I'm getting in the spirit of Christmas today! My plans include getting my stuff out of storage, looking to see what theme I'll go with this year and get at it. I always like to change things up. I'll use some old favorites and create some new things. Today is a beautiful, sunny, dry day with highs in the 60's...which is actually COLD for Houston. That maybe what's also pushing me towards Christmas decorating. I won't be home for Thanksgiving so my Halloween/Fall decorations have carried me through November.
A few years ago I used mostly green (not actually Christmas dark green) but the fun, funky almost lime green on my tree. However, those didn't show up as well as I had anticipated so today I'm going to look and see what I can do about changing them up some....hmmm....maybe red polka dots on a green ball. I also have a lot of Radko-esque ornaments that are very classic. I guess I see what way my creative wind blows when I start to look over my storage boxes.

Christmas In My "Hood"
This is a picture of my mantel in the dining room. It's a see through fireplace
that looks into the living room . I have a large colletion of Santa Claus' and now have started collecting snowmen. One reason, is they are just so darned cute, but I can also leave the snowmen out through the winter months.
