The day after Thanksgiving, we spontaneously decided to go purchase indoor, decorative Christmas lights. While we were there, Fred Meyer reminded us that it was Black Friday so many things were 50% off. We ended up with lights, a wreath, scented pinecones, cranberries and decorative candles.
We were excited to start decorating as soon as we got home! However, seeing as it was already mid-afternoon and we had friends coming over for dinner, speed decorating ensued. It was so fun!
We had re-arranged a bit that morning, as I had been waiting for some muscle to help me move some furniture. It’s amazing to me that we are still figuring out the flow of our home! After so many months, all of a sudden, I will suddenly “see” with clarity a new idea that helps with organization or practicality, or just looks better, in my opinion!
I found this crate at Ross this week and loved how it is the colors of our house with a Christmas tree on one side, but not on the other – so it can simply be turned around for the other seasons! How often do you find non-traditional red and green Christmas decor?!
The cylindrical now blanket holder that I had found at a yard sale this summer has been working great as storage elsewhere for my yoga mat & foam roller, but seeing as I use the orange 70’s style afghan passed down from my grandparents home every morning, I decided it was time to stop folding it. Voila! (Now I’d like to find a similar one for the exercise gear… eventually.)
P.S. We decided to buy a wreath instead of a tree this year!
