if you are a moron what doesn't have a decorating bone in her body (yes I said what).
Otherwise known as, how to decorate ghetto style.
First, start with your front door. You know, the one that badly needs to be painted. Remove your flag art that has been there since July and add something that pertains to the current season:
Next, start in your front room. You know the room that is reserved for visiting/home teachers. The one that only Freakshow spends all day in perched on the once pretty table that he has now scratched beyond repair. Ignore that piece of trash, and find other spots to toss a decoration or two.
You spot your end table. The one that people notice when they walk in the door after battling Freakshow and Jordan:just arrange them nicely around your most favorite picture of all.
Don't forget the mantle. There's one thing or another in your "Halloween" box that can be perched there:
As you turn to leave the room wondering what to do with the last couple of items, don't leave out the front door. There is something on the outside, so OF COURSE there needs to be something on the inside:
Now as you stand there, okay lean there on your one crutch and good leg, you wonder what to do with that last piece of Halloween crap, I mean, decor that you are holding in your hands. Another door? Sure.......how about the door going to the garage? This is the ugliest of all the decorations, so that would be JUST the right spot!:and yes this door needs painting badly too.
Whew! You're done! You have managed to toss a few decorations up to, you know, garner some festive spirit. You can pat yourself on the back for being such a great homemaker. Even better, remind yourself that you, yourself, only purchased about two of the decor items. The rest were won at Bonco. Wow, add that to your awesome repertoire. You know how to win cool stuff at Bonco.
Now that the house is properly decorated. Head outside and remove the pink and blue sand chairs that have been sitting out front for weeks!
**Disclaimer. Every word of this is true. I suck at decorating. If you REALLY want some decorating tips, go see her. She has a button on her side bar with tons of ideas.**
As for me? Did you notice that I threw both Halloween and just general Fall, which can include Thanksgiving in all those beautiful decorations? That means I'm done till Christmas baby!
