Although I'm in denial that it's actually already December, we put up our Christmas tree and stockings today. We always buy a real Christmas tree.
As much as I love decorating I somehow missed the gene for Holiday decorating. I pretty much do the bare minimum. It may also have something to do with the fact that I hate to move. Something about packing up my normal accessories to bring out the Holiday ones reminds me of moving...and it's just no fun. I love to see other people's Holiday decorations and I admire those who make packages look like works of art. NOTE: My presents under the tree have no bows - not even the cheap store-bought ones.
Since my mantel isn't very inspirational, I'm sending you here to check out fabulous mantels on Layla's linky party. Enjoy!
