Although I LOVE Christmas... the New Year is one my favorite times.
My melancholy personality gets OVERLOADED with
the clutter of Christmas Decor, Gifts, Goodies and Cards.
So... 'Tis the Season' to simplify, de-clutter and purge!
|I'm embarrassed to say, this is what our house looked like on Boxing Day. |
Lots of toys and clutter!
So... the first project to tackle is our Living Room. Obviously!
Removing the tree aways makes our home look bigger and brighter.
It feels like an instant makeover.
|I LOVE my book wreath! Havilah made it for me for Christmas last year and it's one of my favorite things. You can see how she made it HERE. Also, she made a BEAUTIFUL book tree HERE. I usually hang it on my front door and decorate it seasonally, like HERE.|
|I was given a Jamie Oliver cookbook for Christmas.|
It was truly one of my FAVORITE gifts
and I'm excited to learn to cook traditional ENGLISH food for Mr. Giles.
So... this is the beginning of our New Year.
What's on your checklist? Any fun, creative ideas?
I would love to hear what you're doing and see pictures of your home and your projects!
Cheers and Happy New Year,
