My basement is almost clean. I mopped yesterday, so technically it's done, but I think I will tinker around for one more day before the big photo shoot. I think you will notice a difference.
It really hasn't been that bad. Kinda like taking medicine. I hardly got rid of anything - just found a place for it.
Anyway. Before I got buried in all that I put away my Christmas trees. Except I wanted to keep some of them out - because I like looking at them. They are really just trees after all.
I put them on my mantel. They are perfect for winter. And it will be winter here for a long, long time.
This is also the debut of my first cloche. I feel so grown up. Holy moly!! I'm looking at the picture now and can see the piece of paper I tucked in because that rough hewn oak fake mantle top thing is very rough and things tend to lean forward or backward, depending on where they are sitting.
Anyway. I used the cloche at Christmas as a centerpiece on the dining
room table. It promptly got put aside for the realities of living in my
house. Putting a centerpiece or table scape on my dining room table
might be a little bit like you putting a centerpiece and table scape on
your breakfast bar or island in your kitchen.
I love this tree that I bought at Target this year. It's so winter fresh!
I get one new tree a year. That's it.
Can you hear the basement calling my name? I've been ignoring it but it's getting louder. I don't like it when it yells at me.
Make something wonderful today!
