I gotta admit it. I'm a bit scared to look in the "Christmas" boxes down in our basement. After my summer purge of most things "nonessential," I'm just wondering what's left down there. One thing is for certain, our 8' tree with LED lights is a goner as it took a village to get it up three floors and set up. Whatever is left in the basement, I'm dreaming of a Scandinavian-inspired wonderland this year. To get started, let's take a look at my inspiration photos.
Do you go all out with decorating for holidays? If you have little kiddies, you might be up to your ears in bunnies and baskets and eggs right about now. But if the Easter Bunny isn't making a personal appearance at your house, maybe keeping holiday decorating to a minimum is the way to go. Sure, you want your decor to reflect something special is happening, but what is the right amount and where should you do it?
Happy New Year! Here's to having this extra holiday day, "New Year's Day Observed." Thinking over the last two weeks, some adventures in San Francisco added to the holiday spirit. Simple walks through hotel lobbies and stores just looking at decorations. The city was magical with decorating treasures and some ideas for next year.
Seems like a sense of childhood fun and holiday cheer is in order this Christmas. Doing the house up in red and green with a generous sprinkling of Santas and a new sweater for Jimmy Mouse seemed like the perfect antidote to the outside world.
