Here's a repost from last year. I am in exactly the same place as we speak. If your house looks like this right now, take heart. This is reality. I'd rather be facing this than out shopping on Black Friday!
Haven't you seen all of those millions of blogs this week showing us how perfectly DONE blogger's houses are? Or at least we are shown a foyer here or a family room there with every stray pine needle already vacumed and the boxes put away. Well, I thought I'd show you how far I've come with my decorating!
You've probably also seen tutorials with hints and advice about special containers and papers and cushioning for storing your decorations. Here's the truth.........cardboard boxes work!!!!!!!
Not one surface is a pretty little vignette.
Pointsetta are currently existing on the same table as orchids. Artwork is on the floor. And I'm probably not even home. I'm probably on the way to the store to buy MORE lights!!!!
Not to worry! We're having a party on Sunday evening, and I can't promise that all will be done, but I can say for sure that the cardboard boxes will be out of the middle of the floor.
Anybody have advise about how to get the pine tar off of your fingers?
