Oh I just love real garland! The house I grew up in had a gigantic (overgrown, really) hedge of juniper, and Mom and I used cut branches and put it all over the house at Christmas. It smelled so good. Fake garland just doesn't do it for me anymore, which is why my mouth fell open when I saw what Eddie Ross has been up to in a stately Colonial house in Connecticut.
I know I promised to show you our little garland project today, but the weather's not cooperating with my camera, and it could use a little tweaking anyway. Promise it's coming soon! Enjoy Eddie's work in the meantime.
