Good-Bye Christmas!

 
What did we do for my birthday?
 
 We removed every shred of Christmas, spruced up, cleaned, and maybe clipped silk poinsettias to Thom.
In all fairness, he seemed to feel very pretty.
 
 Murray wasn't quite as helpful.
Just after Thanksgiving, I hit a clearance sale at Home Goods and scored some snazzy open stock crab dinnerware just for the hutch.




The dining room looks fresher already.

I love taking taking our Christas decor almost as much as I like putting it up. The fresh, uncluttered feel after everything is boxed up makes me smile! Tell Thom, blue is definatley his color lol

I covet your Home Goods dishes. Heck, I'm envious of the fact that you have a Home Goods store near you. We need to drive 2.5 hours to get near one. Your son knows how to make cleaning fun! I hope you had a fab birthday!

Heather said...

Your hutch looks great. Home Goods is evil, and I can't resist shopping there! :)

Dharma said...

Crab dishware? Arrgghhhhhh.....covet, covet, covet. Love the new look on Thom. He's a very macho guy ;)

Mel said...

Well there you are! I was wondering why I hadn't seen you around these parts; you were busy!

Those dishes are fun! And I love that big blow fish! You always have something fun, love it.

As much as I love putting that stuff up, I sure do like taking it down. Lovin' the crisp clean look!

Sherri B. said...

The hutch looks very nice. I spy a cute little crab figurine..looks vintage to me.

Denise said...

Happy Birthday. Your maid/butler looks like quite a character. He must be a hoot to have around the house.

Love the shell tureen. Great just to look at, but it would be super to use it for serving a chowder.

Happy Birthday!! Is that why you were going out for sushi and plum wine??? :)
I love that crabby dinneware! Sweet Score!!

Love getting my house back after the holidays, it looks so big and empty-ish but I don't have new dishes to cheer me up. Maybe a trip to HG is in order!!!

La Vie Quotidienne said...

It's a little scary seeing a guy that happy about having poinsettias in his hair LOL Love the new dishes. So wish I could pull off that style here, but think I'd only get strange looks this far inland LOL
