    I saw you present these on KOMO on 11/09/15. These were such awesome and simple ideas. I have a tendency to “over engineer” decorations. These are simple, elegant, and inviting. And all of these, with variations, could be used for several different holidays or decor. I am very excited about giving these a try, especially those with lights!!! Thanks for sharing!!!
