Are you like me and today, the day after Thanksgiving, is the day you get busy with Christmas decorating?  All of the boxes have been brought in from the storage closet and down from the attic, so it's on!  I've been looking for some new inspiration for decorating this year and found some great ideas...take a peek at these!

I love this one.  A tray, glass container, ornaments & some simple!  Oh, and some ribbon too!

Such sparkle!  A bowl, candles, silver garland and ornaments = beautiful!

Isn't this sweet!  Decorating for Christmas doesn't have to be expensive!

(all above
 So cute...just goes to show that anything goes!  Go ahead, light up a bicycle!

Decorating for Christmas will keep us very busy and is a lot of fun, but it can also be stressful!
Today, as I begin this busy day of decorating, I will be mindful of the true meaning of this beautiful season.  Remembering that it isn't about fresh cut Christmas trees, sparkly ornaments, and reindeer...though each of these is ours to enjoy! Christmas is the time to remember and celebrate the miraculous birth of the babe in a manger, who was born to give us life and to be thankful for how very blessed we are!

So sweet today your "it's on" day?  Love your comments, they make my day!

Enter my blogaversary giveaway...

    I am also having a giveaway so please feel free to follow and comment for a chance at some jewelry.

  4. Beautiful pictures Cindy! I usually decorate today, but with both kids away at college and coming home next week, I think I'll wait this year. It's strange to change my ways. :)

  8. Time to switch for Happy Thanksgiving to Merry Christmas! We've started Christmas decorations- barely. But we will catch up!

  9. My mantel is decorated and the outdoor lights are up. We started last weekend, then I had to stop to begin cooking for Thanksgiving. I'll resume tomorrow. Those were some great inspirational photos.
