Redecorating After Christmas

I am about done putting away all my Christmas stuff and am so relieved! Well, the stuff is up in the attic, but it is in no way neat and organized in boxes yet. But, at least it is where I don't have to look at it and can worry about it later. I haven't started any new projects yet, although I have a very long list of ones I want to accomplish this year! I am just putting back out my accessories I took down during Christmas and rearranging some things. I just love shopping my house and looking for new ways to use things I've had for a long time. It makes it seem like I have new stuff, but I haven't spent any money!

Isn't it a great feeling to get all the Christmas stuff put away? I haven't put back any stuff yet, I am enjoying the bare, no cluttered look until I am inspired to do something different.

Oh I love your sayings....both of them. I'm so glad to have all my Christmas put away. I do have one bare wall because I rearranged and I don't want to put anything up until my son-in-law or husband can make the shelf I want.

Same here! I love the quote on your chalkboard. Reading little reminders like that regularly are good for us!

Erin said...

I love redecorating after Christmas too! I love your quote. What a great saying! I absolutely love the way you put everything together. Your rooms are just gorgeous. I love that red plate too!

It is a good feeling to get it all done, I am almost there too. I am usually not doing it this early but this year fellow bloggers got me inspired. Your house looks lovely, fun to get things back out and redo them huh!? I really love your bright colors etc. Nice.

When you store everything a way to take out fall and Christmas it seems like your old stuff is like "new" stuff!! I love to de-clutter after the holidays :o)

Ah - to be able to put the Christmas decor away! I'm exhausted of it really, but it's up for the sister of a friend who missed her opportunity to see it in person. She may just have to settle for pictures! LOL! Love what you're going for though - just beautiful!

I just discovered your blog and it is adorable. I love that saying and it is one that I will have to copy your idea for. Maybe even put it on sticky notes and place them all over the house. lol
I hope you will visit me as well.
I like Country French look too.
I picked up several ideas here today.

You are doing better than me! My Christmas stuff is all boxed up, but the boxes are still sitting by the attic door waiting for a certain husband to carry them in! :o) Your "new" decor looks great.
