I just received the Pottery Barn "Welcome the Holidays" catalog and
now I am dreaming of Christmas. Friday is Halloween and you
would think that I would be focusing on fall and Thanksgiving, but
instead I am crushing on Christmas decorations.
I want to really go all out this year because we are planning two big
parties and frankly, any excuse to decorate is a good one for me.
One good thing about being a blogger is that I always have pictures
from the previous year. It gives me a chance to say ~ "oh I like that" or
"won't do that again".
I love to add little touches to every room.
Yet some years after the holiday is over I think that the following
year I will keep it really simple. I hate packing everything back up
again. So far that has never happened. Once I open the first box
of Christmas decorations the flood gates open and good intentions
fly right out of the window!
Everything ends up being decorated. Inside, outside, all the porches.
I just can't seem to help myself.
Do you remember the year I made the Sun Valley ski cloche?
I used a big outdoor lantern from Pottery Barn. Unfortunately
I left that lantern up in storage in Idaho.
Do any of you remember when I created the Christmas in Texas
theme on my front porch back in Idaho? Little did I know then
that we would actually end up back here. I must be psychic ;-)
Thanksgiving comes late this year. So now I am wondering,
do I start decorating early and go big? Or do I keep it
to a minimum this year?
Well I will just wait a bit and see how inspired I become.
Okay Bentley ~ you and I have goofed off long enough.
Let's get outside and wash some windows before it gets
too hot again.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
