It has been raining and raining here. Where do I live again? It is nice though. I love rainy days. Perfect weather for decking the house out in Christmas decor. What evokes cozy more than dark days and sparkly Christmas lights?
This year I did my village a bit different. Threw out the messy old snow and layed down a runner and backed it with an old lighted garland to hide the cords. I had to untangle and re-string the lights but no money spent. I love it. Never decorate the same two years in a row. That is half the fun of it.
The front room with our tree is going to be more woodsy and in more prim colors this year. Each of the kid's rooms has a tree now with all their ornaments. Not sure how they would take this but hey, hubby and I deserve to decorate the tree the way we want for once in 23 years.
Of course it is dark and not great for photos but the kitchen will always be for my bright red and whites. That Santa was my mom's. She had it always. I treasure him. I just decorate using things I have.
