I am trying to put things back the way they were in my home before Christmas or make it better. I have not taken down the tree yet but pretty much everything else is in good shape. So I thought I would show you my before and afters and if you have not started then maybe I will give you the incentive you need to start on your home.
I am, for the first time, actually glad my pictures turned out blurred.
Looking pretty bad!
Looking better. I placed the little lanterns that were on the hunt table on the kitchen bar.
I took the sequiened fruit out of the cloche.
The citrus scene is gone. The hunt table has been cleaned up.
The silver balls and beads have been removed from the apothacary jar and replaced with sequiened fruit and sugared apricot colored apples.
I placed my two little minature oil paintings on top of my fridge.
I placed some lime green and white balls in with my silver balls in my bowl.
I replaced the blue and white bowl that held my white flowers with a cut-glass bowl. The white leather gloves
that are under the books and angel, have delicately cut-out designs on them and were worn at my wedding.
I think things are looking better even though I still have not tackled the tree yet! Later.
