Our first greeting comes from the home of the nice Grandma and her gigantic house with massive windows facing all of Dixie. Each room has a festive Christmas scene with her en.nor.mous collection of dolls. If you blink fast while driving by, they actually come alive!
Next, is a Dixie sunrise from the back of my hobbit home through our Walmart Christmas tree....sadly, the only contribution to my holiday decor this year. I could have saved myself $40 though. All you need do is wake up at the crack of dawn and sit in the orange chair for a view of the best light of the day.
And then to the pantry. Someone, somewhere in the world wide web, posted a picture of hanging Christmas cards on their kitchen cabinets. I thought it was a good idea for the hobbit house since it's a rental.
The hobbit house? That's what we call our Dixie rental. It's short and squat, and has garage doors so little, that we can't park the truck inside. The house sits kind of down low so it's the last to see the sunrise and the first to go dark at night.
This picture is not our hobbit house, but it's the general idea!
Anyway...back inside the house...to the Christmas card hangings....I went ahead and taped some old ribbon to the backside of the pantry door....which is a lovely pickled pink wood (of which the entire house is coated in), and then I started hanging the cards we receive with clothes pins to the ribbon. Duct tape, packing tape...whatever, it all works.
Hopefully, I will run out of room...and then I can tape another ribbon to the door.
I am a big fan of greeting cards. I spend quite a bit of time preparing and sending my own cards every year and then I look forward to and relish the cards we receive. Handmade cards get saved forever. No lie. I have a box in storage of them.
So...greetings from the Pickled Pink Pantry to you from the hobbit house. Gotta go see what greetings lay waiting for me in my hobbit mail box.
