One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words. ~ Goethe

Where to begin ~

 
 
 
I had the loveliest Thanksgiving and the next day my Sister came to spend the week with me, so all Christmas decorating was put on hold while we had fun: Shopping, movies, museums and eating out, plus lots of visiting and laughing!
 
Yesterday after I took her to the airport I came home, put away all of the fall decor, and lugged up the containers of Christmas decorations from the basement I wondered...just where to begin.
 
 
 

 
With Miss Twiggley still in her kitten stage I have decided that this will be the Christmas that, less is more. But I have so many cute things and in order to decide what to use everything had to come out.


 
 
 Now what should I go with....hummm, Santas, sparkly garlands? Definitely my Merry Christmas sign in the kitchen window



...and this magnolia garland looks great on the mantle...

 
 A candy shop always is fun in the kitchen and a good excuse to use cloches...
 


A little sled full of packages would be great in the entry hall...but where could I put all of the snowmen, they are very cute too and what says Christmas better than Santas.


 
 It would be a shame not to hang this wreath in the family room...and so it goes. But I still don't quite know where to begin!
 
Thank you for visiting. I hope that your holiday decorating is going well...perhaps unlike me you are already done!

  2. I'm so happy you had a fun Thanksgiving! and now with all those wonderful Christmas goodies to play with I'm sure you little Miss Twiggy is deciding which ones are hers RIGHT NOW! That is SO CUTE! I remember the days of people putting their Christmas trees in playpens to keep their children safe, HAHAHA! I never had that problem with my boys. I'm looking forward to you finished pictures AND DO include your little precious Miss Twiggy too...

  3. You do have such pretty decorations! I don't see how you can chose?
    I am at about the same point as you, but hopeful by this weekend I'll get some thing together! Can't wait to see which ones you chose!

  4. Can't wait to see what you create! Isn't it nice to mix things up & put your decorations in new spots? we're "decorating lite" --- we won't have any company --- and would rather spend the time baking than decorating! Plus --- we (I) won't have to put away the decorations January 4th (which is the date I would probably chose for that task).
    So --- we'll enjoy your decorations --- Love to you & Miss Twiggley

    Hugs,
