There are many things to love about blogging—friends, houses, stories,
but an unexpected bonus is that you have a record of decorations past.
No more wondering how you did the mantle
or where you put the Nativity, etc.
Since I haven't even started decorating,
I thought I'd do a post on
This was new last year. I wanted colors that worked better in our family room. Red just doesn't cut it here. This year my new thing (I hope!) is to add wreaths to a few of the front windows. I haven't purchased them yet, so if you have suggestions, please DO SHARE.
Are you decorating differently this year?
These Santa Claus figurines are from my childhood. I keep them here to avoid breakage.
While I love the look of a hutch that is color-coordinated, the baby dishes and heirloom pitcher and wedding platters are too special to hide. Sometimes decorating is about looking at what you love even if everyone else doesn't love looking at it.
Speaking of love, this "baby" will soon turn sixteen. I have a party to plan, too!
And all three "babies" will be home for the holidays!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and your weekend is filled with fun.
And leftovers so you don't have to cook!
