I don't have anything witty to say, and my house is a wreck. Why is it that when you take the Christmas decorations down your house feels barren and lonely? Maybe it feels especially so because my house had no decoration in it before I decorated for Christmas, and now it is feeling especially forlorn. I want to move my furniture around in my living room, but really don't have much to work with. Any suggestions? You will have to pardon the dirty floors, trains/tracks and dirty fireplace. My next project is refinishing the fireplace, so that is kind of a moot point at the moment. I want new couches and new rugs and chairs...something that doesn't scream "Yes, they have had me since they were in college, and we weren't new when they got them and we clash with the freshly-painted walls!" Goodness I'm in a slump! I wish I could sign up for one of those decorating shows where they come in and decorate your entire house for free! That would be nice, but probably won't happen any time soon. I think I am going to take my Christmas money and see what I can do for this tired-looking room. Stay tuned and I will show you what happens!
