Christmas Decorating BEGINS!! SNEAK PEAK

Has anyone else started decorating for Christmas? I love having the tree up for Thanksgiving. It makes the house so much more cozier for the turkey dinner. I don't know what it is about lights but the dogs had a blast watching me decorate. I have stuck Velvets bed underneath the tree this year and she hasn't moved an inch! (this is a good thing)

Don't ask me why but I LOVE MAKING VIDEOS! Jim isn't the best producer/interviewer, he even zoomed over the christmas MESS I had made on the dining room table, but that's ok.


Here is the finished product. I can't believe mom found these in the TRASH. She has 5 more, I was lucky to get 2.

This year I wanted to do something different. I usually have the same thing over and over each year and I was bored with it. This year instead of the red, silver, and gold I did the formal living and dining room ALL in GOLD. So far I love it.

I found these mirrored gold picks for $0.75 2 years ago at OOPS in AR. Does anyone have Oops? I'm guessing there is only one. If anyone lives close to Oops, YOU HAVE TO GO!

I'm placing these gold leaf picks in my stemless wine glasses for the dining table. You can find them at Michael's for 50 cents!

GORGEOUS! You are so talented! I can't believe I've never asked this before - but do you do this for a living? If not, you should.

I love the stemless wine glasses! I put up almost all of my Christmas decorations this past weekend, probably the earliest I ever have, but I love it! I went different with my tree this year and also did mostly GOLD-i really love it!

Bear his a baby "HE" He isn't a baby :( He's 12 years old :( I'm sure your dog will stop teething soon. My mom has a puppy and she has been eating everything! Including some of her wall in the garage :) She is finally starting to settle down. Hopefully you post your Christmas decor, I'm dying to see everyones :) Have a great thanksgiving!
