Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Traditionally I decorate my house for Christmas the weekend after Thanksgiving.
I believe this is because that is when my Mom decorated our house when I was growing up.
The weekend after Thanksgiving starts deer season and so my Dad and brothers would all leave for the week to go hunt.
This left my Mom and her daughters home to pull out all of the decorations and get it done in peace without all of the boys around.

My sister Debbie was always the most excited and we used to joke that if we sat still we would find ourselves covered in Tinsel or wrapped in garland......she decorated anything that didn't move.
Debbie was always an easy target for teasing and still is......sorry Debbie!

I am sincerely lacking the holiday spirit this year.
But my house is not.
Its all decorated and I would like to share it with all of you.

A christmas tree made from books.......what did you expect?

Our traditional tree decorated with Victorian Style ornaments.

The Mom Cave is already for the holidays

 Foyer red christmas balls and red books a pop of color.

The Santa room

My Favorite Aunt ....Aunt Stella helped me make this Santa. She was an incredible artist and I miss her.

My newly started Santa collection.

Edgar.....the elf.....you know because of the hat.

The snow man tree

Well thats all I have for today.....I hope you enjoyed my decorations.

Have a wonderful Tuesday.

The tree made of books is awesome!

My house has a tree in it. Just a tree. It's green.

Very impressive! You are soooo organised (I have just finished my Xmas tree).
I find the run-up to Xmas a very stressful time. I am eagerly waiting for a nice break...

I am all for holiday cheer, even though I am lacking it thus far, but the santa is just plain creepy. I do dig the elfoyle.
