After Christmas and New Years we tend to clean, simplify, and de-clutter.
I have been working on all of those since Jan 1. Slowly. Very slowly.
I will not say that I went back to a blank slate.
I have cleaned table tops of their extra collectibles, etc. I still have a few things out...but I wanted to lighten up for the post holiday stretch.
This highboy is looking for a new location in the house. I am not sure where it will go, but I am feeling the need to move it.
I finally located one more blue temple jar at Pier 1. I looked a couple of months ago and could not find one...so I figured I missed out. But I was surfing their online sale and bingo, I saw one. I have a plan for the pair.
This concludes my "cleaning and straightening" tour of the front rooms. I just wanted to show you that I did make the effort...before I start having fun with spring decorating. It cannot come too soon! I will be doing some "stash" decorating.*
* I have decided to name the "shop the house" decorating that we do as "stash" decorating. Most of us have a place or two in the house where we "stash" our pretty decorating stuff. :-)
Thanks for visiting!
