Sometime back, I heard a man on a radio talk show telling the host about a female relative who decorated the house for every holiday. "Okay," I thought, "so what's wrong with that?" Turns out she leaves everything up all year round. Yeah, okay, I admit that could be a problem.
Oddly enough, though, I now find myself in much the same predicament.
As I look around the house, I see Valentine decorations. And winter decorations. Snowmen, for instance.
And I'm starting to think about Easter and Spring decorations. I even have a few things out in my daughter's former room--stuff I've picked up at the thrift store in the last few weeks.
Also in my daughter's former room there's quite a pile of Halloween decorations and "stuff." Once a month, for my Hey Ghoul Friend class, I pretend it's Halloween and do a little decorating.
(Here's a guy I found at the thrift store and named the Maltese Owl. He'll be coming along to visit with my quilters at the Hey Ghoul Friend class tomorrow night.)
And not to be left out, there's some Christmas stuff in my daughter's former room too.
(I found this papier mache snowman "bucket" at the thrift store last week for $1.99. Kind of creepy looking but I like creepy if it's vintage looking creepy. When I took the wrapping off, I found there was a whole family inside--)
(Kind of cute. So I went back and bought a second one. Then today, at the BIG 50% OFF SALE, I found these vintage looking stars.)
Sheesh! I really need to figure out what season it is and get everything else put away before people start talking about me on the radio.
Last week, one of the attorneys in my office asked me if I decorate for EVERY holiday. Well, no, I told her. For instance, I don't decorate for Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday, Presidents' Day, Memorial Day, or several other holidays. And since today was Presidents' Day here in the US, it's a darn good thing I DON'T decorate for it, because I'm already confused enough as it is!
