It's Official!

It's official....

what you may ask...hmmm...the last official day of fall to me! Once Halloween is passed....Christmas season is full fledge for me...I have had to make a promise to hubby to AT LEAST wait until after Halloween to publically listen to Christmas music....Christmas movies...Christmas decor...YEP...I sure do....{I'm jumping up and down right now I'm soooo excited} I'm really the one who already starts to listen to the Christmas music station...and my FAVORITE movie late at night to watch....is Miracle on 34th Street....both old and new versions...something my sister and I started when we were kiddos....

Now I can start brainwashing my kiddos since my oldest is getting old enough to really take an interest now...YES...hubby has no chance when it comes to Christmastime...and I LOVE IT! I've already perused some of the stores we have been to just to get ideas since we have agreed I can add one BIGGER Christmas item each year...this year I'm thinking several small items...because I haven't really found or needed ANY bigger items this year....
Well just maybe after these pictures I have...one day I would LOVE to get a 2nd tree I can just decorate...I always promised hubby to keep a family ornament tree...things we have had...I would be in BIG trouble if Star Wars ornaments couldn't be put out you know...but someday...I want a tree with ornaments like this I can just put on there....
Love those old clock faces...LOVE IT!
And it wouldn't be our home if blue wasn't added somewhere...having a tree like on a little table or buffet...would just be beautiful!

And there is something about slipcovered chairs I just find so warm and cozy...and this is my FAV color...and different size trees grouped together...I LOVE things in multiples...Look out family....I just got inspiration for my Christmas presents this year:)...because Starfish and white ornaments make my day ANY day!I can picture my table like this....or this....with mismatched chairs....Oh...and if my bedroom looked like this at Christmastime...oh that would be soo beautiful...and I just might be able to keep it clean and laundry off of the floor...oh WOW...{yes...our bedroom and my purse are 2 things I struggle keeping organized and clean...just those 2 things....:)}

Are you all ready for Christmas because I sure am?!?!?!...

What fun to think about Christmas already. I agree about having 2 trees. I think I'm almost ready for an "all penguin" tree at our house. :) Good luck getting rid of Star Wars- that cracked me up!

Yay!!!

Normally I'm a wait-till-after-thanksgiving kind of girl. But this year I can't WAIT to get my holiday stuff out. It will start next week. :)

okay! I LOVE your style of christmas photos! And I LOVE the packaging with the starfish! But I promised my hubby that I would NOT decorate before the Wed. before Thanksgiving. And I told him to hold me accountable.

my hubby slept in yesterday while i was busily putting away all things orange. it was all i could do to not open christmas decor boxes....sigh.
he did wake up & laugh that all evidence ( even the candy is hidden) of halloween is gone.
christmas season
bring it on!
i love your photos!!

That is so funny. I just read Lissa's comment and I saved the starfish wrapping just to send to her!! I can't wait to decorate either but I do wait until the Thanksgiving meal is over and then I can not be stopped. Gorgeous photos.
