On the second day of December,
Not a 'LOT' was accomplished, but slowly, it has begun! Our main 'double-wide' doorway between the livingroom and the computer room is now 'decked'... (with my precious breakables - high and out of harms way!!)
As is one of the kitchen windows, with kitschy plastics (so as not to worry about breakage!!).
While I decorated, J 'played' with HIS stocking stuffers!!
During our kitchen renovation, several years ago, we uncovered an old, unused chimney ~ that we decided to leave exposed... complete with u.g.l.y. old hole in side. To date we have just had your basic 'winter scene' cover. In J's stocking, My Parents' gave J some old metal signs that my Dad had cleaned out of his shop. One of them was 'red' and just-the-right-size to screw over the ugly hole... Soooooo that was J's project-o-the-day. Measuring, going in search of the correct size and type screws for the holes already in it, insulating, drilling, patching, cleaning ~ and I thought it was going to be so easy!
But WELL worth it! Our kitchen colors are Red/White/Black - kinda perfect - huh?!
We didn't teach Tweed any four-letter words today, since NO ornaments were broken!!
