It's beginning to look alot like Christmas...

Oh, and another cupcake! :) I've been putting out Christmas, little by little this week. Yes, I know that it seems as though I am totally bypassing Thanksgiving ... I'm just adding holiday touches here and there. Okay, you want the truth? This weekend... look out! I have made the command decision to start celebrating early this year. I want the spirit of the season to last~~ Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye and nothing sounds more festive right now than sitting around a Thanksgiving table with carols softly playing in the background and our trees aglow. I hope to get most of the decorating done on Sunday... even though my tree "collection" has become quite large. :) When I'm finished making this place look like a winter wonderland, I'll be ready to focus more on creating. I would like to give some handmade Christmas gifts this year and I really should get a head~start on that because it's right around the corner...
Happy weekend!

Good Morning Christina,
I think our minds are thinking alike about decorating. I was planning on doing some preliminary Christmas decorating this weekend too. All the family is coming to my house for Thanksgiving and we do a small Christmas exchange for those we won't be seeing at Christmas so I thought it would be fun to have some of the decorations out. Half of the houses in my neighborhood have their Christmas lights up already....maybe we are all in the early Christmas mood!!
Have fun decorating.

Love the tinsel tree and cupcakes! Glad I'm not the only one starting Christmas early - our leaves are still falling but my one small tree is going up, Thanksgiving and Christmas should work together.

Oh Christmas! I haven't put anything out and I love christmas decorations! You have inspired me to start. Bit by bit is the way to go

Hey Chickie!
I can't wait to see your decorations. I have been searching all afternoon for a black Christmas tree for my Halloween guest room. I have way too many trees too!

Love to you!

You are too cute girl!! Why not have a little Thanksgiving with your Christmas carols hehe.

Now I'm starting to panic that you are getting started, although I think I need a bit of snow:-) Happy decorating.

I think a lot of people are feeling the need to decorate early this year. Maybe it has something to do with the climate of the Country, we need a little extra cheer this year. I like your cupcakes and hope you show us pictures of the rest when it's completed! Put the Christmas music on and have fun!

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

Life is celebrating and if you want to start early, well, you sprinkle all the faery dust around that you want dear! Blessings and have fun!

How funny to meet you today! I just brought MY white tree down from the attic today! I have started to decorate, I hate to be rushed, so I am loading the tree with my fave ornaments and colors! Love yours.
