We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. My Dear Daughter prepared the turkey and pretty much most of the meal at her house. It smelled WONDERUL in there!!
And when it was all over, it was time for the transition to Christmas!! One year as I was putting away my Christmas decorations, it just seemed so bare. All I did when I decorated for Christmas was to add a few little knick knacks here and there and when I put them away, it just seemed so blah. Sooooo.....
I had the idea of packing away all my normal decorations and only put out Christmas ones. It's a chore, but it's worth it to me. And, hubby. One year, I told him I wasn't going to go "all out" with the Christmas decorations and he got all "sad" on me. So, now I know who I'm decorating for!
And, he helps! We keep all this stuff in the attic. I unpack Christmas and pack the everyday stuff in those same boxes.
And there are a LOT of them!
I figured out that I should always save the boxes that things come in for packing and storing.
I always wanted Christmas dishes. I got these a few years ago from Kmart. They were super affordable and I just love them. After Christmas that year I went back and bought more at a huge discount. So, now I have extra in the cupboard and at Christmas dinner I don't have to take these down to eat on!
And of course the fireplace. All ready for Santa!
That's it for now....more to come!! Are you all ready for Christmas?
