This whole decorating experience for the Shabby Old House's pending Christmas tour still has me wondering why I agreed to such a thing this year. Living between two houses with one still waiting to be finished and moved in to in Alabama and one waiting for that day and then to be sold in Florida has meant that with each trip to the old house we are pulling a trailor filled with the items needed to complete the decorating for the tour. On the other hand I will have to say that things are getting completed that have been on hold or time hasn't allowed us to finish . I couldn't be more pleased with the way everything is turning out. The glow of twinkling lights throughout the house has a way of settling my nerves as well as making everything, even Shabby Old things look wonderful. However, with each trip, no matter how organized I am, I arrive only to discover that I left behind something in Florida.
So as I load the trailer and check off the list I can only pray that I will not discover on the Alabama side of the trip that I am,
"One candlestick short of a full glow!"
