When we have less and less daylight, it’s no wonder we all want to add twinkly lights and sparkly things to our inner and outer environments to brighten things up a bit this time of eyar. Our cultural and personal traditions encourage lighting candles, trimming trees with shiny ornaments, and hanging strings of lights on anything that doesn’t move.
Some of us have cherished decorations and dinnerware, handed down through the generations, that we pull out just for the holidays. But what if you simply aren’t using those cut glass candy dishes from Aunt Peg? Or your mother gave her mother’s mother’s crystal candlesticks to your older sister? Never fear, your resourceful DIY fairy is here!
Incorporating pieces you have in your home, or ones you can find for cents on the dollar at local resale stores — like Re-Source York’s Indoor Yard Sale on Carlisle Avenue!! — you can create show-stopping pieces to add instant glam and sparkle to your holiday home. RSY volunteer and DIY diva, Robin, will show you how at the December Ladies Night make-it-and-take-it workshop.
In addition, there will be helpful nuts-and-bolts tips for Do It Herself home improvement projects from Nikki, specialty tea tastings from Cherie Ann, dessert samples, and more. Register online now or call the Ninth Avenue store. See you Friday, ladies!!
