Let the Christmas Decorating Begin!

Hey Y'all! Hope 
everyone had a wonderful 
Thanksgiving and bought
lots of Black Friday goodies - 
I know I did... right from
my lap top and comfy couch,
still in my PJs,
sipping on my hot coffee ;-)
I've braved a few
CRAZY Black Friday shopping
ordeals to know NOTHING
is worth all that craziness!

I know some - MOST - of you are
way ahead of me on Christmas decorating.
So this is my first Santa up
for this season, a $2 thrifted
Santa and a $1 candle tin
filled with green potpourri,
a nice and simple decorating start...
On to the tree, and now I find that
only ONE strand of Christmas tree lights
work, so now I'll HAVE to go
to town to get some new 
white lights - IF any are left!
Keep your fingers crossed!

  1. I didn't shop yesterday either. Actually had to work. But even if I was off no way I'd brave the crowds!

    I haven't started my Christmas decorating yet. But I'm getting ideas for what I want to do and trying to plan out some crafts :)

  2. No black friday for me either. I don't do crowds well at all. You did it the right way. It is that time for the tree. I'm a little slow.

  3. We also opted out of Black Friday shopping. But, we do have all gifts bought and wrapped. Our tree is also up, and in a sec I will hang the wreath :)

  4. I stay away from crowds and shopping, too! I love your Santa. I'm taking a few weeks off from posting on my blog but I'll be by to visit with you (husband is sick). Hope you find your Christmas tree lights at the store.

  6. It's such a busy time of year, it seems we jump from one holiday to the next. With a few birthdays in there that I have to bake for also, I'm never sure how I get it all done.

  7. Your a little bit ahead of me - No Santa's yet. We did put up a tree before we decided to take a train trip to see my daughter for Christmas. We aren't going to put the ornaments on, so you are sooooo ahead of me, right? Have fun decorating!

    1. Thanks Ann, going to "brave" it later this afternoon - I love those new bigger LED lights but they're much more expensive - oh well. We'll see - thanks so much for visiting!

  9. How cute! I just had Sam drag down all of my boxes of decorations from the attic...and I have to work the next 3 days in a row!! It's killing me to look at those boxes and not be able to dig right into them yet!

    1. LOL, I know, it's killing me looking at a bare tree just begging to be lit! But it'll be there waiting on you ;-) Have a great day!
