A puzzle, a poodle and a teaser photo from next week's Christmas House Tour. I have to say, and I don't say this lightly - along with the wrapping, I think this is my most favourite year for Christmas decorating ever.
There are MANY new things happening in the world of my Christmas decor this year. As we all know, it started when I threw half of my sectional onto the front lawn a few weeks ago.
If you have ever thrown furniture onto your front lawn, by the way, you are not mental. It's dead centre within the normal range of things that grown ups do.
Longtime readers will be able to spot a couple of things that are different in my house right away.
- I have blue velvet curtains hanging at the opening between my foyer and living room. Those are new. Got 'em a couple of days ago.
- I now have doors that separate my foyer from my dining room (I got them at a flea market for $120 this summer). They're very narrow doors. The 2 of them together fits a standard width door frame. 90% of the time they're open.
Now that I think of it, it was the antique doors that really started it all. If you're going into the way way back machine - it was the day I ripped all my floors out on a whim.
I really feel like the rest of this house needs to live up to its floors.
I'll be posting the whole Christmas House Tour this week.
Day 13 and I'm finally testing negative for Covid, thank you very much. I never thought it would take 2 weeks to feel better. I attribute that to having a diminished number of those recovery blobs that run around your guts fixing things.
After 2 flights and 7 days in Dominican Republic I only had 3 or 4 of those blobs left. Geriatric ones with whiskers.
I never stood a chance against Covid.
Have a good remainder of your weekend!
