Blank Slate

Before Christmas exploded,  I cleaned the dining room so I would have a blank slate to start my Christmas decorating.img_4910
The bay window is waiting patiently for the tree.
Yes, I cleaned the dining room, but I did not, however, clean the living room.
Or the kitchen…and I resisted the temptation to buy myself a new, black garbage can at Target the other day, and put it on my Christmas list, instead.
After some virtual shopping with my best friend 3 states away and my cell phone, I bought some new fabric for the china cabinet…hard to see here, but better pictures are coming, I promise.
Now, it’s time to crank up the Christmas tunes, make some fudge, and get to work!


  1. that cabinet is beautiful! i love everything in your home- you have great "stuff". ;)

  2. I love starting with a blank slate! Have fun!

  3. I love that bay window! I'm thinking of adding one to our dining room in our kitchen reno. Have fun with the decorating!

  4. can't see the china cabinet real well - but what a beautiful bay window!

  5. I SOOOO wanted a bay window! Mske yours pretty for me to see and live vicariously through your view!

  6. The fabric looks great! I like the colors you chose.

  7. saw you on Midlife by farmlight and thought I would take a look at your blog.. I'm from the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area.. Springville to be exact.
    I really liked your post today..I loved how you cleaned out the dining room to get a blank slate and then you took a pic of your living room and I lost it.. I laughed.. that was so funny.. It reminds me of my house.. My couch is full of yarn, I'm making crochet hats for my grandgirls..
    Have a great day..ta ta for now from Eastern Iowa..

  8. Can't wait to see it all decked out!

  9. Wow... I wish I had done the same... I bet it all looks so nice. Instead, at my house, my kitchen floor is all tore out and I don't think we will be getting the new floor until after Christmas!

  10. Wow, what a beautiful home you have! Wish I had done a proper big clean before all the decorations..
