So….guess what decorations are still up in my house. St. Patricks? nope. Valentine’s Day? nope.
Snowy wintry snowman? nope.
That’s right. Christmas. I would like to tell you that I forgot to take it down because it was adorning some out-of-the-way corner – but it’s not true. It is hanging above my entertainment center.
I stare at it every day. When we sit our tired bums down in the evening we are greeted by this:
Cute for December. Not-so-much for March. I don’t know why I haven’t changed it – or at the very least taken it down. BUT in the spirit of good Feng Shui (more on that tomorrow) I decided it was time. Seize the moment. Just do it. blah blah blah.
So I took it down. Now what? Gotta be something cute…I write a blog about homemaking. So it was off to the Dollar Tree to see what I could find. Here’s what I emerged with:
plus two mermaids, a bunch of play grapes, and a pretend baby bottle 😉
I wrapped some neutral yarn around the moss stones, gathered the flowers into a bunch, and added one of my floral eggs.
Then I glued these flowers and moss stones to a piece of cardboard.
I cut around the cardboard so you can’t see it from the front.
I taped it to the window pane. Lastly I taped a picture of Charlotte’s first Easter onto the window, and wrote the word Spring with a dry erase marker.
There. That’s much better.
So tell me…what’s the longest you’ve left decorations up after the holiday has passed?
