Didn’t this year just start???  And now it’s over!  My Christmas decorations are packed away after a major purging!  If there is such a thing as an anti-hoarder, then I am one.  I decorate early and I love it but when it’s over, it’s OVER!!!  I love to start the year with a clean, fresh slate.  Curtains have come down (some not to be replaced) and a major de-cluttering is going on!!  I’m in the process of selecting paint colors and can’t wait to get started!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  You have no idea how much I appreciate it.  I wish everyone a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year!


Five more days?

Am I the only one who can’t believe Christmas is only 5 days away?!? Time flies!  So I guess if I want to share any more of my Christmas decorating, now is the time.  When I scroll through Instagram or check out Pottery Barn and the like it’s fun to see the new trends and ideas.  But I pretty much use the same things every year and just add greens, flowers and bowls of fruit and  ornaments.  Pretty old school, I guess.

I purchased a bar cart this past summer and I love it!  It serves an obvious purpose but it’s fun to decorate seasonally as well.  So here it is, along with a few other touches of Christmas in my home.

Thanks for taking a peek.  It’s so much fun to see that people are actually reading this!  From all over the country!  And actually even the world (well maybe one person from outside the country!).  I am so appreciative.


Candy Cane House

We have a couple of perfectly shaped Christmas trees in our yard but they have just gotten too big and tall  to light.  Since I didn’t want to break a leg attempting that, I decided to just light up the house.  Lights around the pillars, a few lit wreathes and spot lights and done!  Then I came across some really good quality indoor-outdoor red velvet ribbon – Candy Cane House!!  Thanks for stopping by!

And we’re off (again)!!

Well, to be honest this is a little harder than I thought.  It’s hard to write when you know no one is reading (lol!)!  Add to that I am technologically impaired!  Great combo to attempt to start a blog!  I’m going to activate my facebook account and link it to the blog.  Hopefully that will motivate me to actually post.  For now, my millions of readers, here’s a little glimpse into Christmas present at my house!!  Starting with snipets of the dining room and living room.  Stay turned, more to come!
