Every year, I make a swag to hang on the post next to the mailbox out by the road. I’d like to think it cheers those driving by as well as the mail carrier.
Made with branches of Fraser fir (Abies fraseri) and Eastern white pine (Pinus strobus), mountain laurel (Kalmia latifolia), pine cones and winterberries (Ilex verticillata) add interest. It is finished with a large, red gingham-checked ribbon.
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday week and may your gatherings be very merry!
