Changes...


Life seems to be full of changes these days.


A new neighbour..


Lots of new tangles to get out of..


...and I've really noticed that my holiday decor has taken a turn.


It use to be..well, styled.  
I'm a stylist, it's what I do.
But..then I had a baby four years ago.


And now, creepy Angels or Queens...not sure, but they tug at my heart.


'Stuff' clutters my counters.


And embarrassing displays make me smile.


I still have some bits of my own.  
With several additions...


But I've long since stopped caring about my idea of the perfect Christmas.


This is it.
It is perfect.


It's also up a lot higher this year.
