...but it's busy, busy, BUSY!
I'm getting there..slowly. It didn't use to be this difficult to get the house ready for Christmas. It isn't that I don't enjoy it, I do, it's just seems to be endless..not the decorating part, but the getting stuff out.
I still have cartons..and I think I will just stop.
I dig, I fix, I change...change again and I start all over. :)
Now I think I know why my Mom got less and less stuff out each year.
My copy is ...SIGNED..yep! Right place at the right time! :)
Have you read this little book? If you have you will know why it is special to me.
I am beginning to identify with it more every year!
ok..into everything. Tip..when in doubt...stuff it! :)
I decorate with toys because...when you have seven children and are broke...that's just what you do!
Over the years I found I loved digging out the toy and finally most just stay out all year just in the living room.
Dollies, gotta have those dollies. Found my tiny ice skates right off this year. I usually have to hunt for them...
I collect old children's books, but I guess I collect a lot of stuff. The little pink village doesn't show up very well because I had to use the flash.. It was painted by a dear friend I met years ago on ebay, Bea @ Relic's and Roses.
So..I'm making progress. I love this time of year. It's work, but happy work!
The kids love it and that means a lot to me.
The tree? Well, it's bought, trimmed and in a bucket of water out back along with all the greenery.
Staying fresh until it's all in place. Lots and lots of fresh greenery!
The house ...well..it's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas!
