Last year I saw a house with large gift boxes in the front yard so I decided to make my own. I probably should have used a wrapping paper that stands out more. Well, there's always next year. Not bad for free decorations. I had the wrapping paper and bows lying around and the boxes came from pet treats and the toaster oven that my mother bought me last year. I finally got it out and started using it.
I'm probably tempting the rain-gods by putting cardboard boxes wrapped in paper in my front yard. I'm hoping they will make it until Christmas day. It is only 10 days away. Of course, someone could steal them but they will only get a large rock in a pretty box if they do.
