Decorating this year is sparse compared to previous Christmas Decorating Posts here on CollectInTexas Gal. I can't put my finger on just one reason why. Perhaps it's a combination of things. Like, working more and having less time to get it all out, which leads to putting it all back. Then there is knowing that our family gatherings are not going to be at our house this year. And finally, I am seriously thinking it is time to downsize...again. I started by adding special ornaments and decorations to my gifts this year.
