Bring on the decking of the halls.

I washed my brand new Christmas salt & pepper shakers today and I am

Yes, I'm ready to festoon my home with various holiday embellishments as I usher in my favorite season of the year.

Indeed, I'm well aware that Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that Christmas occurs after Thanksgiving.

I just happen to think that Thanksgiving is best when celebrated in a home filled with ornaments, red and green decorations and twinkling lights.

I LOVE CHRISTMAS for so many reasons.

Even though I'm on a strict spending freeze, I totally have my eye on a white plastic Christmas tree at Mega. (The grocery store.)

It's just tacky enough... I believe it's screaming my name. Stay tuned.


  1. Tis the season...I totally agree!!! My Christmas has always started before I do my turkey!!!!

  2. Our holiday season always starts right after Halloween...however, I told Dave, we can not have a tree up for Abbey's party. We need to wait at least a few more

  3. I'm so with you! My 9 yr old son has already requested to play christmas music AND to put up the lights outside this morning!! :) It's so much fun to have given my children the same spirit of the season!

    (We are currently listening to Michael Buble-highly recommend! and Nat King Cole's christmas cd's by the way...) Makes me sooo happy!

  4. Love Love Love this season as well! I cannot wait to put up all 5 of my trees this year!! Yes I put x-mas trees in many rooms so that I can see one no matter where I am!! Love to feel cozy and festive ! Love to spend time with family and friends!

  5. Since having kids I've gotten way more into Christmas! I've began thinking about how I'm going to decorate this year and you know what, I might just decorate BEFORE Thanksgiving! And I'm (of course!) already planning some handmade gifts!

    That is a super cute salt and pepper set!
