Does anyone see anything wrong with this picture???....My home is in a sad state of confusion....Every year, the day Christmas comes down, Spring starts going up....Well, this year, parts of my Christmas are still up amongst the spring flowers...No wonder the little mouse is looking up and has a confused look on it's face..ha!ha!...I think the santas look a bit confused also.....And each time I walk down the hallway i pass 2 laundry baskets full of Christmas yet to be put away that I keep in the house...I say everyday I'm going to get to it...Well, I only hope this week I do...

Do any of you have your Spring out yet?

Until next time!~~hugs,Jen

I put my Christmas all away...but not my large twig tree.I have been just too lazy.It bothers my husband that it is still up.He says the neighbors can see it in the window! I don't care! I don;t have the lights on. So I am taking it down Monday...
I couldn't bring myself to put out Easter yet... I wanted to. Just a few bird nests and some eggs. Michlle

No spring yet -- well, maybe just some red tulips that I put in an old crock with a tulip pattern on it. Trying to get to the box of Valentine stuff -- I love to decorate for Valentine's Day! And I have a couple of twig trees still up, too! One I use as an all-season tree -- the other needs to come down and get put away! It will happen eventually.....

WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too early for spring up in my neck of the woods (unfortunately). That would really confuse the mice!!

HUGS my friend!

Jen, don't feel too bad! I have some stuff out, and still some Christmas out as well. I just have been on here too much and plus just life I guess. There has to be a balance somewhere.
I sure do like visiting though.
I will get mine all put away, that way I can focus on Spring/everyday.
I need to make some things too.
Have a good evening,
Renee

I have some valentine out. I finished putting some Christmas decor away today. I still have an undecorated large twig tree out. I need another storage tub. Next trip to the store I hope to get one. So dont fret. Your not the only one. Blessings!

I've taken my Christmas tree down weeks ago. BUT i haven't gotten any of the ornaments put away. They are still sitting on the table waiting to be wrapped and carefully tucked away. I'm not sure what I'm waiting for! LOL
I guess it doesn't look or feel anything like Spring yet and Im not in any hurry to get the spring stuff out yet.

Hi Jen~ I still have a few Santas out...they remind me of Robert E. Lee...lol. I do not really 'do" spring decorating inside...I let the outside say it all. Have a blessed week.

Hi Jen, I finally packed everything away yesterday. I was going to leave out the snowmen but they got packed too. I hope to get out a few valentine things along with the everyday stuff put back. Plus I need to DUST!! Probably why I have procrastinated because I knew what I would find under all that garland.8-)
BTW, I love those santas!!
Blessings,
Lorna

Once the Christmas deco is packed up, I bring out my snowmen to enjoy all winter. This week I will add some hearts, the some shamrocks.

In my living room only I left a couple snowdudes up & added spring flowers blooms & greens!Plus some hearts are all around the homestead!
Sounds goofy but>>Honestly it looks great & cheery!

When Christmas is decor is put away, out comes Winter decor in our home. It helps keep things warm and cozy for a couple more months. Too early for spring decor here...

Primsue said...

Hi Jen, when I saw that picture before I read your post, I thought - I love those Santas, if I owned them I think I would have to leave them out year round! I do have Christmas put away, but am not quite ready to decorate for spring. I am enjoying just getting things back in place, with a little simplicity. I have put out a few heart things, but not much.

I am still praying for you and your family.

Blessings,
Sue

Jen: I loved the part about the laundry baskets of stuff to put away! That spoke to me. Yes, I have "part spring and part winter up and everyone is confused." I don't feel so bad now that there is someone else in the same boat!
Have fun & just remember where you put the Christmas stuff for new year!
Hugs, Joy

Just got my boxes in the attic Sunday!! No spring yet though....few valentine things. Off the subject but will you ever be posting pictures of your bathroom other than the few peeks you have? Hope all is settling down for you!! If you get a minute check out my new blog www.kountryporchprimtives.blogspot.com I'll be adding a few home pics soon & launching my pattern line! I need some followers!! LOL ~Kriss~

Jen, those Santas are so cool that I'd leave them out year round. Just stick a St. Valentine's hat on each one, or put bunny ears on them--ha ha. Winter is a time of rest and reflection, so just take your time and don't put any pressure on yourself. You have a whole group of people who are in the same boat:) Barb

Angie Berry said...

Haha, I have to laugh because I still have a little Christmas to put away also. I told myself that it has to be done this week for sure! Glad I'm not the only one a little behind.

I have not taken all my holdiay items down, matter of fact I have decided to keep one primitive santa up all year in my bedroom, he just fits the decor so well.........HUGS MARY

Trish-Ladybug said...

Have put all the Chistmas away,
but one Santa and his twig chair
we made..I keep him out all year...
and I left one small tree sitting
on top of the refrigerator with lights on..I could add some spring to it...
Spring time for us starts in Feb
in the Southwest Sononra Desert..
Need to think about the garden this next week,,,
Blessings
