Picture Holiday – Day 26

As quickly as it goes up, it all comes down.  I love how festive and warm my house feels when it is full of Christmas cheer and decorations.  But I also love the calm and serenity a clean, peaceful house brings.  I love the packing up almost as much as the putting up.  I love looking at the old treasures that we have accumulated and the new ones that we acquired.  I like the freshness.  I also know that in a few days time, that we will be celebrating a new year, and I like to start each new year with a clean slate.
