Re-arranging Things a Bit

Well I THINK I have all the Christmas decorations down and put away. Although the tree is out on the carport since hubby is still sick and couldn't help with the heavy lifting. I had to carry it all a few pieces at a time to the box. That box is mega heavy so I just drug the thing onto the carport and said when all this cold is over we can put it where it belongs.

It's like a breath of fresh air to me to have things moved around and changed up a bit.

I am sitting here looking at my mis-matched furniture which I LOVE mind you.  But am looking at the different colored woods thinking this lighter table needs to be with the lighter chair and this darker table needs to be with the darker chair etc. Cindy (My daughter) bought yet another table at the auction last night and I had to try to see WHERE I could fit it into our living room. I think she has a little table love like I have a lamp love. ;)

Anyway like I said before it’s very refreshing to me to get all the Christmas decorations down and put away and everything dusted and cleaned so I can re-arrange what-knots and furniture. I don’t know about your house but mine can sure get really dusty with all the Christmas decorations out on the mantel and the tables.

We wound up breaking quite a few glass balls this evening trying to get the decorations down because I didn’t secure them on the mantel for one and then I wound up dropping something heavy into the box I had some of them in. I broke like 5 I think and that was my new ones I’d JUST bought a few weeks ago. UGHHH

Now I’ve got all my boxes of what-knots sitting in here to put back out. I usually have to remove all my stuff for the Christmas decorations so it wont look soooooo cluttered. I think I am ready for some pretty things, in fact some FRESH flowers would be nice since it looks like I might be inside for a few days with this ice and cold they’re saying we’re in for. Sad smile 

I hope you all stay warm and snug in this mess and that you have all your decorations down and stored away.

I was just roaming around and came across you site. I find if very interesting and love the pictures of the antiques. They were just amazing.

I too have to move a lot too put up decorations but thankfully I didn't break any thaking them down this year.

Hope you don't mind if I check in on occasion.
