The Christmas decorations are finally coming out of hiding at this farmhouse! We are hosting a couple of parties during the month, and the first one is Saturday night. My goal is to finish the decorating today, so I can move on to the other tasks and be totally ready by Friday night.
That will free me up on Saturday to cook...
...and probably remop the kitchen floor
....and clean the bathrooms again
....and be shocked at the dirt I find when I start looking around with the eyes of a guest!
Thank goodness, everyone who is coming wouldn't care if I did any of those things. They aren't looking for dirty windows, or smudgy stainless steel, or dusty ceiling fans.
Aren't real friends great?
I like to seasonally decorate, not so much holiday decorate. Know what I mean? The older I get the quicker a month goes by. I enjoy messing with my pretties and doodads, but I don't want to do it every day.
Can I get an "Amen," girls?
The mantel, front and back door looks need to work at least through the month of February or so. The challenge is to be tasteful about the whole thing. We don't want to be those people who leave out the Christmas decorations until Easter.
But then, who made me the judge? I like the tree without any ornaments on it at all!
Can't wait to drive through blog-land and look at all your beautiful homes. Watch for me. I'll be the one in the vintage blue station wagon!
