It’s Beginning to Look A Lot like Christmas

It’s beginning to look like Christmas around the homestead.  I like to wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas.  Here is a peek inside our home as we begin decorating.  Please remember I’m not a photographer and it is late at night.  I probably should have waited for daylight to help make the pictures brighter. 

Above- Oh Holy Night Aqua Sign (link below to download)
Below- Gold and Bronze Christmas tree

The tree kind of looks like a hot mess in the photo but it really looks nice in real life.  

 The table is decorated with plates I purchased for my mother many years ago.  She spends Christmas in Heaven now.  I love using the dishes and it reminds me of her.  I added a picture card to each place setting.  You can print these too.  Instead of printing them 8×10, I printed 4 to a page and they are just the perfect size for the table.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas pillow was snagged at TJ Maxx – one of my favorite stores.
I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas sign was found last Christmas at Home Goods- another favorite store.

My kitchen window of snowmen.  I love snowmen.  I have a collection of them and they always go in my kitchen window until the end of January.  By then, I have had enough of the cold and don’t want to look at anything that reminds me of winter.  The burlap Be Merry sign appears orange in the photo but it’s because my ink is running low in the printer.  Hey, this is real life!  It happens to us all. 

Hope you have enjoyed a glimpse into my “home” life.  We could all use a break from the workplace, as well as, deviating from “education & academic topics” every now and then.
