 I love Christmas I really do. My house is so cheerful during the holidays so it’s always hard this time of year taking down all the Christmas decorations.  All the sudden I notice all the dust in the corners and things I want to do to improve my house…even though it’s a rental I still love it like it’s mine.  Last night as I was pulling down all the crispy garlands it dawned on me that I hadn’t taken any pictures of my decorations this year at all!  So I walked around and snapped a couple of what was left up and presentable.  It’s all coming down today 🙂

Ironstone_FullWM Ironstone_closeWMMy bestie did this display of my ironstone in my dining room for me…we hosted my hubby’s company party this year…decorating was frantic but I loved this!

officesledWMThis was the office where this “kids” tree was with nutcrackers everywhere, candy cane lane themed, with red, white, and silver colors….this was the only place still presentable:) I loved the sled!

I know someday I’m going to look back at these pictures and cringe that I even posted them on my blog:) gotta start somewhere.

So that’s the last hurrah until next year….
