I've been faffing around making gifts and catching up on work and de cluttering my entire house. Room by room I have purged the unnecessary and undesirable. Since the master bedroom is still under construction, all of it's contents are in other rooms. I can't stand clutter, so I been ruthless. I have only a few things to go back into the bedroom when completed. Two loads to Goodwill. A load of dog towels, toys and pet beds to the Humane Society. (I hope you Burlington Goodwill hunters enjoy some of my donations...there were some great bits).
Everyone has been posting their Christmas Decor on their blogs for weeks. I did string a cedar garland over the mantle and some Indian Mercury glass balls. Along with my Santa Bunting that I purchased in Chicago.
With great effort I tossed 2 huge pine cones on the blue dresser.
My...I still have pussy willow in the big vase....shame
I usually fill the footed dish with Christmas chocolates, but it is getting low already.....
We are putting the tree in the basement this year. We haven't got a great spot in the living room and with loads of people and my mum's wheelchair, it is far to cramped. We will get 2 large fellas to carry her down in her chair on Christmas Day. The tree will go up next Wednesday when both kids arrive home.
This gorgeous painting was a trade with my friend Lorraine. Her husband hated it, so I traded a vintage table for it......I think I got the better end of this deal.
I love this not so jolly paper mache Santa....a gift from a friend I have sadly lost touch with...I do think of her every Christmas though...
My fake Paper Whites. Next to the antique plastr mirror that I found on the road. Really.
Evidence in the hallway.....Lindt chocolate wrappers...and dust..Christmas dust
It's not a lot of decorating, but all my house can manage. Any more and it starts whinging.
I did throw a red woolly blanket on the guest room bed......
