Well...I finally got a few of my tubs of decorations out. I enjoy working on decorating my Living Room first. Mostly because that's where I can use my many vintage Pink ornies I have been gathering through these past few years. But..decorating always comes with a lot of agnst for me as well. Do any of you see gorgeous pictures of peoples homes and then think you can do it just like that? or wonder how they do it? And then, when you take your pictures they look nothing like those you were trying to emulate. I admit that's me. I pour over magazines and on-line beauties that have been decorating in dreamy themes...but before I can start I feel defeated. So with all of this said, I LOVE to decorate for the Holidays. Really.
I put myself through so much introspection that I can soon loose the JOY and focus on this season. I have these conversations with myself and KNOW I am NOT suppose to compare myself to others. I'd love to have a friend come help me decorate and give me a different perspective on how I have done things in the past. Any takers? lol Lest I let you think I am going crazy... I really do, once I finish my home, enjoy the final, FRESH New Look my home takes on. I so enjoy the glittery lights, sparkling ornies and other pretties scattered around.
Now, things are still the same this year...hubs is awaiting to hear about a couple of possibilites for jobs and its so hard not to get discourage. What we have saved for retirement is now having to be used to live on...continued prayers are so coveted. This can make it even harder to get in the Christmas spirit. I KNOW we need to get our minds off of us and really put it on Christ who is the REAL reason we celebrate. So I will work on this as I continue on in my quest.
I may never have a home that is worthy of such awe...but its our
home and GOD has blessed me with so much...I will try to focus on this.
I'd love to hear about how you decorate? Do you go through some of what I have described?
Okay...back to finishing up my 4ft White Tree all done up in Pinks!
(psssst, I might get a picture snuck in of it done, okay?)
Okay..above is flash on...but I like it turned off, see below the glow.
This is such a pretty Angel...I found her last year for $2!!!
