The halls were indeed decked.

I love all things Christmas, but it's so refreshing putting all the decorations away.
Suddenly our house feels so fresh and airy.

Naturally we had all the usuals out again,
with the addition of a few new guys purchased at 75% off last January.
(don't you just love those after christmas sales? I never buy anything holiday at full price!)
Admittedly our wee chubby tree of last year was terribly missed,
but the endless clean up of pine needles was not.
It's still up in the air which way we'll be going next year.

So there you go mom, our christmas decor of 2010.
(better late than never, right?)


  1. Cute decorations! I love buying holiday decor after the holiday, it's where I've gotten a very large majority of all of our decorations. I love it :)

    I would love it if you won again! If you do, I'll have you enter a contest for me, I never win anything! :)

  2. It's the best, and then I never feel guilty for spending money, because I focus on how much I'm saving. This probably works to my detriment and makes me spend more than I normally would, hmmm...


Tell me what you think about that...
