Starting Small

Hello, Friends,

How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was great. We enjoyed staying home and being hosts for the first time in at least four years. Friday I was tired, but did manage to drag out the containers of holiday decor to get an idea of what was there if not get it all set out immediately. It's going to be a gradual process. So, where to start? Small, as in the title. There isn't a room any smaller than my bathroom, so let's see how that turned out.
I switched out the soap dish for one more festive,
hung a cheery towel,
put a seasonally colored dish under the little suitcase that holds toiletries,
and put a little tree and a tin covered with a red reindeer print on the perfume ledge. Everything but the tin (gift from dd #1) came from a thrift shop.

It's not a lot compared to how much some of the supreme decorating divas do by December 1 each year, but it is a beginning. Even baby steps will take you where you're heading eventually.

Do you decorate other spaces besides the entry, living room and other public areas? I used to put a small artificial tree in each of my children's bedrooms. For ornaments they had matchbox cars or tiny animals, doll furniture or small Lego creations. Now I can't believe there are no photos of those memories that at the same time seem like yesterday, as well as another lifetime ago. 

Have a good one!
