All the Christmas home tours today are going to be such fun. I have to show you bits and pieces because I am still tweaking...ribbons, cleanup, still a pile of fresh greens to put in places. I cut tons from my yard and put them all around the house. We took a pile of Christmas plastic totes back to the basement last night. Not to mention I painted my living room last week...did I tell you I was a bit insane? I put up new curtains and fresh paint,( this was not the best time of year to do this, why not wait until Jan???) but I can't put the books back on the shelves for a while, so they went downstairs too in still more plastic totes. Have you ever wondered how many plastic totes this generation will leave behind...I mean cardboard boxes fall apart over time and those wonderful totes last forever! I can see what is in them.....I must have 50 of them, different seasons and then in general. Did I also mention I get distracted easily? I seem to be doing that more and more lately. Oh Christmas decorations, you ask? Maybe this is why it is taking me so long this year~
Oh my look at the little school decorations, the one on my left is my son from 1981 and the one next to it is his daughter from last year. Memory lane is so nice to visit.....hmmm. While we are up close notice that I have a fake tree!!! My first Christmas without a real one. So after 36 real trees, I went out and bought this tree....now hubby was not too happy, but after all I think we need a break. I cut real greens and stuff the house with them. This is such a huge thing for us, but the real tree is so dry when we take it out n New Years Day. SO I just went and did it. My son and grandson set it up and it was all done when he came home....I really did see a little relief on his face.
