Christmas is almost here, and we’ve decorated the house top to bottom for the holiday. It was our first Christmas with Houdini, and as he is a little more curious and rambunctious than Colonel Whiskers, we didn’t put up as many trees as in the past, so you’ll see that the pink and blue trees are missing. I also really wanted to keep our newly acquired coconut chair out for the holiday.
Owning a house means there are constantly new projects, and our latest one is that we finally bid farewell to the brown accordion wall and had a wall built to separate the hallway from the office! As part of it we had a nice little coat closet added to our entry way as well. We then promptly painted it green, although Patrick isn’t entirely sold on the shade yet, so who knows, maybe next time I show off the living room it will be a different color! I’m so thankful for this new wall, because it means that the artwork that once hung in the dining room can now hang there, which, for Christmas, means swaths of vintage wrapping paper that we have framed.
