Dead tree gone. Check.
Lights carefully stored away. Check.
Mess from tree cleared away. Ornaments tucked in a safe place. Check.
Red velvet cake pitched to avoid more gluttony. Nope. Not a chance.
But the house is looking clean and pretty and ready for the long winter days ahead. Check it out.
Switched back to my crazy colorful candles and clear glass candle holders. Love these! And if life gives you lemons, I say put those babies in a bowl. You know I love yellow.
And the water color painting is back.
Love that pretty piano. And the mirror. And the orchid (not real, btw). The painting came from an art show at a nearby church. Happy colors to keep me sane this winter.
Remember this mess?
All cleaned up now. More lemons (fake) and a touch of ivy (real).
I bought this glass fruit bowl at Home Goods many years ago. I love it when you've had things tucked away and rediscover them. Almost like Christmas. I said almost. I'm not ready to do that again for a very long time. Now if I can peel off those four pounds I gained, it really will be a Happy New Year.
