There is nothing I enjoy quite so much as pulling out all the Christmas bins from the garage (actually, my sweet husband has that special job) and transforming my little home from "everyday" to "HOLIDAY"!!! It amazes me how just bringing out all the old, well loved items can evoke such warmth and joy!!! After being packed away for the year, they are lovingly unwrapped and then the fun begins!!!
I live in a small townhouse, so I don't have a lot of room and have to keep the tree in the same spot each year, but I do make the mantle look differently and like to create little unique vignettes for some of my santa and snowmen collections!! Then also due to the fact that I usually get special handmade items from friends, or make some new ones for myself during the previous year, I may have to make changes to accomodate them!! What fun it is to be creative and inventive!!!
Here are just a few pictures of what it looks like here at the Zakrzewski TownHomestead for Christmas!! And in case you have always wondered how to say my last name, here is the easiest way to do that!! Just break it down into 3 syllables......Zock-Chef-Ski!! Now say it 3 times, while turning around and touching your nose!!!! Just kidding!!! It really is easy once you get the hang of it!!!
I hope you enjoy this little peek into my home and are inspired and blessed!!
Wishing you Peace and Joy~
