Putting Christmas Away

Packing Up My Favorite Christmas Decorations

Even the lamps got into the Christmas spirit!

I know I’m a bit late in doing this, but I am only getting to put away my Christmas decorations. I put them up so late – Christmas Eve (trees and everything…and even some decorating Christmas morning before my family came over for dinner that afternoon) – so I just had to leave them up a little longer. It’s a sad time for me because I love these silly little trinkets (oh grow up, Linda)…but it’s true.

So, as I am getting ready to pack everything away, I thought I’d take some shots of my favorite things before I say goodbye to them until next year. This will also be a reminder for my husband who stows the boxes in our attic and swears that he has taken down every one each Christmas – yet I know which ornaments are still missing!

But with everything put away, I’ll have a clean slate to begin some new projects in our house. I have a lot of ideas running around in my head – but with all the Christmas stuff still up it’s hard to plan! So goodbye Hula Christmas monkey…

      Thanks Katherine! I will be at your party this week for sure. I haven’t been doing them that much for awhile…and it’s time. Thanks for thinking of me and commenting!

    I, well We just packed ours up this past Sunday too. Put everything back into one box to have Christmas in a box pop up for next year, but I know there are boxes down there that have treasures I will need for next year. I love your lamps! The golden animal ornaments are great and for the flowers being fake they look expensive and gorgeous. Here’s to next year.
