to take down my Christmas. I know I should be, but I am not.
the moment will come will I will HAVE to have it all come down. I will not find it pretty or charming, only messy and bothersome.
But that moment has not come yet, and if there is one thing I hope to have learned in 2008 is that you should let things unfold at their own pace.
Sometimes that pace is a fast, energetic flurry, and sometimes that pace is slow and steady.
So for now it all stays up and I will linger in the twinkle lights just a little longer…
I am going to remind myself of that…to let things unfold at their own pace.>>love ya ~

My tree is still up too! One year my parents left the tree up until February! My dad suggested hanging hearts on it & keeping it up for Valentine's Day!
Oh that same feeling of letting the magic continue… I can not do it all in one day like so many others… Today I took my Santa/s down but left the rest of the season’s magic up… All I know is every year I add another tote to my collection… is that a bad thing? happy new year!!!!>kim

Us too! I always keep mine until Jan 6 as is the Spanish tradition. My husband mentioned today that we need to take it down this w/e but I don’t think I want to!
March was a good time for me last year. Bet i can leave my tree up longer than you can. 😛
Good for you. I left mine up longer than usual this year, for mostly the same reasons. I’m trying my best to slow down and throw off the some pressures.>>I’m still sniff sniffing about the shoppe. I thought about your fun turquoise lamp as I was re-doing a pair last week. I posted about them yesterday, would love your opinion on the shades. I’m conflicted, loving the shape but maybe not the color.
Me neither. Our tree is down because it was a huge, bothersome mess as you say…but everything else still sits. I’m still enjoying it.>Sarah>Vintage Lily
