It is no secret that Christmas is the one and only holiday for which I go ALL OUT. When early December rolls around, the boxes come out of the attic and it is on. 🙂

The goal each year is to look at what we have with fresh eyes (try it –  it’s like shopping your own stuff) and rarely do items end up in the same location from year to year (‘cuz that would be boring now wouldn’t it? 😉 )

Don’t believe me? Well, you can check out the 2010 and 2011 line-ups to see what I’m talking about. If I do say so myself, I think I just may have out-done myself this year. So, grab a glass of eggnog and turn up your favorite holiday music (Trans Siberian Orchestra is playing here) and enjoy the tour! 🙂

Hard to believe another Christmas come and gone. Sigh.

I always find the week after New Year’s to be a little sad since I know the time is near to take down the garlands, box up the ornaments and lights and put away all the dressings of the season.

But before we do, let’s make the magic last a wee bit longer with a tour of this year’s holiday decorations. I guess you could say my style is traditional with just a bit of whimsy for the part of me that refuses to grow up! Enjoy! 🙂

Uh oh, for all you naughty ones out there, Santa’s watching and he doesn’t look happy! 😉
