FESSIN' UP & SNOWMAN

Tuesday, November 29, 2011


This snowman is one of my favorite Christmas decorations.  It was a Christmas gift from my cousin which makes it very special and it just draws the children that come for the holidays.  They love watching the little multi-colored lights as they flash on and off.  It really is the cutest!


There is one problem though...where in the world did I have him last year?
As I continue digging into box after box of Christmas decorations I keep finding myself asking that very question..."where does this go?"
So, I'm fessin' up!
I have been going back to last years Christmas pictures to remember where I put things last year!
I've been changing up a few things, but this has helped me not have to totally "reinvent the wheel" if you know what I mean! 


So, what about you?  Do you look at pictures from previous years to help you remember how you decorated
OR
do you just pull it out of the box and start fresh?
(Please don't say your memory serves you so well that you remember where everything goes...LOL!)
Come on...fess up!
Love your sweet comments...

  1. I want it too! What a cute snowman and I love it that it's like transparent. From year to year I forget things, one time I lost two angels and didn't even remember them til I put away the C'mas stash! Have a wonderful week. FABBY

  2. I always find things I forgot I had and yes I too look at last years pics to figure out where I had things. This year I am not sure where things will go. Off to open all my bins!:)

  3. Oh...he is SO cute!! I love that darling little face! He looks like a retro ornament!

    I sort of put things in different places every year and yes, I forget where I had things the previous year!! My kids remember though!

    Have a great week!

  4. I've always loved colored lights. The white lights everyone uses are pretty, but I'm more drawn to color. Nice to see them on your cute snowman.

    I should probably duck now, but we pretty much remember every year where things go, but usually we change a few things every year. Our mantel for instance is different each year since we never feel we know how to make it as pretty as it could be.

    Have a great Monday!

  6. Cindy, he's so cute! I just pull the stuff out and play with it. I know where most things were, the previous year; but, I also like to switch things up. It helps everything to look fresh each year.

  7. I have to fess up and admit that I have to look at photos, too. And I have a tiny cottage so you would think that I could remember!

  8. I love snowmen too, I have them scattered here and there and quite a few on my tree. Yours looks lovely!

  9. Cindy, that little guy is cute! I confess, I often look back at photos from previous years to spark my memory and something to change things up. This year I've decided to keep things simple and not pull out as much as I have in previous years. Sometimes I'm just not in the spirit, and this season is one of those. I'll put up a tree and do a few other touches. ;-)
    Look forward to seeing your decorations. ~ sarah

    I look too, sometimes just so I don't do it the exact same way again!

  11. This year I started new ideas. I am not doing as much either as last year, but it will still be quite enough.

  12. Cindy, I do like to see what I did last year. In fact, I'm trying to do something different to my hutch, and I don't like it as well as last year! We'll see! Linda

  13. I reinvent where everything should go every year as I sure can't ever remember where I'd put them the year before!

    I love snowmen too, especially the ones that light up.

    Happy Decorating!

  14. I did not take any photographs of out tree last year but it really does not change. I only unpacked about 50% of our boxes because I am trying to keep all this a little more simple and maybe up the fun a little in the process:)))

  15. I usually keep things in generally the same place but this year I'm trying to see things with fresh eyes...we'll see. I have a little snowman very similar to yours and I love him, too. Patty

  18. Cute little snowman. Don't know that I've ever seen one like it.
    I have been decorating so long that I pretty much know how I do it every year but I don't stress out if I can't remember. Just go with the flow and do what feels right at the moment. :)

  19. I started out fresh this year, so far I haven't pulled everything out yet, I may tomorrow, or I may not at all. What a cute snowman, I have a weak spot for snowmen!
    Hugs, cindy
