Time flies!

I cannot believe that November is already half over!  And really the Christmas season is in full swing!  I don't do much decorating like I used to, but I still like to add some gaiety to the house after all we are celebrating Christ's Birthday! 

I still have the Fall deco up and it will stay up until the last day of November (don't ask me why, but that's the day I always do it).  But here are some things I've done in previous years:

Love this teapot, got it from Ross a few years ago along with some platters and creamer, all with scriptures on them.
 

My favorite Snowman that gets a place of honor in the living room  :-)


Outdoor Apple topiary, I have 2 that I got a few years go from Target, they are by Smith & Hawken, love their stuff!

The "Hope" ornament is one of my favorites, first thing to see when you enter the house.


One year (2011) I used the colors green and gold, so I used all my green glass.
 
 
Can't forget a snack for Santa ("Santa" meaning any hungry person that gets this first!)  lol


I hope that you enjoy your time of decorating for the Christmas season! Treasure and savor every moment, whether you are alone or with family!  Jesus IS the Reason for the Season!

Hello, Veronica! Thank you for visiting my blog & taking the time to leave a comment.

I have been retired for 5 years, and I love it! Sometimes I do miss teaching, but absolutely have not regrets. My days are filled with blogging, grandkids, decorating for the seasons, cooking, or just relaxing.

I'm thinking ahead to the Christmas season, but I won't start decorating until Thanksgiving evening.

Smiles,
Carol

Hi Veronica! I love all of your sweet Christmasy things. We usually start decorating for Christmas right after the Thanksgiving dishes are done! ;) Thanks for popping in to see my little Tilda doll!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
