Save the Decorating for Another Day

Just when I thought it was safe to bring down ALL of the Christmas decoration boxes.


So, this weekend instead of putting up the living room Christmas tree.
We moved furniture and ripped up old carpeting.
As much as I know how much hard work is in store for us. 


Mr. M. is at Home Depot right now picking up the glue.
We don't waste time.
Today he and I will get a big jump on laying down as much of the wood as we can.
I thought it would take longer to get started, but he is as excited as I am.
We had almost the whole room empty and the old carpeting out by noon on Saturday.

Not much left to do, move the plant, vacuum the floor.

We only have the pine armoire to move today.

Soon the living room will look just as good as the hallway and dinning room do.

Thank goodness I have most of my Christmas shopping done.
Because I will need the time to be sawing and sanding and screwing and staining.

Hopefully we will have this done in two weeks to give me plenty of time to finish decorating for Christmas.

This is the best Christmas present ever!
Well, almost, we got engaged on Christmas 14 years ago.

I hope you had a great weekend too!


  1. How exciting!!! I can't wait to see it when it's finished!! Have a wonderful day.

  2. This is so exciting! What is a great Christmas present!
    Keep us updated with pictures as you go!

  3. So excited for you, that's my next project as well, replacing carpeted areas with perhaps painted wood floors such a beautiful gift you and Mr. Have given yourselves. How romantic to include up styling your home for Christmas and a memory of your engagement :)
    I am excited to see the finished work and all the more beauty it adds to your home and life.

    Thank you dear friend for adding grace to my day with a visit from you and your comments joy my heart.
    See you soon through all you inspire during the holidays. Love the snowman header, feels so like a Christmas to love.


I enjoy each and every comment you leave. Thanks for stopping by.
