I may go a little overboard decorating for Christmas. Maybe. Not sure. It seems normal to ME. The part I love most about decorating for Christmas is the lights. Oh. My. Word. The Lights!! I put lights everywhere. Even places you really shouldn’t put lights, such as randomly hung around the kitchen above the cabinets. They don’t belong there, they might look a tad ‘tacky’, but when I walk into a room illuminated only by colorful, glowing orbs, I am happy. HAPPY! I literally smile when I walk into the kitchen now because of those tackily-hung lights. I don’t decorate for anyone else but me. My hubby is quite patient and enjoys the fruits of my labor but the other day he joked that I might be receiving a Christmas gift from JCP&L this year for being their best customer. Okay, I know it is a bit much. Just when I thought ‘there is actually NO other place for me to put new lights’, eureka! Found a spot. I have been wanting to put the old fashioned, circa 1950’s, large lights into jars for a while but couldn’t figure out where to put them. I set this up on the bay window in the dining room. Looks a bit messy during the day, but at night…..
I am doing a December Daily which originated in the scrapbooking cult, uh, I mean ‘hobby’ ;D as taking one photo a day in the month of December. The point is to highlight your everyday life during this crazy, busy, exciting month and then scrapbook them. I did this last year and have yet to scrap the photos, but I do have them here, printed, and all ready to go when the mood strikes. Here are some of my other DD photos and the ‘lights’ theme shows up often.
