Aaahhh! All the Christmas stuff and such is tucked away for another year. I miss it but I love the sort of visual resting space after all the decorations are down and before you put back all your year long decor. Gives one a chance to see the space and decide if you want to make changes and we did.
This spot on my counter held a tree this morning but now it is clear of clutter and replaced with some hopeful spring flowers and a simple candle. My little piggy hides a funky blue tile that is original to the kitchen.
Now I wish I had a before pic of our funny little front room. It was the original dining room before a remodel. We had our two year old's play toys in here and gates to corral her in that worked great when she was little and crawling, but we decided to turn it back into a grown up room. This is where we put our tree this year and you can see her toys off to the left.
We don't want to spend any money on furniture and frankly our house is full of the stuff so we set to movin' things around. I like it so much and it flows into our dinging room.You can see one of the gates on the right here that we need to take down. SO MUCH BETTER. I'd love to hang some curtain panels on the sides of my shutters.
My hubby is still out there moving things around so who knows what I'll find in the morning. Some more tweaking for sure but a nice spot in the chair for me to read to Quinn or to read the mail. Here's to new beginnings.
