{a blue christmas}

Having such fun sifting through boxes of Christmas ornaments and sentimental things . . .

{Do you go all-out with holiday decorating, and if yes, how soon do you begin?}

Icy Christmas Blue. Wonderful.

I do go all out for Christmas. Everything appears the weekend after Thanksgiving and disappears on New Years Day.

Love these pictures. Day after Thanksgiving I was decorating and that weekend we got our tree. My husband actually thinks our living room looks better with the tree so he wants to keep it year round. ;-) haha

i love that last photo, that dog would be so cuddly to snuggle up to! and my family is pretty adamant about holiday decorating. we usually start the weekend after thanksgiving-this year we've already decorated the mantle with our nutcracker collection and hung up gold and red lights outside :)

My mom goes nuts at Christmas-time. She brings out the decorations on 1 December and there is literally not a room or a surface that is not red, green or twinkly. I love it. :)

Pretty pictures! My house won't have even one Christmas decoration - I'm going to Mom's and she's already done. Her house feels like Christmas to me. :)

This is really the first year that I have truly been this into decorating for Christmas. I couldn't wait to get home from TGiving vacation to break out the tree and trimmings.

I love the colors in that last image...beautiful!

Hey my BFF...sorry I have been so absent...we've been out of town this week. Just wanted to pop in and say how lovely your blog is looking! Good to hear you are decorating already for the holidays!! I've only done a couple of little projects with the kids. Can't decide if I will do any more due to the move!

I can't say I "go all out" with the decorating but I do decorate the internal space of my home. When I was young, we used to decorate on Christmas Eve but now that everyone is older, I may decorate the house a week or so earlier.

What dreamy images! If my daughter had her way we would have started decorating on October 1st. We held her off until the day after Thanksgiving. By Christmas, the entire house will be transformed...
