It’s Christmas in July…

Please don’t think I’ve gone bonkers.  But today I’m posting a few photos from last Christmas because apparently there’s a big Christmas party going on right now.

Well, at least in the bloggersphere.

My friend Debbie over at Confessions of a Plate Addict has organized it with several other creative bloggers, so if you’re in the mood for some early Christmas inspiration, it’s the place to go.

In the meantime, if you’d like to see more of my white wonderland tablescape above and you’re curious how

I used this cheap bag of snow

to transform my dining room into this, you can click on My White Winter Wonderland tutorial.


Or you can learn how I transformed my Christmas chandelier

for a New Year’s party

Or… if you’re in the mood for more traditional Christmas colors, you can check out my

Red and White and Black Christmas table here.


If you’ve visited here before, you already know that I love this kind of decorating. I absolutely love those tingling feelings I get whenever my creative juices get going, but the best part is when I can share my ideas. Really.

My decorating philosophy is, “If I can do it, anyone can…” so feel free to ask questions.

Or just say “Hi”…

in the meantime, I’m linking up here


Bye for now,

Thanks for the cool breeze coming off your beautiful's hot here and I for one look forward to the cooler days to come. Love your blog! Came to you via the made in a day blog hop. Have to comment on your panty hose post...anyone writing about it has a new loyal follower. Women of a certain age do not, often anyway, in my opinion have the legs to pull off a winter evening out sans leg covering....I know I don't....between the train tracks that run up and down, the cellulite, the dryness and chalkiness, no. It should not be attempted. I am not alone. And when did Pantyhose become such a no no? A better question is WHY? I hope you will visit me on the farm at and bring your answer with you!
