Post Christmas de-crap

The last couple of Christmases  it's taken me as long to un-decorate as it took me to put all the decor out...and I've come to a conclusion...it's because we have too much crap.  And all that crap clouds the true meaning of the season if you get too caught up in it - the buying, storing, arranging, dusting, re-storing, and clean up after wards.  It gets to be a bit much...with that in mind, I put aside items to donate  as I put Christmas up sloooowly ...
 Once I got this far, I felt overwhelmed and we took a burger break leaving it  looking exactly like this!
 
 And I gotta tell you, it felt good.  I was holding on to things that no longer made me feel happy to see them out at Christmastime.  And it was getting harder and harder to store them, as I have limited space what with all the accumulating we've done over 25 plus years...
I don't have every smidgen of it up yet, but I'm getting close to being done. Today the kid's tree got put up, as well as all of the ornaments from both trees.  I'm taking down the real tree in the front room tomorrow, but for tonight we can admire it's tiny white lights while we sip cocoa and think about what a great Christmas we had together.   Then tomorrow I will work on making out my project lists for the year - and de-crapification will figure in prominently!

It does feel good, doesn't? By the way, I LOVE your table and chairs! Very mid-century!

Have you visited the new Goodwill Blue Hanger yet? You can probably find soem good deals on sweaters there. You could even look for some wool ones to first felt in the washing machine. :)
