Indeed the cleansing has begun.
Nope, not making one of those weird resolutions that includes a "cleanse".
BUT of course the stuff must come down
and go OUT
and as much as I love all the decorations & merry-ment.
TRULY, I do.
Getting it all out is just...cleansing!
However, the cards are up??!
I love love love my christmas cards and they will stay for a while past the Holidays...
They circle my dining room
(this is the "hub" of our little cottage)
and are clipped up but no tape, no pokes, no piles.
Because I like to see each and every one smiling at us & don't want them with holes or stickyness because they all get put into a book each year.
I've strung up natural twine, with little swag here & there
using clear push pins into my molding.
I know, shame. Oh well.
And then get a bunch of those smaller (not teeny) clothespins
and spray with adhesive & then glitter away!
I do this into a box outside.
It SMELLS. And I'm pretty sure
using logic of what I hear bout fumes
Its not so good for you.
But it works.
I love this brown/copper color...not at all red/green so I don't get sick of is so quick!
it is sparkly & cheerful
instead of simply holiday
but that's just me.
The other part I re did was the mantle.
It kinda made me sad taking it all down...
and I figured,
why should I have to?
After all it is still winter, right?
I left up and redid it for winter...
I had made those pompoms from the ever darling book
Farm Chicks Christmas
Moved over the JOY ornament
erased the Merry Christmas
Winter it is!
thanks for checking in....
I'd love a note if you've stopped by
