I love letters. Initials. Flashcards with words and letters on them. And so that's inspiring some Christmas-ing that's been going on around here.
But that's all I'm going to show you!
The snow has all melted, except for in the shadiest spots. The sun came out yesterday by midday. Had it continued to snow, I think I would have been compelled to put up a Christmas tree or two!
Though I'm not quite sure where it's going to go. Our living room has gone through some changes recently, and the important tree question has yet to be answered.
First arrangement with old and stained red couches:
We then moved it all to the garage for the Girl Scout tea party last May (and once Toben saw the couches in broad daylight he agreed we couldn't put them back in--so the living room sat empty for a few months):
New couches! But very monochromatic...we need color:
I redid some of the pillows that came with the couch and made a cloth for that table that holds the lamp between the couches:
The other end of the room:
Another view. But we need a rug and a window seat cushion:
And the view from upstairs this morning--rug and window seat--done:
In the past, the tree has gone in the corner by the fireplace. But that huge, comfy chair is where I have my quiet time. So I don't want to move it. Maybe slide the jelly cupboard to the right and put the tree a little in front of the window...?
I could move the desk and put the tree there, but it's my desk and I spend a lot of time there. And I really want the tree to go in this room. We spend lots of time in here--plus I don't ever close the curtains and it's important to me that people driving by can see its lights--even just a little.
What do you think?
(Hey Holly, did you notice the sewing box? I painted it and it stores all my quiet time stuff and holds my coffee in the morning. Thank you again--I love it!)
