Yep, the stockings are hung by the chimney with … er … uh … caution tape. Or right next to the caution tape, anyway. And the pretty exposed cement.
I realized I wasn’t going to get around my house of destruction this year, so I just decorated around it!
What do you think? Does it work anyway?
Now the tree is another matter. We haven’t put that up yet. We’re still trying to figure out what to do there. Too much furniture is now stuffed into the living room, and the den is still complete chaos. So my gifts, as I wrap them, are still sitting in my upstairs hallway waiting for a location:
I just keep piling them in the hallway for now!
This may be a “crowded” Christmas this year — and may involve lots of exposed drywall and beams and sawdusty-smell and exposed cement — but I’m decorating, dang it! It’s my favorite time of year!
How is your decorating going? Am I the last person to get a tree up? Does anyone still put their tree up on Christmas Eve????
