now that you know a little about our ArKANSaS farm, let me show ya what we did last ThaNKSGiVING…
we built a teepee.
a hodgepodge, woodsy, sticks & stones, davy crockett-esque, teepee.
it was unplanned, it was spontaneous. it just happened. it just seemed like the thing to do.
complete with a heart-shaped firepit…
and funky AiRSTreAM lights…
gather long, straight branches and tie together at the top (don’t tell anyone because it’s verrrrrry un-woodsmanlike, but we used zip ties. i mean, helllooooo, we are junk gypsies and we DO believe that pretty much any problem can be fixed, solved, or otherwise re-directed using zip ties!)
we then covered it with leafy branches & green Yaupon Holly (the red berries were the perfect pop of color for that decorator touch!:))
frame your door with grapevine or any other type of thick vine
throw on a grapevine wreath while you’re at it (home sweet teepee)
deck the halls with some totally junk gypsy-fide ChRiSTMAS lights
6. grab some cider and enjoy your room with a view…
happy THaNKSGiVING, y’all!!!
send us your teepee pics!
