Lighted garland at Christmas time

Love this little card from my friend Susan
Over the past couple of days I have switched out the items on the lighted evergreen garland above the picture window.  Now it is all snowflakes and icicles.  Some years I put those on at Christmas time and leave them up until February, when I add some red felt hearts.  But this year I couldn't find my box of snowflakes and icicles (I've located it now, however) so I added some different, random items for a Christmas look.  I showed these photos, or some of them, on my regular blog, but I know that not everyone reads both blogs.  So here we go.  I don't think I have taken any photos this year that show the entire garland; just bits and pieces.

This little sort of "basket" (at right) made from a Christmas card is from my friend Ann in New Zealand.  Gotta make some of those!
The little assemble-it-yourself chalet was from my friend LJ a few years back.
I won this adorable mitten in a giveaway by Linda Stubbs at Prairie Flower Farm a few years ago.
This ornament is new this Christmas from some of  my local grandkids; the snowflake is one I was able to find.
This delightful apron card is made by my friend Edna.  Notice the little oven mitt at the top!
This photo of a card from my friend DJ does not do it justice.  It's a beautiful card and I love how it utilizes very small scraps of Christmas fabric for the tree.
Hope you've enjoyed these glimpses of my evergreen garland!  All of these fun items made me smile whenever I looked at it this season.


  1. Beautiful and heartwarming photos! You have a lovely blog. Thank you so much for sharing, and warm greetings and blessings from Montreal, Canada. :)

    1. Thank you, Linda! Please come and visit at my Christmas Kitchen any time you can. Even though I don't post every day (except in July and December), I get here as often as I can and there are tons of things in the archives that might interest you.

      Blessings to you,

  2. That's so pretty!

    1. Thanks, Pamela! It always makes me smile to see it glowing and sparkling in the evening.

  3. Love it! Gives a warm, cozy feeling that evergreen Garland! I kept the fairie lights on the mantle after Christmas, it warms up the atmosphere

  4. I so agree, Lucie. I think you're in Quebec, right? Cold up there too. I need lights and sparkle. My lighted village is still up too.
