Well, it’s after Thanksgiving now and we’re finally starting to settle in. Things feel kind of homey, although not totally perfect. Here’s a bit of what things are shaping up like so far.
This is what we’re referring to as our “Christmas Tree.” I mean…hey, the lights are in the shape of a cone, and there is a hanging green plant in the center. Soon we’ll start hanging ornaments from it. Ha!
Every year we decorate gingerbread houses after stuffing ourselves with Turkey at my in-laws house. This was my contribution, and now my only real Christmas decoration. Everything else is in storage, and I don’t feel like digging it out. :-\
We had to scale back a lot when downsizing to this apartment, but we did bring a ton of wall art. In fact, our movers made a snarky comment about it. We obviously don’t have room for it all (and we have a bunch shoved under our sofa), but here’s a little bit that actually made it up. Little by little…
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
Our white bedding doesn’t look this way, so I’m not sure why the sofa is so much worse. And yes, the joys of having a slipcover is that you can wash it, but I can’t wash the thing every day! Sheesh. Maybe I should just shave the dog?
(I finally have the internet again, and therefore able to post.) We’ve moved into our new apartment and boy is it a mess of boxes, stuff we shouldn’t have brought, things we should have thrown away, two dogs, and a massive amount of clothes [not in a closet]. Wow. Anyway…here’s a peek into our mess.
