Day 20: Christmasy Stuff that I don't want to put away

I like the colors in this Christmas decoration. . . and just don't want to put it away yet. The tree is down; the snow village stuff packed away. . . even most of the outside lights are stowed for the year. But this little spot of bright color just makes me happy! (Unlike the dead Christmas cactus MURDERED by a certain household member, who shall hereforth be unnamed. I'll probably post a sad, sad photo of its corpse tomorrow.)

I understand why you want to keep it around - so pretty!! And too funny about the cactus...!

Very pretty! I will tune in tomorrow to see if you fill us in on the cactus.

BTW - your weather pixie is looking warmer ;)

I've been getting my stuff down as well, however I think I still have a few snowmen around here. Beautiful colors!

That's so winter festive. I'd leave it out for a little bit longer. TFS

I finally got my holiday stuff put away....hopefully you'll find something to make you just as color-happy that will let you get your Christmas things stored for the year.

That is really pretty! I still have a basket of pine cones and ornaments out because I want to get some photos. On my first attempt I realized there was dust on them so I have to try again.

I totally understand the need for a little color mid-winter. I do want to hear the entire story of the murdered cactus, gory details and all. :P
