Moving. Still. But Almost Gone!!!

Argh, it's the little things that wear me out when we move. I now know why Johnny threw away almost all of my seventeen trees during one particular move. I think he'd just had enough, he was tired, and wanted it to all be over. I know he felt that way, because as the move has progressed I have given away more and more and more stuff!! The new owners are getting the tree we normally put up in the den. Someone else is getting the one pictured in the living room this past Christmas. I just am tired of moving stuff!! Today, we almost cleaned out the house. I say 'almost' because there's still one closet that needs attention. The items are too large to fit in boxes, so they have to be handled individually. Yuck!! There's still a couple of these left to be moved,

lots and lots and lots of these,
not so many of these anymore! a couple of these (the rest for the outside front windows were left for the new owners!),
and way, way WAY too many of these!! I love Santas, and have collected them for years. BUT they just don't know how close they came to having new homes this year!!
And the garlands that graced the mantle? It's staying for the new owner with the huge wreath that hung over the fireplace. Another friend became the proud owner of the garlands and lights that graced the front door. I'm telling you, when you're tired, thirsty, and just plain sick of seeing something else that needs a place to be stored or put, you'll give anything away.
Well, almost anything. I did decide to keep this.
because it looks really good next to this.

What a cute post. I sooooo wish I could have been the recipient of some of those Christmas trinkets. They all looked so pretty.

This was too funny.... if you get tired of moving any other x-mas items ill come over and take them off of your hands! ;) I dont have many x-mas decorations (we have only been in our house for one x-mas and before that the apartment was too small, and we were only in it for one x-mas as well).
