Greenery Day

Saturday was my "Greenery Day" with the girls.    We go to Nancy's cottage and cut greenery for our holiday pots. .... well really we stop all along the way at shops ... and especially at "Butter Tarts and More" in Little Britain!     It's more about getting together with the girls, shopping, eating, drinking, talking and laughing.

This year we stopped at a store to get some pine.   We can cut cedar, spruce and dogwood at the cottage, but I love the look of soft pine.   In order to get a group shot, we had the cashier take our picture.   She had to shut down her cash ... Everyone in the store thought we were nuts!
The first thing we did on arrival at the cottage was set the table (with our coats on while the furnace kicked in).   It's all about the tablescape.  We all brought something for the table this year.

We went out in the bitter cold, cut our branches then returned to the cottage for hors d'ouvres, gift exchange and lunch.   It was hard to leave at the end of the day after all that fresh air and relaxing in front of a roaring fire.

And here is all my greenery:

Isn't he cute? ..... got him at the bazaar two weeks ago.


  1. Gorgeous!! I would love to have something like that on my front stoop.

  2. Very cute. The little snowman looks perfect there. I can almost smell the pine from here. Okay, I can at least smell the sap because I planted my pots last night and I can still smell the sap on my sweater hehe. I bought mine at the local grocery store though. Your lunch and day with the girls sounded like so much fun.

  3. What a cute evergreen arrangement - and it will last for the whole winter too! I love the Buttertarts and More store in Little Britain - we stop there on the way to the cottage as well sometimes.

  4. You were blessed with Lovely greens, lovely picture, lovely friends, and a LOVELY DAY!!! I mentioned your blog on my new one because you inspired me to clean up my workshop. Thank you and many blessings, Lady Jane

  5. So much fun to holiday-ify a space! Love the greenery in the pot with Mr. snowman. Too cute!

    Happy Holidays, Sharon :)
