Part of a series: Living the Good Life with Chris Olsen
By now, maybe you have succeeded at bringing in and setting up the tree, which reaches almost to the ceiling. Of the second floor. You’ve bought or made enough wreaths to hang in every window facing the street, and nailed the largest one to the front door, making bows and checking lights for every single one. And you’ve strung enough garland, that if stretched from end to end, would reach from the front curb to the back fence. Great. But you’re not finished yet! Go to the attic and retrieve those boxes full of keepsake holiday items, stuff ranging from your childhood to yard sale finds, and something given to you just last year. Now, find a place and a way to use them. Small holiday elements grouped together can make all the difference in the world in how really well decorated your house is for the holidays.
