No TIME to wait......TIME to Decorate!!!!!

Ever wonder how to decorate in January? I sure do! When all the Christmas decorations go, sometimes I'm at a loss as to what to put up now?????

I guess you can't go wrong with clocks for January

 So I dug out my old clock and, believe it or not, actually took the one hand that was left off since it didn't work anyway. While browsing at Goodwill store I came across the little clock and only payed one dollar for it . I found it just in time!

 Some might look at my little white trees and say it's time to paint them. Well you have to know my love for all things white to understand my reasoning, I
 guess. They are another thrift store find from several years ago and yes, they are ceramic and were intended to be painted, but I left them white, of course. I think it's time for some (whisper) snow!!!
The branches in the urns are from our yard and I spray painted them white. They were left over from a banquet we had at church I am so glad I found them.

The green bows are made from a roll of green
 burlap. I have always wanted to learn how to make the beautiful big bows. It's about time I learned How to make some things like this. There is no excuse nowadays when you want do something and you don't know how. There are so many good tutorials out there. That's how I learned to do this. The reason for using green, besides it being one of my favorite colors, is because green is the color for 2013. Did you know that??? Well, it's really emerald green, but I'll just stick with other shades to represent the green hue for this year. Then you certainly can't go wrong with snowmen and pine cones at this time of year. So there you have it. Decorating in January just takes a little looking around here and there for ideas, and a little......time! As the days of January 2013 are quickly slipping by, here's a little reminder as to what we should really do with our time: Ephesians 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

  1. It's beautiful! And I remember that you like to decorate using the color of the year. In fact, I didn't even know there WAS a color of the year until you explained it to me. Now I will always think of you when I hear the color of the year mentioned. :-)
