An Outside Weathered Globe and I’m a Winner!

  I can’t believe it’s been a little over a week since my last post or even paid a visit to other blogs and for that I’m sorry!   I really have no excuse other than I’ve been busy helping my brother plan/organize for our family’s Thanksgiving dinner of 35 guests, taking down and putting away all the fall stuff and decorating our home for Christmas. 

Today I wanted to show you what I did with a weathered outside globe and how I’m using it inside for Christmas.


What do you think?  I really like how it turned out.  I placed it inside an old urn added a twig wreath and some pine greens.  How simple is that! 


Would you believe that this was once a silver globe.  I love how it has weathered through the years. 


I have a little something else to share with you all….I’m a Winner!   On Monday, I received an email from Terry at Forever Decorating notifying me that I was the lucky winner of her one year blog anniversary giveaway gift.  Take a look at all the goodies I won!!!!   

Congratulations to you Terry and thanks for such a lovely gift.  I can’t wait to try out the coffees!

I still have a few more things left to do inside and then I’ll be moving to the outside to decorate for Christmas. 

As always, thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend.
