The autumn decor is heading to the storage bin. How many "fall" stems can a person own? Yikes!
There is nothing like a blank space to make one think creatively. I had visions of sugar plums and putting up every piece of Christmas that I own...but...suddenly the lack of "stuff" is inspiring me to use more of my "everyday" in new ways. Things that can be tweeked with an ornament here or a bit of tinsel there. Now that all the Thanksgiving decorations are down I can see the bare bones and am enjoying the look.
I want to rearrange with the thought of keeping most things where I put them throughout winter. No massive taking down and packing away in January.
Does anyone else go to sleep dreaming of ways to change and decorate and then wake up with (what seem at the time) brilliant ideas of how to go about it? I know their are lot's of you out there in Blogville that do just that, right? If not please keep it to yourselves, I like to think I am pretty normal most days.
Matter of fact (don't tell hubs, he might cry) I am thinking of major furniture relocation once again. On an even bigger scale, as in couch and big chair go to basement and furniture from there comes upstairs. (I think I heard him moaning subconciously as the thought crossed my mind) Plus, with the big table in the family room I cannot possible fit the giant tree! Also, more color! Pastels, brights, oranges! Last year was a rather colorless winter as decorating goes around Frippery farmhouse. I love all the neutral rooms I see and went for that look. This year, however, I feel a change coming.
Gotta get a move on so I can catch hubs in a receptive mood when I lay out the plan. He is a good guy and is always willing to grant me any wish, but I am hoping to avoid any intermittant grumbling and "here we go agains". Can ya feel me?
Barring any emergency trips to the chiropractor, Frippery farmhouse will be wearing some festive finery next time you visit. I anticipate hopping around all of your blogs to see how you are progressing. I just love all the eye candy that is showing up already!
P.S. I do know the one true reason for this happiest of seasons, not gifts and decorations and food, but there is something to be said for indulging in all the trimmings when they bring such merriment as well.
Have a scrumptious Saturday, P.
