I finally got all Christmas decorations packed away and put up in the garage. Whew, it feels good. These two pictures show what every flat surface in my entry, livingroom, dining room and kitchen look like right now....bare.
That is not a bad thing, I am kinda liking it. Don't know how long it will last, but I'm just going to enjoy the emptiness for a few days. I usually put things back in pretty much the way they were. This time, I am going to try a little remix and move things a bit, so I have made a commitment to do that without buying anything new. I also hope to pare down a bit. I always start out with less and then seem to end up filling every little spot. It will be a challenge, but with determination I think when I am done with the "emptiness", it will be fun.
What about you, do you put things back like they were before you decorated for a holiday, or do you try new things?
