#3. Decorative Containers
The holidays are meant to be a time to enjoy precious moments spent with family and friends, but all too often we find ourselves rushing to decorate our homes perfectly. The good news is a few garlands of evergreens, a colorful wreath in the window, or an arrangement of simple votives flickering on the mantel can create an abundance of cheer. Here are some quick and easy ways to make your home festive. Here, a glass vase brims with colorful glass balls for a glittering centerpiece.
#4. Pretty Pinecones
Tucking in a pinecone here and there -- in addition to adding texture, these little gifts from nature are free and plentiful during the winter.
#5. Recycle and Reuse
Older holiday decorations can be given new life outside with small sprays of evergreens, berries and beautiful ribbon. Use found objects like antlers, vintage skis, or snowshoes embellished with evergreens boughs and winterberries can also create festive scenes.Photograph and tip courtesy of Mariani Landscape, Lake Bluff, Illinois

#7. Simple Elegance

#8. Deck Out That Bench
Put a bench to work in the off-season: Give it holiday spirit with an arrangement of holiday greenery, pinecones, gazing balls, and ornaments. Look around your garden for small spaces to stage a winter display. A basket of pinecones with cut boxwood will not only dress up an empty bench, but will also help you complete your gardening chores for the season.

#10. A Hearthful of Poinsettias

How We Bought Our First Home (On a Tight Budget) First-time home-
"We have been working with Joe for quite some time trying to secure a home a bit out of the deeper snow of the Chester area. After the disapointment of losing out on a piece of property that we loved, Joe lined up more properties within the week to view. Getting us back out there was what we needed. I was ready to give up.
Thanks to Joe we have made an offer on an oustanding little house and are on our way to moving out of the snow.
Joe is no further away than a phone call or a quick e-mail. He is committed and has been fun to work with.
