.  MERRIER CHRISTMAS!
