Decorating for Christmas

As soon as the Thanksgiving dishes are put away, decorating for Christmas in my house begins.  Since I worked at the Carriage House Antiques on Friday, I started as soon as I got home.  I just love to bring out the vintage ornaments where I am always in awe of their beauty.  Vintage Santa and elves are my favorite.  I put up my 3 vintage tinsel silver trees where each have a theme.  The smallest one is for Santa only.  One is for vintage figures that I purchased on my treasure hunts this year and the other one is for vintage ball ornaments that I also purchased sometime this year on my treasure hunts.  I did bring out some old favorites.  I had to!

I like to set up the vintage decorations first before I set up the tree.  It's nice to spend time on each so that I can savor the moment.  We will probably put up the tree this weekend.  We usually put up a real tree.  We don't go far.  Usually just to Menards where they have a nice selection for a good price.  It has become our tradition.

Enjoy making memories this holiday season!
