Buh-bye to Christmas

And so it is with great sadness and at my huband's insistence that I undecorate the tree and store away the holiday decorations. I'm just not done with my tree, but I guess it's time.

So I've sent Husband and Daughter off to Ikea to buy shelving for her room, which leaves me at home alone. So I poured myself a cup of coffee and put on some opera, which out of thoughtfulness to Husband's music tastes I refrain from while he's home, and set about the task.

But before I put everything away, a picture of this year's new ornaments, which I bought this morning at Sur La Table's after-Christmas sale. I have a collection of glass ornaments and try to add at least one every year. I am adamant that no plastic adorn my tree. Glass and natural materials only.



Here's the some of the rest, about to go back into the box.



See you next year!

I just finished taking the ornaments off of our tree. So sad to see it come down.

I just finished putting away my ornaments as well. The Sur La Table ornaments are beautiful! I could spend my paycheck in that store.

Your daily salad dinners sound wonderful. We enjoy it our house as well, but I like a variety of dressings. Would you be willing to share any of yours, or do you use the standard olive oil and vinegar combo? Great blog!
