Good morning and welcome Through My Back Door. Grab a mug and get yourself a cup of coffee. I love it when you make yourself at home. After all you have been coming Through My Back Door for a long time now. I always love seeing you because I know we will have a good visit.
I have been "tweaking". Yes, I have! You can't believe it can you? When I put my Christmas away, the day after Christmas, I decided to declutter. I think there must be something wrong with me but I cannot feel sad putting my decorations away. I am so ready to reclaim my house for the winter. Nothing extra comes out until a little bit before Valentines Day, and then I will put some hearts. Not many, but as you know I LOVE hearts. Not the cut out 60-70's hearts, but special ones. Anyway, I digress, when I put things away this year, I decided I was not going to have many smalls out. I know so many of you collect brooms, mashers, rolling pins, graters, etc. Not me. Deb had a copper candy kettle full of rolling pins yesterday and I asked her why she had all that stuff? She said because she liked it. Well, I am not one who does, so, now I have hardly any smalls out and I like it. I will share a few pictures of my "less than" decor. One of the things I always wanted to do was hang my spice box. There was only one place to hang it and that was where my wall of love was. Well after lots of thought, I dismantled that wall and hung my spice box and I am loving it.
I put the candle box from the same state on the tavern table.
PS: After receiving so many private emails and lots of prayer I will keep the blog going for a while longer. The hits are staggering to me. I never expected it
PSS:I am getting excited as the first trip of 2016 is coming up soon.
PSSS: I received an article on my FB timeline that there would be no more Cadbury Caramel eggs, due to a lawsuit by Hershey. Well that sent me into a nose dive! However my neighbors, Jackie and Phil found some the other day, When I got home that day, there was a bag of them on my back door knob! I knew exactly where they came from. I called her and said I was glad her hens were laying. She replied, that she gathered them because she knew I would be afraid too! I love them.
