Christmas is coming…

I spent the weekend mulling through all my Christmas books…..hmmmm, I did this in July also…….you know where you copy all the projects your going to make this year, the mountains of cookies your going to bake, the long lines at the mall you will never have to stand on again!….

                                          ……sigh….I knew you would understand…….

well, I have 146 projects started, 75 cookie recipes highlighted and 22 dinner menu’s for Christmas Eve……..

Christmas Eve is huge in our home…..we have open house and usually thirty-forty people come and go……I love it……its my holiday…….I live for this all year!

I usually do a theme for that night…..this year I’m thinking “Country”…..with wagons and old toys and snow covered trees! Yup, Down Home Country this year….

But then I found these images on Pinterest……..I am so undecided now! HELP!

I am thinking this on a very small scale…..really  small scale..

.a miniature tree in every window! I usually do candles…but wouldn’t this look beautiful? what do you think? Too much?

Now this is perfect isn’t it? I bet they don’t have three four-legged munchkins running under this tree!

This looks exactly like my four-posted bed! But the rest of this room is …sigh….finished!

This table setting is just beautiful…..simple…yet classy…..

 See how off track I get!

……..the mind is all filled with sugarplums and tinsel……Christmas carols and gingerbread……..and all those projects sitting…..

 and waiting…..

……and waiting……

What projects do you have on the front burner?

  1. Love all the pics!! Christmas is always the most wonderful time of year at your house 🙂

  2. This looks like a bone in every pot and a horse in whose stable. I think I would settle on a tiny tree in every window because the builder husband would not be happy building a stable!
