Lots of spouses are like this, aren't they? What do you do at your house?
This year we compromised and took the tree down on the 29th, but I kept a little bowl of Christmas in the living room by making potpourri with some of the greenery, flowers from the Christmas morning table arrangement, and a few spices and citrus peels. It smells so good! And isn't it pretty?
My mother-in-law who is a wonderful potter made the bowl. I love it! She also gave us the old books in the background; the candle is from my mom. I didn't really plan out the photo (if only I had thought to light the candle!), but I like how well it conjures Christmas for me.
I hope you have happy memories of the holidays, too. Happy New Year!
