Goodwill Donation

Tonight I assessed the Christmas decoration situation.   I have a lot of ribbon, and it all smells like eucalyptus from being shoved in bags with the floral decor and hidden in my laundry room for the past 11 months.    To top that off, the bags are all labeled “Bon Marche“.  Those of you who live in and around Seattle know about the whole BonMarche – Bon Macy’s – Macy’s transition that started about a decade ago.   These decorations and bags are old, relatively speaking.  They’ve been around since before my divorce, and the eucalyptus kind of reminds me of that.   Time to clean house!

So, Jess and I will be searching for a tree and new decorations this year….and the BonMarche bags will be surrendered to the local Goodwill store.

  1. This photo is absolutely amazing! The colours, lighting and focus look so professional. Just the kind of thing you’d expect to see in top notch advertising. Stunning.

  2. Beautiful photograph! This is a Christmas Hallmark Card Cover for sure. Hallmark has contests from time to time, you should think about submitting some of your work.

    A fresh new start with the holiday decor…. enjoy and make it exactly what you what and fits your style for the here and now. ENJOY !

    1. It’d be like Christmas in July for us! I imagine I’d have some difficulty with that too.

      Hopefully I find some decent decorations. One of my old roomies a few years back wanted a Black Santa topper for the tree instead of the traditional star.
