a little bit of Christmas is starting to show...

Getting to the Christmas stuff is a big deal around here. I don't even try any more. My tastes have changed so there are fewer boxes than in years past. I like a simple look. Everything is in a storage room, up too high. I have never liked step stools, much less ladders so it is worth waiting until W can help me. However, there are a few little things that I have tucked away here and there while I am waiting for the weekend to decorate. These were my antique store treasures found at junk store prices in July. Just looking at this gives me a little holiday cheer.

My boxes are down from the attic, but I'm in the mood for a simpler look this year. So far, ornaments in a glass and silver bowl, another bowl of winter potpourri, and a fresh evergreen wreath are the extent of my decorating. The tree arrives this weekend, though!

Barbara,
I've gone simpler the last couple of years and I'm much happier that way. Less clutter and the things I put out have more meaning to me. This year I'm planning to use my Grandmother's Christmas ornaments in a bowl on my coffee table.
