I de-Christmased my house.
I'm a little sad.
I miss all the twinkling lights.
The house looks a little bare.
But it gets a good cleaning that way.
Although I think I will be finding glitter stuck to everything FOR*EV*ER !
But I have to decorate.
So I changed my "faux mantle" to a "Wintery" scene instead of Christmas.
Here's how it looked at Christmas.
My cardboard houses and cloches.....
And here is how it looks now.
My" ice trees" ( I got the big one at the thrift store for $3 ), antlers. a pair of metal deer I found on clearance while shopping for Christmas groceries and my white poinsettia from the kitchen.
Love these deer!
$5 each at Hy-Vee.
I am not a fan of Hy-Vee ( for many reasons),
but a good deal is a good deal.
And these are AWESOME!
I've been playing with photo-editing in Picasa.
What do you think?
I'm still a terrible picture taker ( I will never call myself a photographer )
but the effects are fun .
I wrapped some snowflake ribbon around my deer like scarves.
I've had it forever but never used it much.
I used the snowflake ribbon as a garland on the large "ice tree".
I had a lot of fun with the photo editing ....
Do you still have your Christmas decorations up?
Or have you moved on like me ?
Did it make you just a little bit sad to see it go too?
But I am happy to welcome 2012!
