THE CHRISTMAS CUPBOARD!
You have heard me mention the "Christmas Cupboard" in other posts, well here it is. It has officially been opened today which means I must start to decorate the house. My goal is to be completely done, tree and all, by Sunday.
I finally finished outdoors yesterday. I made 15 evergreen bunches tied with candy cane ribbon and hung them along the fence. I will show some pictures later in the week. The dogs were a great help, all three of them walking at my heels as I worked.
As you can see, I did not exaggerate the overbrimming cupboard. I am trying to scale down this Christmas on decor but every piece I take out is special. That may sound crazy but I just love Christmas and all the sparkle and wonder of ornaments. I feel like a little kid again as I take each one of my grandparents pieces out and place them just so.
Besides the Christmas Cupboard here is one of 3 blanket boxes I also have filled to the top. Mind you I don't use everything in these there are a lot of mementos I just can't part with right now but one day I will distribute them amongst the family or just give them away.
So, you can see what I am doing over the weekend, I hope whatever you have planned today you have a good time doing it and some nice weather.
