happy tuesday!

 ahhhh.... finally feeling 90 percent better!  I'll take it!  and off to work I shall go this morning!  I almost am looking forward to it.  While Ive been home all these days I have managed to putter a little and started my christmas decorating.  I SERIOUSLY have too much stuff!!  
 Im not putting everything out this year.  only my favorites.    But thats a problem.. because almost EVERYTHING is my favorite!  lol!
 I have to admit that I am starting to find my obsession for all this stuff to be a little bit overwhelming and I think I should paint everythin in my house white and then decorate with only fresh greens and a few whimsical pieces here and there.    However, who am I fooling?  I surely am not capable of making that kind of change!  lol!
 anyways..  it is what it is!  
Oh.. and this....  (below)  She what I have to live with?  lol!  this I found several days after thanksgiving...  I dont know why it took me days to find it because it was in my face on my fridge and I probably looked at it oh you know 5 or 6 times a day! lol!   anyways.. yes.. one of my sweet children left this little surprise fore me.  After a little investigation and poor Robert being blamed by all of his siblings..  It turns out to be Tony (jr).   oh those kids... they're always messing with me! LOL!

OK.. so with that said..   I really need to get moving so that I can make it to work a little early this morning.
Happy Tuesday!

You sound like me, Vivian - I am not putting even half of my Christmas decorations out this year. Not in the mood and looking ahead to putting it away has me keeping things simple. Your decorations look so cute!

I actually want to go through everything and re-organize it or get rid of some. I've been doing a little bit a day. I had hoped to have it all done over the weekend, but that didn't work out.

Glad to read that you are feeling better. Your family has a great sense of humor. Love all your Christmas treasures. Keep the pics coming! I keep thinking I'll pair back my Christmas decorating because Halloween is over the top, but I'm afraid it'll be all coming back out and now I'm finding myself taking things to the cottage too! Merry Christmas, dear friend!

Glad you are feeling better, terrible to be sick this time of year. I'm feeling overwhelmed with all my holiday stuff also. Gonna sell some, gift some and donate some. Not fair that its is all so darn cute and hard to resist.

Oh those kids, lol! .

I can hardly bear it that my grands moved away, and I wish I had a goofy message on my fridge! You are blessed gf! I also have waaaaay too much stuff. Hubs brought in 30 tubs. Whaaaaaaat! And, I made some new stuff, too! I have to sort through and donate! Aaaaaaack! Glad you are feeling better! I loved this happy post.

Hi Viv, I know what you mean about the decorations, I am overwhelmed by what I have but always seem to find something more I just gotta have.

I like how you said you are "almost" looking forward to going back to work. I can relate...love all your Christmas goodies!

Wonderful decorations and wonderful photos! Glad you are on the mend!

So glad to hear you are feeling better! I am seriously going through my stuff for Christmas and getting rid of a bunch...if it isn't vintage or retro and has no special meaning...it goes! Have a good week Viv!

I feel the SAME way. I kept it so simple this year. I don't know what my problem is. The kids decorated the tree and whatever didn't get put on it stays in the bins.
I think I need a change. I've been doing vintage for at least 8 years now and thinking next year may need to do something different. I used to do more ofa country/rustic theme and may go back to that....just for a change. I plan on saving most of the vintage for my kids someday when they move into their own homes and discover they not only need a tree, but decorations for it!

Hi Viv, I'm glad you are feeling better. Your decorations are all so cute, I wouldn't be able to choose just a few!
I've been to the Goodwill so much, my husband is like "you can't MAKE me believe we need anything else from Goodwill"!!

Hi Viv. I opened my package this evening and I LOVE everything! I'll email you later. Thanks again!
