All I want for Christmas is my Reno Complete

As the days draw shorter, and the temperature drops; I hear the neighbors whisper, “When is it going to stop?”

They muse about the workmen, in and out they go; Hammering, running wires and sanders aglow.

We are so fortunate, to renovate our home you see; We just wish it to finish, for Christmas and the tree.

So, I wrote a short letter, to Saint Nick for a request; Possibly he could grant, with a twinkle and some zest.

Off to bed I did go, my head resting as I lie; When I heard a jolly bellow, “If you’re serious, let’s fly!”

Up and away we did go, it seemed in a flash; Through star speckled skies, rooftops and sash.

Our very first stop, was Earl B. Feiden’s you see; We desperately needed a fridge, a 36” Designer Subzero if you please.

The Split Climate™ intelligent cooling, revolutionizes the interior; Preserving veggies, meats and cheeses, there’s nothing more superior!

The inner cavity is illuminated, with ClearSight™ LED lighting; While sleek stainless walls, add sophistication…so inviting!

With a flick of his wrist, the reindeer knew just what to do; Without a bump or hitch, we arrived right on cue.

The Furniture House Queensbury, ahead we did see; Oh, my excitement, it got the best of me!

A Taylor Made Sectional, the Plush Collection for sure; It’s one of my favorites, I knew we’d adore!

Forty-one inches of depth, it sat like a charm; Available in leather, nail head trim and boxed arm.

Now Santa did say, “I have a special seat!” Let’s head to Finishing Touches, for a chair to complete.

His eyes began to glow, “The June Accent Chair is what you need!”; I nodded in agreement, the transaction I agreed.

Its solid wood frame in smooth honey, mid-century and neat; Is finished with leather seating, cinnamon brown and brass feet.

Now under foot we have need, an area rug that is unique; But where to head next, only Santa could speak.

We gently set down, Curtain & Carpet Concepts was prepared… A Shadow of Trees Rug, “That’s it!” I declared.

An 8x10 area it covered, with cream and copper fibers it fit; The high and low pile, oh how easy to commit!

Handcrafted in New Zealand, I loved the fade of its bark; Perfectly grounding the room, a statement and hallmark!

The reindeer did zoom, through the night skies we did glean; Accents at Allerdice, the perfect shop to convene.

A Metal Teardrop Lantern, of loosely woven strands; Pressed and seamlessly welded, it fit all our plans.

Its soft light would stream through, with tiny openings you see; A show-stopping feature, “We are finished” I decreed!

Back home we did fly, everything now in its place; We did it all in one night, but alas Santa is ace!

With a chuckle and smile, he flew out of sight; “Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

Merry Christmas my friends and a very Happy New Year!
