If you’re visiting from Susan’s blog “Rooms that Work” – Welcome!
It’s a Holiday Inspiration blog party and DesignTies is participating!! Why not participate yourself? Just head to Susan’s place :-)
I hope you enjoy the images I’ve pulled together (below).
While you’re here, be sure to enter our giveaway – we’re giving away a Christmas gift mystery prize!! How do you enter? You’ll find all the information you need HERE… but it’s simple, really. Just read my blog partner Kelly’s post “Compromise sucks, but you do what you gotta do” and guess which paint colour she and her husband have decided on for her kitchen cabinets. Everyone who chooses the correct colour will be entered in a random draw for the mystery prize!!
Maybe that person will be you!! Be sure to enter!!
Now… a little Holiday Inspiration!
I have so much homework to do!!
Yet all I can think about on this sleepy Sunday – apart from Patti’s bathroom remodel and ALL THE THINGS I have to do before we start demolition next Thursday!!!! – is Christmas decorating! Twinkling lights, wreaths for the doors, stars, bells & sparkly ornaments along with my much-loved heirloom fruit garland in the tree, boughs and bows on the mantle, and beautiful angels everywhere… I love decorating for Christmas!
HAHA! Okay… not like this!
This was how we spent the first Christmas in our little house. We’d started the remodel of our fireplace (I’d tiled), but we were waiting for the millworker to deliver our beautiful mantle.
Hey! I TRIED to decorate!! :-)
Last year was so much better, don’t-cha think?!!
What a trooper my guy is! Of course I only had the use of my handy man until 3:00pm because that’s when the Grey Cup game started. For our non-Canadian readers, the Grey Cup is the Super Bowl of Canada; the two best CFL football teams vying for the ultimate prize!! Our favourite team didn’t make it to the big game, so we’re rooting for Saskatchewan… Go Green!! Go RoughRiders!!
Enough football. My guy’s pass-times are taking over my life!!
But that’s okay - ‘cause my love of home remodelling is taking over HIS life!! Poor man!
Let’s get back to the topic at hand… and NO I don’t mean my homework!!
Over the last week so many of my favourite blogs have been posting beautifully and festively decorated homes. No wonder the idea of creating some holiday spirit in MY home is so prevalent in my mind!! I won’t be pulling the decorations down from the attic until next weekend, but I can temporarily avoid my homework by sharing some wonderful photos I found that are influencing some of my decorating plans…
So… Have you started your Holiday decorating yet?
Getting back to my homework now… really!!
