Have you put away your Christmas decorations yet?

I mean decorating for Christmas is so much fun. And I dread the day I have to put everything away. I know I have to. But it’s hard to bring myself to do it. πŸ˜‚ 

My mom brought these placemats for me. I love them so much that I’m contemplating keeping them on my table year-round. I couldn’t help but take a picture of a pair of baby booties that I finished for an order on the placemats. πŸ˜‚ 

It’s Christmas every day when you’re surrounded by great yarn πŸ˜‰

  1. Aw, such sweet little booties!!! My Christmas decorations came down on December 31 as they do every year. I never leave the old into the new year. Some tradition I learned growing up. Sounds good to me, so I work myself to death New Year’s eve getting it all down. I did tell my husband that next year we will be putting up the tree in November and taking it down the day after Christmas. We will see if it happens.

  2. Yes all decorations are down. But the boxes aren’t quite back in the loft yet.

    I do have one Christmas decoration I don’t take down. It is a hanging fabric heart. One side has Christmas embellishments on it. The other is plain red silk. I just it to the plain side for the non-Christmas part of the year!

    • Sounds like a great piece to have πŸ™‚ So sweet.
      I know what you mean about the boxes. Mine are still empty and I’ll be using them next week to put everything away.

  3. I packed everything up early this year. It’s kind of sad to take everything down alone after the girls go back to school, so I did it before this time.

  4. I did minimal decorating this year. My husband had an accident and broke his hip on Dec. 15th. We wound up staying home for the holidays and keeping things quiet, so I just strung up some lights around the living room and got out the decorative hand towles. I haven’t put any of it away yet, although I’ll probably wash the towels and store them away for next year soon. The lights may stay up until spring. We need some color here!

  5. My decorations will come down tomorrow. I contemplated doing so on Monday this week, but wanted just a little longer with the spirit. But, I can tell I am done as I don’t even turn on the tree lights in the evening now. And really, I’ll be glad to reclaim that space in my living room. It may be a large room but putting a tree in there really feels like it’s sucking up the space. The booties are adorable, and so pretty on the place mats!

  6. As ever my decorations stay up until 12th night – Christmas isn’t over until then. So right now I’m half way through taking them down and am having a tea break! Love the placemats and the booties.

    • Aw thank you 😊
      Yes, taking your time to put the decorations away is the way to go. I like to wrap each piece and lights so next year everything is good to go. πŸ‘

  7. We didn’t decorate this year, I did outside a little. It is time to start making some Christmas memories with my hubby I cant wait any longer or I might regret it

    • Sometimes it just doesn’t work out. Before we had kids, my hubby and I did minimum decoration. We’d still have a tree but didn’t really do much. Working 10-12 hours/day was exhausting for both of us. All we wanted was to sleep haha

  8. Love the booties and the placemats! My decorations are still up. I never take them down before 12th night. It’s time for them to come down, but it’s such a depressing activity for me–my husband usually does it to save me the grief!

  9. Oh, look at those booties! And the Christmas placemat does make a great background – did you leave them out after Twelfth Night, or have they been put away safely for next year? I’ve also been having a nosey around your new yarn store – it looks awesome! Good luck with it in 2017!

    • Aw thank you so much! πŸ™‚ The placemats are still on my dining table πŸ˜€ But I’ll put them away soon – nice and safe in my drawer for next year. πŸ™‚
      Thanks for checking out my yarn shop. I am still working on it every day trying to add more products and arrange more deals. Your feedback and extremely important so let me know if there is anything I can improve. Or anything you’d like to see in it. I appreciate it!! πŸ™‚ Thank you! ❀

      • I’m working on it πŸ™‚ my preference for yarn is exactly like yours. Right now all yarn I have is natural Merino, Cashmere, silk with the occasional blend with a little high-quality nylon (Sugar Bush Glaze). And I’m knitting with the Sugar Bush Crisp right now. It’s gliding on my needles. It’s such a pleasure to knit with.

  10. Had to un-decorate early as we left for 10 days of skiing in Colorado on January 6th. It’s a chore I do over a few days as I can’t bear seeing it all go away at once!
