You have to laugh, or you will just want to cry! What is it they say, if you can't laugh at yourself....or whatever that saying is...I am not laughing yet...but I'm trying! My house is a mess, o.k., understatement, my house is horrendous :0! If that is a word at all, this is my kitchen window, BAD, oh so bad! You see that tiny little elve sitting on the ledge, that is the only Christmas decoration I have out besides the snowmen I made and listed on Etsy last week! And does that rubbermaid bowl with murky water and growing vine excite you? I am trying to get a head start on Spring...LOL! and that cute HOPE tin, a relic from last Christmas that just never got put up, really thought I could use some hope out all year! Then there is the collage of "stuff" in the window box, old clock faces, french truffle sign, metal flower hook, wire soap dish and oh yes, don't miss the blue scrubber sponge.....what a vingette!! Then there is the fall dishtowel that is hanging on the hook.....I have Christmas ones, still in the Christmas decoration boxes! and where is the window treatment you may ask???? What, after getting everyone elses put in place you want me to have one too? and the dust...do you see all the dust????? and the chandelier has it's polka dotted shades and not it's holiday shades! How many days is it to Christmas??? Oh, no really don't tell me, I can't handle it! I have exactly two days to clean house, decorate the tree, hang the stockings, plan the menu, wrap the gifts, oh, darn it that means I have to go shop too! All of this before Monday when I need to head out to work with a smile on my face to finish up last minute details for clients.....am I a bit too sarcastic this a.m., why yes, you might just say that!!! I spend my days in homes that have been decorated since before Thanksgiving, but mine, well, it has a long way to go in a very short time........very SHORT time. Each year I promise myself I will take time for my house and my family....here it is a few days till Christmas and I am in the same place as last year!!! Guess I better quit the griping/typing and get BUSY!!! Pray for me to have energy, stamina, focus or maybe we better start praying for a miracle on 7th St!!!!! Check out my sister site at www.warehouseartchix.com, and don't for get to buy some snowmen from the Etsy shop, it will make my day!!!
