I am definitely in the Christmas spirit since after Thanksgiving! I wanted to take the Christmas tree down from the Attic but hubby said I had to clean the living room first :( Which is true, I had been doing laundry all week and the girls were eating dinner and watch Netflix (even the 3 year old can navigate it), so sweeping was never ending. BUT NOW.... it is clean, just a few socks to pair up.
Anywho... so I had questions about why I hadn't been sharing any green tips, and I did share two while doing a TAG on my YouTube Channel, but I'm going to be sharing some "Oldies But Goodies" posts from previous years as well as sharing a new one each week! So TWO for the price of ONE.

Celebration ... a joyous diversion!
Seasonal decorating is big business. Turn on the television and you're bound to see advertisements for holiday adornments. Walk into any store and you'll be greeted with decorations of all sorts. The trouble is, most of those things aren't very earth friendly. The unfortunate truth is that celebrations, of any kind, typically generate a lot of waste.
So, in preparation for the the upcoming holidays, here are a few ideas for decorating ... in an Eco-friendly way:
- Use cornstalks, pumpkins and bales of hay to create a fall scene.
- Make a scarecrow (use burlap, straw, old hats and clothes) and let him greet visitors to your home.
- Collect colorful fall leaves to decorate a table or fill a vase.
- Display gourds of all sizes, shapes and colors.
- Use baskets ... fill them or simply display them at odd angles.
- Make a cornucopia. READ MORE
