Yesterday was the 25th of October. I know. Two whole months away from Christmas. But, what am I thinking about with this cooler weather, besides egg nog? Christmas trees and decorations. I went to shop for a Christmas tree last week and came home with this tree instead:
I wish I had taken a picture of it with the lights off. It's very pretty on or off. But, it is not a Christmas tree.
I couldn't budget a $150+ concolor tree last year, so this is what I did for Christmas 2008 at my house:
It was good for a year. But, I long for something different this year. What I want is a brown tree. I don't know why. But, I do. But, when you can't find a brown Christmas tree at the World Trade Center or Dallas Market, it's probably not going to easily be found, let me tell ya.
So, with the advent of white on white on white in home decor, here is my question to you. Do you change your Christmas decorating scheme occasionally? Or do you do what your mother and her mother before her did, year after year, with your own personal slant?
When you come shopping at Primitiques in Poetry and at Winnie & Tulula's in Athens, what would you like to see for your home Christmas decor?
The Friday and Saturday following Thanksgiving, which are November 27 and 28, Winnie & Tulula's is having a wonderful Christmas Open House. Friday evening, 4-9pm admission will be $5 and proceeds will go to a special cause. Saturday hours will be 10 am - 6 pm. All of the dealers are doing some special shopping for this occasion and you are sure to be WOW'd!
And as if that weren't enough to get you all excited, Saturday, December 5, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, we will host a Christmas Open House at Primitiques in Poetry. Need an excuse to discover Poetry? Well, here it is!
Get your pen out and mark your calendars. What better time to come out and play with your fellow bloggers?
Do you see why I was asking about your Christmas decor taste now? I need to stock up on what you like. Or, maybe I'll just stock up and surprise you with what I think you'll like. And you'll LOVE it! Hmmmm...
