My Favorite Things

Christmas 20110 25

I have to tell you all something. I did something a few weekends ago. Something that was very hard for me to do. I purged a lot of my Christmas decorations.

I promised myself last year that I was going to simplify my holidays and I did, but I fell short last year when it came to the decoration department.

I had 6 big Rubbermaid bins filled with decorations. That’s not including the stuff that didn’t fit into the bins. Yikes! It was outta control.

About 8 years ago I did a radical purge. 8 years later things started to accumulate again. Hence this purge. I remember putting at least 3 bins full of stuff I wasn’t going to use back up in the attic last year. Why was I holding on to stuff I didn’t even display in my house?

I started asking myself….do I really need all this stuff? Can I just hold on to the pieces I love? The ones that make smile when I uncover them each December. The ones that mean so much to me?

It was hard, but I did it and I really feel alot better about it.

Some of my favorite tree ornaments.

One of my favorite Santa's given to me by my Uncle Al and Aunt Claire. I think of them every time I see him.
