Want to help us decorate?
I am not a visual person. My "design principles" sense is not the greatest. I am the person that the Messies lady wrote about, who could look at a stray sock sitting somewhere and think it was part of the decor. The most exciting thing I do with my Christmas wrapping is get the tape on straight and (this year) add a crocheted ornament.
So when I rearranged the Treehouse mantelpiece, I had visions of...I don't know, something with a little more oomph than this. I was trying to decorate with books, and you can only stack those so high before things get dangerous. The dolls seem a bit lost, if you know what I mean. Those red and white jugs have been temporarily replaced with two ceramic Christmas trees about the same size, but otherwise this is the way things look right now. Any ideas for where things should be bigger, taller or otherwise added to or rearranged, for the holidays or in general?
