Just Wanted To Say….


I am sorry for being away lately.

I have been working on my Christmas decorating.

Which is all I have been doing for over a week!!!

Hubby said…

“I don’t know why you don’t just put up one tree and forget about the rest.”

Oh, he just doesn't get get it, huh?

One of the best parts of Christmas is the Decorating!!

I pretty much have it all done now.

Just a little tweaking to finish and the clean up.

Empty totes and boxes need to be carried back down to the basement closet.

Plus I have a big pile of things I am not going to use.

I’ve been trying the last couple of years to weed through my collection of Christmas decor.

After collecting it for the past 20+ years, it is time! :)

I am trying to concentrate only on keeping my vintage Christmas items and Primitive -Colonial Christmas items.

That is the look I love the most!

But I admit it….

I still have a soft place in my heart for Cutesy Christmas, so I did keep some of it and allowed myself to display it in my kitchen and mud room.

Maybe next year I’ll weed out more.

I’m hoping to find more vintage or prim decor items this year to replace some of the cutesy stuff I decided to keep.

Anyway…

I will be selling off the things I decided to let go.

And I will be listing them all at cheap prices, I will be sure to let you all know whenever I finally get their pictures taken and listed on my website.

I apologize if I have fallen behind on my favorite blogs.

I have been trying to keep up on the reading of them, hopefully I haven't missed too many.

But I haven’t been leaving my usual comments.

So I do apologize.

Hopefully soon I will be back to normal.

I am hoping to get some photos taken tonight when the sun goes down.

I took some earlier but they just don’t look as good in the day time.

This past week has been gorgeous here in Southern IL. Temps in the High 70’s!! Well, until today.  We woke up to rain and 50 today.  The sun has finally came out and it has warmed up some, thankfully.

So this week I did get my Fall decor cleared off my porch and worked on putting some Christmas out.  I wanted to take advantage of the wonderful warm weather.

Still have some more to do out there before I show it off though.

Now off to try to get everything cleaned up and ready for picture taking.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Take Care,

Tam

I can't wait to see what you've come up with this year. You always do such a great job with your Christmas decorating. Although my hubby would agree with yours, I for one appreciate that you don't just put up one tree and leave it at that.

I can't wait to see how you have everything decorated. I know how it is to have a husband that doesn't understand that there must be a tree in every room. LOL. I completely understand how long it takes to put up the Christmas decorations. I am still putting mine up too! So, take your time. I'll be waiting to see the pictures you put up.

Looking forward to seeing your house decorated. I, too, just can't really simplify my decorations. Too many memories, I guess.
The weather was wonderful in northern Ohio yesterday. Today, POOF! It's gone.
