For the past week or so I have been doing a lot of thinking, writing and typing...trying to get things in order for the upcoming holidays. Since yesterday I have been all over Pinterest - and the web in general - looking for new ways to decorate my little palace (while using what I already have). So far I've found some awesome ideas. Can't wait to decorate.
All of this research has me thinking about my Christmas trees. I have a total of 10 trees. Yes 10!!! I have a tree in every room from outside my front door to out on my balcony. Even the bathroom gets a tree. A couple of rooms, like my kitchen and living room have two. I stopped putting the tree out on the balcony, though, once those nasty stink bugs started showing up a few years ago. Was scared I would bring them in the house - lol. But in the last year or so it seems that the birds and whatever else have gotten accustomed to their taste and I don't see them but once in a blue moon now. So I may put the tree back out there this year.
I'm thinking about my trees because most of them are table-top. I really don't want to use them anymore. They take up space on my tables and whatnot and I could use those spaces for something else. So I've decided that I am going to give some away to Good Will or whoever wants them and replace them with 6ft trees. I bought one on clearance for $5 at Wal-mart last year (They're only like $20 regularly). The height is just right, they can sit in a corner on the floor and they're narrow so they won't take up a lot of space. Two of the table top trees will go to the office. I have the perfect spots for them.
As you can see, I'm really pumped this year. Let's just hope I don't run out of steam... Til next time.
