I have to say this year I started decorating and 10 minutes into it.....every ounce of inspiration left me.
Perhaps it is the early Thanksgiving, or too many cloudy days,
maybe the dread of hauling everything out and putting it back.
I still managed to get things up but this year I feel I will be tweaking a lot.
Tucking in bulbs, greenery, and beads gives the sparkle without needing to "redo".
The more vintage items I collect the less I want to store them away for the season, gone are all the stuffed Santas, most of the nick knacks, and the kid type decor, which now allows me to incorporate those small touches in more areas with less items.
With both our kids out of the house for the first Christmas I have pawned off many decorations to them, I can now simplify decorating.....until grandbabies come along and I once again house a giant dancing reindeer or entertain an elf on the shelf.
