Deconstructing Christmas Bling . . .

Packing away Christmas!
I dread it every year!

After I ate lunch I got a spark of inspiration to take down the little tree in my kitchen window.

It's inside the black trash bag.
 The stockings have been on the bar stool since Christmas night.

I need to put the scalloped dishes back in the closet.

As you can see I haven't done much!

Sunshine is streaming in the kitchen window.
I feel sleepy.  I think it's time for a power nap.  Maybe I'll get another spurt of energy later.
Probably not . . . I'll let you know.

I think that is part of the reason I have scaled back, much as I LOVE Christmas bling! I just dread putting it all away. It is amazing how once you take that first step it does seem to move quickly. And, boy, does it feel good to get back to normal. Good luck. And I really enjoyed seeing your red & white Christmas!!

Sunshine through a window is always a good invitation for a nap. Come to think...gloomy cloudy days is equally as good of an invitation for a nap.; ) Your snowmen will do a good job of cheery decor until your heart decorations show up.

That sounded like the best idea...a nap over cleaning up anyday. Blessing Trish

Happy New Year Carol. I began on Monday night taking it down and finished everything Thursday. Blessings to you in 2012.

I always find it sad when the decorations have to come down.

Carol, I am now motivated to get off this computer and start, somewhere in my deconstructing. ~smile~
Happy New Year.
