All the garland is down - the tree is laying outside on its side like yesterday's garbage ( why does that bother me, it's a tree, but it does ) most of the glitter is packed away -
But here and there, I've left reminders of my favorite holiday - masked as winter decor but you and I know that it's only because I want to hang on a little longer.
I don't decorate for Valentine's day - at all - nada - zilch - a big fat zero - so I feel entitled - I don't even decorate for Easter - except maybe a tablescape - so this is my last big hurrah as far as celebrational ( is that a word ? ) decorating goes........................so for a little while my mantel will look like this
because nothing - and I mean nothing - says winter like a pair of snowy penguins - and some blue and silver berries - I buy three of everything normally - because in my OCD brain they represent my 3 kids - one of
my girlfriends fell in love with the penguins last year so I gave her one to take home - and I NEED IT BACK
IT'S MAKING ME CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh wait - the penguins can be John and I - just thought of that as I was typing actually -
hmmmm, something doesn't look right - not a true representation -
there that's better - recognize us now?
and if Danni ( who took down Christmas on the 26th I believe )
can have this gorgeous display in her house still
|gorgeous or what? John can you get another pallet from Home Depot please?|
then I - I who would love to keep it up all year round - am certainly entitled to keep these on the mantel
and I suppose a glittery star can be used at any time of the year, right?
first star I see tonight
I wish I may
I wish I might
have the wish I wish tonight
I'm wishing all of you the most relaxing weekend - now that all the hooplah seems to have died down
