As you can tell, I really love decorating with metallics and winter whites for Christmas. About 5 years ago, Jacob accompanied me to a few Christmas stores when we lived in Shreveport, LA. One of the stores we visited had this little red bird with a santa hat, and he insisted on buying it even though it matched nothing in the rest of our home. Seriously, it didn’t match a single thing, but he was very persistent and really wanted it, so why would I said no?
Well, let me tell you this: that little red bird makes both of us smile to this day! He moves it around quite often and waits for me to tell him I spotted it before he moves it again. It’s quite funny, and to be honest, it’s kind of turned into our little “elf on a shelf” in a way. It’s always funny to see it show up in random places throughout our home. It is pretty easy to spot since it’s so red, but it’s fun, and we both enjoy it.
So, the next time your husband insists on buying a little something that does not match anything you own, just go with it. It might turn into a fun little tradition and a great new memory! 😉 I love that little red bird with the santa hat, and I hope Jacob continues to move it around year after year!
