A Simple Christmas.......



I have decided to have a simple Christmas......I have decided that I will only decorate with the things that I love, that make me happy.....I will not feel like I have to put out every single Christmas Piece that has found its way into my home for the past 30 years.....its simply too much work, a time suck, it takes way too much precious time to put it all up and take it all down. Besides, half the crap is just that, crap, dated and old and tired. I used to take everything down and replace it with Christmas, I emptied my entire china hutch and put in Christmas dishes, that took a day in itself......I emptied my curio and replaced the everyday with Christmas, another day.....and so on........NO MORE, its over, If I cant do it in a day, better yet, half a day, its not happening......and ya know what, simple looks better! Simple will be my new word for 2008.....make it simple, less is more. After the holidays, what I didnt put out is going out, to the Good Will.......I will have more room in my garage, and more room in my life!
And so today, instead of emptying my china hutch, Im going to go make a table runner!!!!!
Oh, by the way, run to your nearest movie theatre and see August Rush, it will make you happy....

I stayed small this year too- not taking every last ornament out! I have been cleaning out too- tryingto sell, defintely dropping stuff off at thrift stores. Some stuff I've had in boxes for 15 years- WAY TOO LONG!
