Goodbye Christmas…..

F**king glitter & pine needles EV-ERY-WHERE.

We un-decorated yesterday. 

Not that we had a choice really, because the entire mantle display decided it could offer nothing further and slid to the floor in despair.  THAT was fun.  And then the vacuum died. Of course.  Though if I was the vacuum I would’ve taken a look at all that and committed hari-kari too though. (FYI.  Hari-kari: to off oneself in a passionate fit of rage).
So, reasonable, really.

BUT – the great thing about un-decorating is that your rooms feel instantly huge and spacious – and it’s an opportunity to re-think your spaces a bit, and re-arrange.
Change up your accessories, move the furniture around – be creative.

We re-arranged the living room  – I also added some new ‘art’. 

The week before Christmas I decided I didn’t have quite enough to do, so I threw a 6 foot long art project into the mix.
I love how it turned out, and the new arrangement. 

BTW, I hope you had an amazing Christmas – we sure did…the whole day was special and wonderful.
One of my favourite gifts was a very snazzeh camera….and if I ever understand everything it does, I will be able to share wa-aay better photos with you here.

Now it’s time to say goodbye to 2011 and welcome in a new year….I have so many project ideas & plans that I’m excited about.
I’ve loved connecting with so many people on here, on Facebook & on Pinterest, and can’t wait to share all the successes (& fails!) as we tackle them all.

Happy New Year.
Embrace the blank slate of 2012 and make it whatever you want it to be;
Be who you choose to be, and Create a life and a home that’s beautiful.
