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. 🙂
