Incase this has gone undetected, I'll state it for the record: I love shades of aqua more than most sane and healthy individuals. This is evidenced in my apartment (above), and found to be abundantly true at Christmas. Playing with an aqua, red and silver color palette could keep me decoratively entertained for ages. But now that the holidays have passed,thinking about packing up the Christmas decor feels especially blue (no pun intended), as it means I pack away some of my favorite reds and silvers. However, I know that part of the excitement of that palette is knowing that I only have it to enjoy for so long. So, goodbye:
...sparkly silver star. Although you routinely tipped to the left this year, your overall atop tree performance was stellar.
...rosy-nosed Rudolph. Your earnest claymation sweetness never fails to make me smile. We'll meet next December and I'll melt anew at your heart-warming exclamation of, "She thinks I'm cuuuute!"
...cheery red berry threads strung throughout my apartment. You're such an inexpensive, festive fix to a decoratively dull tablescape. Weave through anything, add votives and tada! Centerpiece city.
...swell display of cast-off ornaments. You may not have the honor of donning my tree, but you're doing a fantastic job perking up my entryway in my favorite vintage glass bowl. Well done, glittery orbs.
Until next year, my beauties. :)
