I Simply Cannot Keep It All...







Oh My Goodness. I have a lot of Christmas decor. It is time to start letting some things go. We decorated the house on Friday and somehow ended up with a whole huge box of things that we had put out last year but have no room for this year. How did that happen?? 

And don't even get me STARTED on what my studio looks like...a bit like a Christmas scene exploded and there are treasures everywhere on every single surface. And no where to display a lot of it.

I love me a dime store nativity, but if I don't have room to put them all out and they are in storage in the studio...that just doesn't seem right. So I need to pick a favorite (ok, 2) and let all the others go. Or buy a bigger house. I kid!

So if I do say so myself, there are going to be some fabulous goodies heading into the Etsy shop this coming week.

Enjoy your evening,
Sonya

Boy do I understand! Our home was on a Christmas house tour a few years ago and since then I just do not out as much as I use to. Maybe one year I will, I can not part with any of it!

Same here, but in the ornament department, my cup (attic) overfloweth! Of course I will use them for crafting (!) but I also know a young couple moving into their first house and expecting in January. Maybe... just maybe, they'll thin my supply down a bit. Oooo, I know another couple who just bought a home, too. (Strains of the William Tell Overture, as I gallop off to send a facebook message!)

Seriously good idea to pass them on Lou:) Ornaments are always awesome simply because I use them on the wreaths...but WOW you guys, there is a LOT of Christmas in my home right now!

When I win the lottery (LOL!), I'm gonna have glass cases built all around the room to display everything! I wish!

Your Santas look so cheery. All I have up so far (in my house) is a wreath I just put together. I do have nativities up, but not in my house - I had to spread out to my church!!
