Friday Favorites

I love things with a fleur de lis symbol on them. I don't know what it means, I just think it's really pretty!





I have to admit that I have kind of started decorating for Christmas. I brought down 2 of my trees out of the attic so I'd have more room to go through my boxes and start organizing and planning what I'm going to put where. I don't decorate the same way every year. I move things around and try to be somewhat creative. I put this tree in my foyer and am going to put fleur de lis and probably some toile ornaments on it. I bought these gold ornaments for $1 (half off at Hobby Lobby), painted them red, and put a black and white checked ribbon on for a hanger. I am still trying to figure out how I'm going to make the toile ornaments. I have some ideas. You know you'll see whatever I come up with, but only if measures up to my cute quotient. I am going to a Crop Night (scrapbooking) tonight so I'm excited and I'm sure my mom and I will check out some yard sales tomorrow morning. Hope y'all have a super weekend!

Oh I can't wait to start seeing Christmas decorations,I have six trees that I decorate, if I had the room I'd have 10. LOL. I collect Santas and a lot of them are mechanical and demand a lot of room,so I almost have to put things where I usually put them. But, I love getting them out of the attic. I can hardly wait.

Hugs,
Chris

I love that! I am a huge fan of those things (I'm not going to attempt to spell that without spell check...)
I am not decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving! My husband is pestering me, but I want pumpkins still!

That red painted fleur de lis is so cute. Love it. I'm afraid to get stuff out too early because I'm gonna get sick of it too soon. Plus I've got Thanksgiving at my house this year. Your living room looks warm and cozy. Mimi
