I have to admit I am enjoying the Christmas season this year!
I know...I know....it's NOT Christmas season yet....
But...it is to me!
My gift to me is I'm not living in the basement, and I have a house to decorate!
I told my Shug I wanted greenery on those porches, and it just happened to be on sale last Sunday.
I only did one little decorating thing....
Ok, I might have done two little things....but that is IT! And no one has noticed, so it's OK.
New Rule...it's ok to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving...IF no one notices.
This is on a shelf above my stove.
Besides a tiny bit of decorating, I've been going to a lot of Christmas open houses. It started out November 5, on a Saturday, with my cousin Vickie and her daughter Ashley. We had a time limit so we formed a plan, and there was no breaking that plan! No way No how!
First stop, Horton's of Tipton....
and I actually took a lot of pictures so you can see their decorating style.
Hortons is having another open house on Saturday December 3, with vendors.
So is my friend Patti Beck.
You should plan on going.
Then off to the IUK craft show...and would you believe the only picture I took was of Santa! This craft show is probably one of the best ones in Kokomo. They have three huge rooms FULL of vendors, plus two long hallways. They have door prizes and food and it's a lot of fun.
And Ashleeeeeee won a door prize (say in whiney voice)
After that we hurried (back-tracked, because someone didn't tell me where we were going, while I was driving by....AHEM....) to Teresa's Therapuetic Massage to sign up for something. I don't know what and I apparently didn't win! BUT, since it was in the same Plaza, we went to Junk-n-Java too. Junk N Java is a store with vendors that sell crafty-creative-and antique-type stuff. And coffee! Hence, Java.
After that, we hurried off to J. Edwards, which I showed you pictures of in a previous post, because I went there a couple of days earlier, but here is a refresher.
We did all of that with a little time to spare so we stopped at the GoodWill!!!! I was looking for a silver teapot, I had seen the day before, but I was lured into waiting until the next day. First Saturday of the month everything is 1/2 price at the GoodWill. Well someone snatched up the teapot, but they left this, which just might be cute on the table with greenery and Christmas ornaments.
(I hope I can find my Christmas decorations)
So now, I'm feeling a bit creative. See why I'm in the Christmas spirit!
How about you, has it hit yet?
Seriously...13 samples of chili.
Is that hot dogs in that one cup! I couldn't tell, but I'm thinking maybe it was!
