Welcome To The 151st Masterpiece Monday!

Christmas in my entryway.......





My Hubby made this swordfish years ago and last Summer I made it into a chalkboard to hang in our entryway. 



The vintage glass beads are from my childhood Christmas decorations.



I put it there because it's on the way out the door and I wanted to write reminders and etcetera on it. Which I will, after the holidays are over. For now I'm having some fun with it.



Just past the chalkboard and a little bit around a corner is my entryway/kitchen Christmas tree.




I had a roll of drywall tape, and for the life of me, I can't remember why I even have it, and used it for some tree ribbon.   

All I did, was take a sharpie and free handed my saying and used a jingle bell stamp in between sentences.

I wrote "Our Savior is Born" and trimmed one edge with wavy scissors.

I also added my dried hydrangeas and set the tree in a metal bucket.



Very easy and simple.



Next week, I'll show you my white china cupboard.....

Hi Mary, what a great idea for wire top jars - hang them by their wire with candles! Loved seeing your decorations. I started decorating early this year, it just seemed reasonable for some reason. Thanks for hosting. Have a great weekend.

Mary, I love your chalkboard! Such a clever idea, and the vintage beads are very festive.
Also love the idea of the using the roll of floating tape for ribbon. That is great! I think I'll go buy a roll to have on hand. Thanks for hosting and Happy Thanksgiving.
