Where does the time go!

It seems as if Christmas just flew by! I remember taking out all my Christmas decorations and now I am putting them away. I left the tree in the dining room and one in the kitchen, on New Year's Day I will put them away. The Santas are packed away and a few special snowmen are taking their place. I always feel sad when I put away Christmas, I guess it reminds me that another year has gone by.
When I put the boxes away in the basement I saw a shelf that once hung in the dining room. When I had the dining room and living room painted I did not put the shelf back up and stored it away. I thought it was time for a change and with help from my husband I hung the shelf in the living room. I had moved the picture that hung on that wall into the dining room and the primitive picture that hung in its place looked forlorn, so I hung the shelf below the picture. I like it there much better and the fruit print that once hung there looks better in the dining room!
I hope everyone had a great Christmas, I know we did!

Hi again!!

OH I used to adore Colonial homes! Your sister's home must have been fantastic!! Does she still live in the same home? I'd love to see pics!

I think some of my own pics are even better than some of the CS ones. When you see it, I am not happy with the dining room shot with all the mint laying around. (You'll see what I mean when it comes out! LOL) And so much of the room has changed since then too!

I like to go to the person's blog to answer a comment if possible. By going to the person's blog, they probably get an email notifying them so they are more apt to see it. I hope that helps!!
