Yep I started already!!!! I decided to start my Christmas decorating early. My daughter does Thanksgiving so I usually can start the Christmas decor early. I also have a Charity Girlfriend Christmas Party at my house shortly after Thanksgiving so if I can get a jump on the decorating that helps alot. I just started so I am sure I will be changing some of this that you will see. I like to play around with things until I get them where I really like them. Here are some of the beginnings:)

My camera does not do this justice it really is so pretty at night lit up.  I used my old garden wagon this year to put my tree in.




I love angels and have them through out my Christmas decor.


A little bling for the door.

Can't have a farmhouse kitchen without a vintage little truck with a tree!!!!

Old theater seats from Jennifer Rizzo at the Flea Market last week end.  I am still looking for vintage throws to lay on the seats.

Love to add the cottage flowers with greenery on this old door in my entry way.

My dining room is coming together.  I still have to do the center piece for the table but I added some simple wreaths and tied ribbon on them to my chairs.  The two simple wreaths on the window are just that simple wreaths I got at Ikea and tired them with white ribbon.  I know it is kind of hard to see them with the way the light comes in that window.

A little bird nest Christmas bling.


I love this old window and it was fun to start to decorate it with Christmas.  The believe sign and greenery lights at night for a subtle glow.  You will have to take my word on this it really is pretty lite at night.


Old vintage skates with greenery


This is probably my favorite when I can just take a simple piece of greenery and make it cute with adding a little bird and some white ribbon to the chair.  Simple but makes a statement.

Again I need to take a professional photography class and get a better camera but I think you can get the idea.  These vintage angels are stuffed with white lights and at night they look really pretty.


This is the mantel during the day.  I love those vintage angels.
I have just begun and I will probably be switching some of this up but I thought I would share with you what I have started.  I hope this gets some of you in the mood to start to decorate early.

    1. Hi Cindy,
      Thanks so much for all your nice comments on my decorating. I am still goofing with it but am liking the way it is coming out. I did paint my light fixture I just did not like the dark. I am going to put a burlap and flower design on the jars and will post that soon. Good luck with your Christmas Show.

  4. Don't worry you are not the only one, I have one tree started in the basement and I hope to have the three in the kids room done this weekend. I have to tell you I just love, love, love how you have decorated. I would like to go all white but I do the main family tree in all different colored ornaments. I even tried colored lights on the basement tree, but I just can't do it, I had to take the colored ones off and go all white. Enjoy getting ready for the holidays!

    1. Hi and thanks for coming by. I got that little truck at Hobby Lobby and just painted it. I have searched for a truck like that and have not been able to find one so I just painted this one and I think it came out cute. So if you have a Hobby Lobby near you they have all sizes of this kind of truck. I taped off the wheels and then just spray painted it. It was easy peasy. Good luck.

  24. Your wonderful decorations make me question my decision for simplicity this year. We go away for a family trip every year for Christmas and each year I decorate less and less so the dog sitter won't have clutter. I think I might rescind my decision this year.
