So it's my absolute most favorite time of the year not only because December is the same month for both my birthday and my Mom's birthday but it's also Christmas! I love decorating for the holidays ever since I worked for a big florist/greenhouse back in the Hamptons on Long Island - I have never lost that talent and nor have I gotten rid of much of the decorations I have collected over the last 20 plus years - the attic is busting at the seems with boxes and boxes of decorations I could probably decorate the whole neighborhood and still have some things left over. I guess I'm saving them all for that one day we buy a much larger house with many rooms and high ceilings. I can dream! Well - I did a little decorating this year even though we just got back from spending Thanksgiving in Tunica, MS with a little casino action and a very disappointing eating experience at the new Paula Deen buffet at Harrah's casino, and then we are leaving on December 23rd for a week and half to New Mexico to visit my mom and stepdad and I get to play with her new long arm she bought over the summer! Enjoy the decorations folks!
Since we don't have a fireplace, I decorate the tv cabinet in the living room like a large mantel - I went a little overboard on the pinecones and large green balls.
I dug out the bigger tree this year - I have a red/green theme going.
The mirror next to the tv cabinet - it needed something.
This is our entry way in the dining room - I love my big sugar pine cones - wish I could find more of these but not in New Orleans.
