Wow Us Wednesdays 395


Welcome to Wow Us Wednesdays! The weather has been gloomy here so far this week, but this time of year I don't mind it so much. I like how the house feels all cozy with the lamps on. I have been pinning and doing some planning for Christmas decorating, but I won't be doing any until after Thanksgiving. I will be keeping it pretty simple this year, too since I'm not hosting this year.
I know many bloggers have started decorating already, but that's just not me. Having it up for a month is good for me. How about y'all do you start early or wait until after Thanksgiving?

Let's look at some features from last week and get this party started!

I love grasscloth wallpaper and this look alike paper on this accent wall at In My Own Style.

Find some free Thanksgiving printables by Uncommon Designs.

The holidays are quickly approaching and this cranberry walnut holiday cheese log by 5 Minutes For looks so good and easy.

Have y'all every tried a sweet potato pie? It's one of my favorites and is very similar to pumpkin pie. Julia's Simply Southern shares her recipe for this melt in your mouth pie.

Thanks again for partying here.

 Now let's see what you have to wow us with this week!

  1. I am with you, Kim...I don't put up my Christmas decor until the day after Thanksgiving. Thanks for hosting and enjoy the rest of your week!

  2. Thanks for hosting Kim! I have PTSD after 25+ years in retail and having Christmas merchandise arriving in July and on the shelves in September. These days I'm happy to wait until after Thanksgiving to start my decorating. :)

  3. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

  4. Thanks for hosting Kim!! I have always waited until the day after Thanksgiving, and really ocd about it, but last year I started a little earlier because I had to do Balsam Mountain Preserve, and I wanted to ease the stress and enjoy my own home more than a couple weeks. But I agree, a month is long enough -- which is probably why they all start taking it down after the Christmas gifts are unwrapped, ha!!

  5. Thank you for hosting a lovely party. I appreciate the feature of the sweet potato pie.

  6. Hi Kim- Thanks for featuring the grasscloth I added to my bedroom. Thanks for bringing back the weekly hop. I enjoy going through the links and find it more inspiring than Pinterest these days.

  7. I agree that waiting until after Thanksgiving is a good idea. A month is enough and I like to give Thanksgiving the attention it deserves.

  8. I don't decorate until after Remembrance Day (I'm Canadian). Loving all the holiday inspiration though! Thanks for hosting Kim.

  9. Great that wallpaper!...have a great week Kim!

  10. The day after Thanksgiving is my decorating day as well. Thank you for hosting. Have a blessed rest of your week.
