Winter Greetings Basket

It was a wintery weekend here in Carrington, North Dakota! Last week I started decorating my house and admit it has taken me SEVEN days. SEVEN days?! I am a winter/Christmas decorating maniac. This cute little basket I received from junk sis Cassie a couple of years ago. It is adorable, but I decided to change it up a bit and add a little junk to it this year. I started with this buckle-looking item in my stash of small junk goods.
I did consider spraying the buckle white, but hated to wreck it if it didn't turn out just right! I love this white ribbon I bought years ago...still had some left on the roll.


In addition to the junky buckle, I decided to add a couple other old pieces I've acquired, like this old metal cash register number.



Here's the finished product! My alternative to a wreath, all wintery looking and hanging pretty by my back entry door.Welcome Winter!
