    Christmas decorating anyone? - pic heavy

    I pretty much ignored Halloween decorating this year and moved straight to Christmas. I started on Tuesday. I put up a small table-top tree, I started decorating my mantel, and put a ceramic snowman by the door. I am working on a Christmas table runner for my dining room table, and I am going to make a furry white drape type thing for the mantel so that it looks like snow. I have quite a bit more to do, but this is a start. Anyone else feeling the Christmas spirit yet?

    You have a real good start on your decorating...love the little tree! I do a kitchen tree that's about 18" tall and tie miniature kitchen items and small cookie cutters on the tree with tiny red bows. I have a star cookie cutter that goes on the top. For a tree skirt I use a paper flour sack that's cut open and flared out. Some years I make a garland out of Fruit Loops or Cheerios...it's fun. Thanks for sharing your pictures - it makes me want to listen to Christmas carols!

      Not yet, is it Dec.21 yet? Except I do have my Christmas lights up, because I pay someone to do it, and I got a lower price for letting him do them early.

        Bubby, I love your kitchen tree idea. I am going to have to steal that. I just have to figure out where I'm gonna put it.

          And a guardian angel always near.

            I don't decorate until the weekend after Thanksgiving. I don't like to forget that holiday. But then it's all out decorating! I'm hoping because I'm not working, that I will be able to get it all done by the Saturday or Sunday this year. I did apply for a job at Joann's, so if that comes through, I will have to work so we'll see.
            I love what you've started and would really like to see more when you get them up. Always looking for new ideas!

              I run a retail shop. It is all decked out for the holidays and we're playing some holiday music (50/50 mix of holiday and easy listening). Seeing the store transformed has helped inspire me to get an early start. Also, as the shop gets busier and I get more tired, I won't feel like decorating. That's why I decided to get an early start. Basically, it's now or never. I'm planning on really doing as much as I can because this is my first Christmas as a home-owner and I really want to start creating memories in my house.

                I love Christmas, it's my favourite holiday I don't decorate until my birthday though, December 2nd. DH would love it if I waited until Christmas Eve and took it down on Boxing day... Grinch... lol Here in Newfoundland, it's actually disrespectful to decorate before Remembrance Day (November 11th), not sure about the rest of Canada though

                  Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone. . . Not your housework!!

                    Too early for me...I'd be tired of Christmas by Thanksgiving. I usually wait until about the 2nd week-end in December.

                      Dee is right. Nothing before Remembrance Day. My hubby is a bit of a grinch too.

                        I love Christmas and winter in general
                        I can't wait for solid snow, it was snowing a bit last weekend but it melted for All Saints' Day which was rainy in Cracow :/

                        But we feel the spirit already here... husband bought some Christmas mix music and I ordered some pretty Christmas fabrics Can't wait to get them

                            I wait until after Thanksgiving....I don't decorate a lot so it doesn't take long to do it.

                              I wait until the day after Thanksgiving. Normally my daughter and I do it together as a special time together, but she has now moved away so I'm on my own this year. I'm not really looking forward to it without her.
