Happy New Year!

Yes, I'm posting like a madwoman tonight!  I got out of work two hours early for the first time in years and years.  My boss said it was a Festivus Miracle (he's obsessed with Seinfeld).

I figured I'd take a picture of the tree (blue spruce) before I rip it down.  It's so big I can't wait to get rid of it.  I'll have to go back to my tall, skinny balsam firs.  When do you take your tree down?  We always took ours down on New Year's Day.  Oh, and those are the curtains I made last year.  Like the ones in the living room, I simply added onto the insulated curtains.  They're a very subtle white print on pale gray.  Yes, it's in keeping with my desire to use more neutrals.  When I get sick of the toile wallpaper I want to paint this room Stonington Gray.  I still love the paper, though, even though it's been up for seven years.

I wish you and yours a healthy, joyful New Year.  May we all be in God's will.

Your tree looks great. I love the warmth of colored lights. Stonington Gray is a great color but I do love your toile wallpaper. I would never have the guts to use it.

Wishing you a happy new year, Durf!
