Out of the Closet
November 28, 2009
The kids beg me all November to open the Christmas closet. It’s a big deal because the Christmas closet is hidden in a secret hiding place where no one else can see it, and it’s a little tricky to access.
When we remodeled our house three years ago, we insisted on claiming every inch of storage possible. Under the staircase was yet another place for us to incorporate a storage space dedicated solely to Christmas.
Mr. CG calls it ‘the vault’ and it’s secretly hidden behind the dining room hutch. Inside is 42 x 120 inches of great storage. Every January I stuff it full of all of our decorations, and every year after Thanksgiving, we open it up again.
Take a peek:
When I said I liked Christmas, I kind of meant it.
This is only half of my collection – just the interior decor.
Another eight boxes of the outdoor decor are sitting in the garage.
Now if I can only convince my hub to climb up on our second story roof
and hang those lights.
