The state of the dining area, sigh.
Those of you who stop in pretty regularly (thank you by the way) know that this time last year I was living in a hotel.
Waiting to close on this house.
I did NO trees, NO other decorations either.
Well, I did buy a poinsettia and a Christmas cactus.
Basically, I haven't seen the Christmas decorations since 2015!
(When I put up 5 trees!)
I've spent weeks trying to figure out where to put my North Pole Village.
Finally, I decided to move these bookcases and the old pie safe from my bedroom
into the dining area.
Trading places with the base of the hutch I had in there
(And never liked.)
Drag, push and pull furniture.
That took all of my energy for last Saturday.
Got out the big tree for the living room.
Brought up the coffee table to set it on.
(I have HUGE windows in the living room-which I love)
Put it together.
Brought in the heavy ladder to use for decorating.
Then it was time for Ethan's 6th birthday bash.
Finally, got the big tree
and the Santa's finished yesterday.
Got out one of the 4' tree for my room only to find that it had broken loose from the base sometime during the move, sigh.
Tried to glue and stabilize it but no luck.
Today, I brought the 2nd 4' tree down and took the broken one out, the lights didn't all work on that one.
Guess I'll be removing those and replacing them.
I'll put up the cottages.
Then do finishing touches on the living area.
Might even get the stockings hung!
I hope your December is going better than mine!
I haven't even begun to shop!
