I have noticed that if I wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas I feel as if I am behind. But if I start before Thanksgiving I feel that it is too early. So I’m left with a 24 hour window the day after Thanksgiving (when I’m still doing dishes)that the timing feels right. But first I have to look at all the blogs to get inspiration. Oh well, I have managed to decorate a few areas since Thanksgiving and I thought I would share some of my vignettes.
I was outside clipping holly and doing a few other chores and this little scene just happened.
Today it is in the mid-50s here so it’s a good day to do some outside decorating.
These reindeer were brass when I found them at a thrift store. I spray painted them silver but I would love them either way. They are some of my favorite decorations to bring out.
Another of my vintage finds was this little caroling Santa. I am sure he was part of a set but somehow he became separated. I gave him a setting with the tree and snow (of kosher salt).
Something about these miniature trees is magical to me. Every year I add a few more to my stash.
I’m still working on a few areas of the house. But it’s starting to feel like Christmas around here.
