Almost Christmas!

Just wanted to share a few photos of my Christmas decorations. I wasn't going to do a lot since I won't be here but I had to......I am a pushover for the holidays!
Most of what I have out was collected over the summer at the flea markets, yard sales, Salvation Army, etc. I spent very, very little and I think it all came together pretty well.
I just didn't feel like dragging all the family mementos out this year. My Mom passed away this year, my daughter is only going to be here a couple of days before and after Christmas and the BF is going to be working. I will go to Arkansas with my daughter to see family so I just used what I had stored around here throughout the summer. I kinda' like it.......sort of glitzy and glammy and VERY holiday-ish!

Enjoy!

I have a few other things tucked here and there but those are the major spots....a lot of fussy girly stuff but truly me and my tastes. Can you tell I love pink?! No way........LOL.


There will be many moans and groans when I have to put it all away but for now, I am really enjoying "playing house" and I am truly blessed!

Let's all remember The Reason for The Season!

Blessings to all...............

I know, I know.
I really wasn't going to "put much up"........but one thing led to another and another........and well, I made myself stop. I usually have a tree in every single room, but not this year. If I were going to be here, I probably would. I got my love for Christmas and decorating from my dear Mom and I tend to collect and put out way too much......I grumble every year when I put it away. So, this year, I started boxes for my daughter. In addition to her yearly ornaments I have collected for her, she will have "all the trimmings" to use. I am paring down......even though it does not look like it. My biggest problem is passing up the lovely things I find on bargain....almost my whole porch is decorated with stuff I got at the Salvation Army.....two huge boxes for only $2.00 each! *I*couldn't*resist!*

Oh, thank you, Mrs. Darling. I do love my home but it is a challenge. As for the "moans and groans", can you hear me now? I am hoping to get started on the disassembling tomorrow. I love putting up, HATE taking down! I look at the pictures and am amazed that only two people have acquired nearly all of this "stuff" in two years. Yikes, I need to stay away from the many flea markets and yard sales here but I am a sucker for a bargain! (for example, the two pink velvet chairs were snagged, NEW, for only $30.00 for the pair!) Thanks for visiting!
