Tongue-in-cheek-Tuesday...the Christmas house tour!


My friends Danni and Bliss have joined me for the first ever TIC Tuesday (on a Wednesday)!
Welcome to the Brandywine Christmas Tour! 
If you read about my lameness, you'll recall that I don't have a legitimate excuse for not decorating for Christmas.

But lest you think I haven't done ANYTHING to celebrate the season, I would like to post a few pics of what I've done in the two weeks since I wrote that post.



These are the pinecones I spray-painted. I took my friend Debbie's advice and baked them, then moved them from the painting spot in the driveway onto the porch, and they've been there for ten days.  I can't even remember what I was going to do with them.


I found this bow on top of one of the boxes I chose not to bring out of the attic.  It is the bow I put on my old sled...the old sled goes out on the porch.  Right now the bow is on the sled, but the sled is still in the junkroom.  Is April too late for a sled?


Of course, I have cleaned out the liquor cabinet...thinking I was going to display my beautiful glassware on a siver tray decorated with vintage Shiny-Brites. 
But the liquor distracted me, and I never managed to get the glasses out.

Oh well, I guess there's always next year.
Unless the Mayans were right.


**we hope you have enjoyed our first Tongue-in-cheek Tuesday.  If you are interested in participating next time (we don't have a schedule, but contact me--info is in the tab at the top) and I will be sure you know when we plan to do this again!**And many thanks to Danni for the awesome button!**

  1. April is definitely not to late to put the sled out. You humor is a gift. Thank you!

  2. Kudos on cleaning the drinks cabinet.....first things first after all. Can't wait to see all the undecorated wonderland you've created!

  3. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks the bar is priority! I do like that wine glass with all it's swirlyness. Did you make it?! Thanks for giving me the best Christmas advice. I think I'll craft a plaque next year that says, "Put the boxes back up in the attic....quick!"

  4. Hmm, why didn't I think of this no decorating thing? Actually, I think my children would stone me if they came home for Christmas and found the house bare.

  7. I am just trying to,figure out if I need to dust before the upcoming company...around the decorations? Certainly not under them. Thought about setting up my dickens village with just enough snow to not dust another shelf. Hmmm...the sled sounds perfect for January!

  10. I've been known to be distracted by the liquor cabinet myself... especially during all the December chaos. :-)
    One day to go and then a nice break from the classroom -- hope you're already off and putting your feet up, friend! Merry Christmas!

  11. Glad to know I'm not alone in (not) getting my Christmas house in order. In fact, the ornaments box is still sitting next to the decorated tree (which, by the way, took a full 5 days to finally get decorated!).

    There's always next year ...

  12. Glad to see the Bailey's. Or as I call it, "coffee creamer."

  13. Man, every year I think about not decorating. We aren't ever in town for the holidays and while I enjoy it before I leave I don't enjoy it so much when I get home. Especially when I get home and then get sick like I did this year. Last year I didn't get it put away till February. I think you have a good thing going on.

  14. Coming by from Finding the Funny! I feel like the sled can be a year-round decoration really, right?! ;)

  15. Don't think of April as late. Think of it as really early for next Christmas!

  16. This is my kind of decorating - the pinecones are definitely something I would do. And getting distracted by liquor - that too.
