Christmas Countdown Challenge, Day 24
Today I actually managed to get all of my fall decorations taken down (and put away!) and got some Christmasy ones up. Changed the porch tablecloth to one made from vintage poinsettia fabric, added a red bow to the oil lamp that sits on this table. Took the autumn leaves off my front-door wreath, added red sparkly hearts and a red plaid bow. Replaced my ribbon board in the front hallway with a red/green one and filled it with vintage Christmas cards & tags.
I did several more little decorating projects along this line, but most of the decorations are still in the attic. Listened to Christmas music all day and pressed pieces for another fabric basket.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
