Lots To Do and Christmas is Coming!!


I have a hard time finding the time to do what I need to do and then on top of it all Christmas is coming, FAST!!! The day after Thanksgiving I have a Christmas work party for my antique dealers, it is a carry in and they all decorate their booths. I am not doing an open house in the store this year but everyone is running some really great sales. I like to have my Christmas tree in my apartment decorated for the party and I set up the food in my kitchen that is connected to my living room. It makes it feel so festive and I hope it inspires them to be in the Christmas spirit. I have lots to do this weekend and I just asked my attached man to help Saturday night with all the Christmas decor. He was a sweetie and said "of course" I almost have my store decorating done. Check out the pink pre-lite tree I got at Walmart for $17.96!! I am doing a pink/white/silver front window. I will post a pic later on, it isn't finished yet. And right when you walk into the store I have a black/white/silver display. How about black and silver snowflakes!? I just wanted to post a quickie and I hopefully I will have a chance to read some blogs soon! The holidays are nice but where does all the time go?? I had a lot more time a month ago!

The Christmas tree reminds me of the old ones from years ago. Seems that vintage is the new thing! Don't over extend yourself. You want to have fun at the party too!

Love,

Oh, I love your displays! Sounds like you are a very busy girl:) It really does fly by in a flash. I have been trying to pretend that the holiday season is not upon us, but it sooo is. I better stop dancing around in the barn and get moving and shaking! LOL!!!

I am lovin' that pink Christmas tree, which, for such a traditional ole gal, it's unusual for me to like anything but green, red and white for Chrismas. But, I do love your pink tree!
Come back to see me anytime!!
