Last Christmas, Jerry and I hung white icicle lights around the roof of the deck on our apartment. They were pretty. I also had a wreath on the door that my mom decorated for me (she does floral arrangements with synthetic floral pieces), and I had a snowman doormat outside my door.
I'm too short to hang lights or take them down, and Jerry ended up being too busy to take them down for awhile...they were still up when we broke up and he moved out. I tried getting a stepstool to climb up and take them down myself, but even with a tall stool, it was too awkward. I ended up having to pay a guy from work $20 to come take them down, and it was June.
I have some pretty Christmas decorations, all with an ice blue, white, and silver theme. Lots of snowmen, too. (I collect snowpeople.) I have them all in storage, now, 'cause I don't have anywhere to put them here at my parents' house.
Ah well. When I get my own place again, I'll be all set with lots of lovely decor.
I like to go to the "swanky" part of town and see all the lights. ^^
