Getting a head start.....

 Thanksgiving was wonderful. I didn't take pictures. I think I was on strike or some such thing. However, I will do a recap soon. I gained 5 pounds just from the potatoes and the dessert. Yesterday we started the decorating. I know it seems early but when one has a blog, holidays are perfect subjects. I am determined this year to shop the house and try to use what I have.

On the coffee table, I started with a shawl from Chico's that I have had for a couple of years. I have collected PB Mercury for a few years and I arranged some on top. I have a glass container from PB which I filled with ornaments.

I even found candles - you know the pretty ones that you hesitate to burn. This year they will be lit.

The sofa table by the stairs has a simple arrangement. The Vietri plate makes a nice background for the angel, I think. 

I started the Welsh cupboard but we need to get some boxes out of the attic before I can finish that job.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and that this Holiday Season brings good tidings for you and yours.

Still a bit early for me to get the decorations from the loft. Two of my neighbours over the road already have Christmas lights on outside their houses!
Love your baubles in the glass dish, I did something like that last year, very stylish. Pleased to hear you had a good time on Thanksgiving day. Take care,love Jackie in Surrey UK.

Ah, you've started already! I can't bring myself to start this early. I love the mercury glass, Carol- it's very pretty and perfect for Christmas.

It looks so pretty, Carol. It's nice to do the decorating in bits and pieces..I find when it has time to settle and I look at what is done, more inspiration comes for what is yet to be decorated. Oh dear to the potatoes!! :-)
