I know I am not the only one that does this but every year when I unpack the same things I have had for at least 58 years, I think, "It's time to get rid of some of this stuff. I don't want my children to have to deal with all this junk when I am gone" and I start sorting through what I want to use.
What I want to get rid of, or so I think, I put back into the cartons..and then never get rid of it.
I did it again this year..but I plan on being strong and as I put Christmas treasures away for another year I will definitely send those things off to Goodwill. Yes! This IS the year!
So..when I unpacked my little silk tree this year, which is new from last year..I suddenly decided to put it in the living room and ....
...decorate it with all the teacups I have collected from garage sales. Some have no saucers..and what a perfect way to use them, and...
..I added the white roses from another garage sale find.
I am the absolute worst photographer ever!! Sheesh!
Will I thin things out this year? I'm really going to try hard. It's just that ...it's so hard to let go.
Maybe because it's something I can control and that's why I hang on.
(OH GOOD GRIEF! Does that make me a ...HOARDER??) Ok..that does it! If I don't use it this year it goes!
Much love this Christmas season,
P.S. I am going to change that bow as soon as I find the one I am looking for.. it's..GOLD. :)
I am NEVER satisfied! Pink? WHITE??? :)
