Well, I host thanksgiving Day dinner here, per usual-
so I must keep our autumn decor up tioll afterwards...
But I am soooo "chaomping at the bit" to get started
on my Christmas holiday season decorating!
First stop, I made this new holiday blog header-
changing it out to be seasonal for me is quite rare.
I am revisiting some of my more favorite pics
of past Christmases around our nest to share with you.
For those who recognize a pic (or ten)
just pretend it's fresh stuff- after all, it's been quite a while!
And chance are if I have forgotten them, perhaps you have as well!
Denial: not just for breakfast anymore.
I am doing this to whet my whistle and try a bit to get myself
in the Jingle Bell Spirit!
If I am able to inspire anyone else in the process,
than Buddy-the-Elf would be glad about it, too!
Hopefully this will satisfy me for the time being, until I get
all the autumn decorations put away and lug up all the
Christmas holiday boxes.
I tend to lean towards a more Nordic/Scandanavian Christmas
winter vibe, with little touches of natural, neutral, vintage, bright -
with a tiny bit of country farmhouse/rustic thrown into the mix.
Yes, I believe I am the "Heinz 57" of Christmas decor! Haha!
I am not ready for what the holidays take of me to do it all well.
(Do you ever enter your holiday season feeling that way?)
Sometimes I jump in with both feet and all sorts of gusto.
Not happenin' this year. Not yet, anyway. Hopefully it will though!
Plus I have a little time yet- as we're all just getting started now.
Pinterest is an amazing source of inspiration, too.
I keep perusing it hoping my Eureka Moment will happen.
Still feeling nothing.......yet....
One of my favorite things to do to get in the holiday spirit
is to pour over every awesome magazine at the book store.
I've already been there twice already. Hrm....
Well, I did feel a slight twinge of something resembling jolliness...
it really shoulda worked, it always has before!
My niece said she'd come help me with the tree over the weekend.
I have hired her in the past - and this year I am not climbing a ladder
after my foot being in a boot most of the summer!
She is saving up for a car and I am saving from a broken bone.
I am listening to some beautiful Christmas music right now,
thinking about how truly special this whole season is....
And how it is perfectly ok to enter into it slowly, savoring each day.
I do believe I am getting cheered up a bit
just looking at all my pics
trying to figure out which ones to share todeay!
Well, I don't know about you all,
but this kinda helped me feel better today!
As always, thank you for your visit!
