Mark Your Calenders

I can't believe I am saying this, but it is time to think about how we will be decorating our homes for Christmas. Eek! I know some of you like to jump the gun and start now, but I don't start until after Thanksgiving. I say one holiday at a time. I do however like to start looking at holiday magazines, pinterest, and stores for ideas.

These are pictures of some Christmas vignettes I created last year. It's fun looking back. I actually saw things that I forgot I had. This actually gets me excited about decorating this year.
 
Speaking of Christmas vignettes I am joining three other stylish bloggers to host some fun parties. I am hosting vignettes and mantels. You can share table vignettes, hutches, kitchen counters, etc. and your dressed up mantels.  Any Christmas vignette in your home.

Ann from On Sutton Place invited me to join this group and I thank her.



The fun begins December 2nd, but the link up will begin the night before so be sure and mark your calenders.

  4. I'm one of those crazies that starts early (already pulled out 2 boxes yesterday). My excuse is that Canadian Thanksgiving has come and gone, so Xmas is the next holiday for us! Also, we host an annual big party 3rd week in Nov so I need to get cracking to get it all decorated and some baking done for the party. I'd prefer to do it in Dec, but there are so many work functions going on that no one seems to have time then. I'll be ready for your linky party in plenty of time =)

  5. Kim! I'm with you- I start getting excited about it but won't actually do it until after we celebrate Thanksgiving. I am going through my Christmas things (since 1975 I've been collecting) and letting the 4 adult kids choose until it is all portioned out-(keeping what I want first, of course). I have so much STUFF it is sad....or crazy...yeah...I'm going with crazy!

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend- I can't believe you aren't PAINTING something!!! xo Diana

    LOVE your fresh tree greens.I am planning on doing all real greens.I have done artificial greens that look authentic.But I am using those in my space this year.The only think fake will be our trees.

  10. I don't think I'm going to put up trees this year. I've come to think that is too predictable. Think I'll decorate in some different ways, but probably not starting till December. I get tired of it otherwise.

  11. You have some gorgeous vignettes shown from last year! I love the centerpiece on your coffee table in the great room and the one in your foyer. I was just out shopping early today and stopped in Michaels briefly. They are in full swing there with all of their holiday decorations! Already had some of it on sale too. I'm like you though and prefer to wait until after Thanksgiving to start decorating.

  17. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all your vignettes from Christmas last year. I love how you incorporated natural elements into your designs, something I hope to do this year. I'll return here for more inspiration! Can't wait for the linky party!
