Well it is just days before Halloween and on tons of my favourite blogs Halloween holiday decor ideas abound. But something decidedly unseasonal is creeping into my house....Christmas!
Maybe it is because we have never owned our own place before, or because we've never had a place we could actually put a Christmas tree in. Whatever the reason, I'm already super excited about Christmas this year.
Much like I worked my fall decor into my space by painting my pumpkins antique white, lots of our Christmas decor is silver and white and will work into the space in a subtle way (I hope!). This year, I'm also adding another colour we have a lot of in our living room... blue!
Here is a sneak peak at some of the things I've got in store that were purchased recently at Home Sense. I am going back for a few more things I've had my eye on tomorrow. I find that if I wait, the good stuff at discount stores is gone, and I get too tempted to shop at stores I can't really afford...
Can't wait to show you our place all decorated in December!
(or maybe November - we'll see how long I hold out)
A dangerous precedent is being set here, too. I didn't know where to store the new Christmas stuff, and stuck it in the guest bath (hidden by the curtain) when we had company over. That was over a week ago, and it hasn't moved. I have to resist the urge to make the bath tub my new storage unit...
Ok, back to Halloween!!!
