OK, so far it’s only in my head, but I’m at least thinking about it…and pulling out pics from last year’s Christmas decor. See, last year I was not working & had all the time in the world to drag those boxes down from the attic & get busy putting up Holiday cheer & festive decorations. And, boy did I have some fun. I always do…I just have to gear up for it.

(Christmas 2006, above is a little glimpse of my Christmas village that I put in the little nook coming up the stairs. This year, I don’t know if I’ll get it out, still to be determined.) Mantel last year, all white and gold. I’d love to make some changes, so we will see where it takes me this year. I love to take pics from year to year, so I can remember what I did.
Diningroom buffet, lots of gold balls & I used mostly white & golds here too.

And, some pretty red balls in a box in the livingroom, with a strand of jewels strewn about. I’m ready to make some changes this year, so I’m getting lots of inspiration from magazines.
So, I guess it’s normal to have a mix of dread & excitement about decorating for Christmas. I’d love to keep things simple & not stress over it, but I do love how it all looks when it’s finished. I need a fairy to come in & help me get it all done. How about you? When do you decorate? I always get my stuff out Thanksgiving weekend & usually get it done in a few days. My schedule is busier this year, so I will just have to work on it as I can & maybe scale back a bit. I always say that!
