SNOW BIRDS MINUS THE R.V.

Snow birds have landed on my mantel, and  I’m soooo glad they aren’t the kind of snow birds who arrive in a recreational vehicle, because my mantel is kind of small!

It’s just always a shock to my system to go from Christmas décor back to every day decor, so

I make the transition slowly.

That’s why you are seeing my Lenox Winter Greetings plates, faux snow, and snowy trees on the mantel.

I’m just trying to minimize the shock to my system.

We won’t talk about that it allows me to delay packing up a few of the Christmas decorations.

Yikes!  A lot of packing up Christmas is going on, and it may be going on for awhile.  I’m moving kind of really slow this year.  Can you believe I just showed you that picture?
