The Attic.

This is where I spent most of my weekend! I climbed up these very steep wooden steps and threw open the big creaky wooden door to find a winter wonderland of Christmas decor...wrong. My attic was a disaster! For many years now, I have tossed my left over inventory from the shop that didn't sell at 50% off...well, after many years of doing this and never trying to resell it, it was a mess. But I did find my hiking boots from 1982! So, my husband and I tossed. and tossed. a truck load! it was so liberating! It is so clean! Now on to the important stuff.....decorating for Christmas....more photos to come!

I feel the same way about our attic and always tell myself that I need to organized every time I bring stuff down. Now the house is decorated for Christmas but the attic is still a mess. Oh, well.

Oh, I need to get busy! I haven't even thought of Christmas with Thanks-mas just ending! We do have the pleasure of having an almost 4-year old in the house over Christmas! Makes it soo much better - seeing Santa, the anticipaiton, the whole thing!
How's your Mother? I hope she's doing better. Take care and I can't wait to see how your decorations look!

It feels so good to get rid of stuff, doesn't it? I always thought it would be so cool to have an attic, but it does look like a lot of work climbing up and down those stairs. Love your Thanksgiving family photo!

I know this isn't the point of the post, but, ooohhhhhh I wish our homes in Australia had attics & basements! Good for you though on having a big clean out. It does feel like a relief doesn't it? Cant wait to see your decorations!
