Crossing Over

My Christmas decorations are DOWN.  I feel like an adult.  Old decorations are down, other knick-knacks go up tomorrow, and it’s only the fourth of January.  Woo hoo!

I’ve been trying to switch out my knick-knacks once a month.  At this point in my life, I’ve collected a LOT of cute and interesting things, but a friend of mine taught me the importance of only keeping some of them out at any given time.  It works out well: less decorations to dust, easier to maintain, and I enjoy my decorations more because they always seem fresh and new even when they’re not.

So tomorrow, my home is crossing over from Christmas into winter decor, with heavy emphasis on kiddo related objects.  (January is the kiddo’s birthday month.  YAY!)  I actually look forward to these changes.  Sure, it’s kind of a pain to tuck the old stuff away, but I love seeing my packed away treasures on my shelves again.  🙂

  1. I snatched those suckers down right after Christmas. I love the season, but by the end of it, I’m so done! Glad you’re getting things down. I tend to put a little something up for each holiday/season.

    1. I usually buy a couple of new things each season, but some of my ornaments I’ve had since childhood. They were given to me by my grandmother. I like mixing old with new. 🙂

  2. I love that idea! Right now most of mine are packed still waiting on us to redo the rooms, but I have the same “waaaay too many watnots” problem. Sadly our decorations are not down yet – but it’s scheduled for the weekend.
