TIME TO PUT THEM AWAY


The time has come to put away the Christmas decorations for another year.
They are pretty but I am ready to move on to other things.
How about you?

Well, all Kitty and I put on display this year was a few cards -- but I'm pretty sure they'll still be on display until about next Thanksgiving...
And regarding those apples -- why not make a mobile out of them... They're too pretty to put away... You could have apples all year...

I feel a little of sadness when my mother take the decoration off until the next year.

Lovely picture.
Christmas is over, so keep them for next one next year.
I like your blog.
Take care

There are 2 things I dread about Christmas....Putting up the decorations and taking down the decorations. Call me lazy ;-)
When I first saw this image I thought those things were edible. Nice shot.

Next Christmas I propose that instead of decorating your house in the traditional sense, you simply showcase your Christmas ornament photos from this year! They've all been awesome.
You're right though, it's time to move on to other things.....

The Byrds and the Bible!!

"To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under the sun.
A time to be born and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill and a time to heal ...
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance ...
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to lose and a time to seek;
a time to rend and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace."

ecclesiastes 3:1-8

And now the Byrds...

Artist: The Byrds Lyrics
Song: Turn! Turn! Turn! (to Everything There Is a Season) Lyrics
To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time of war, a time of peace
A time of love, a time of hate
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time to love, a time to hate
A time of peace, I swear it's not too late!

oh your things are so lovely - but probably what makes them so special is that you have them out for such a short period of time.

These decorations look good enough to eat. Yes I'm ready to take my tree down. That is a project for this weekend.

Ben said...

Taking your decorations down already? My family doesn't take ours down until after New Years day. :-)

Laurie said...

I understand how you feel. As much as I love them, I get tired of trying to dust around them. That chore is usually my New Years Day chore.

Kris said...
