Trim the Tree Thursday


Brett at The Southern Hostess is hosting Trim-the-Tree Thursday and I promised to participate...and had very good intentions:) But, I had some computer problems this morning, which had to be sorted out and well... here's my Christmas trimmings--


Now, I do have an Autumn tree and it adds a lot of ambiance to the dining room --it's decorated with fall garland, warm-tone ornaments, ribbons, and bows, and of course, pumpkins. After Thanksgiving, it will become a Parisian tree.
Y'all be sure to go over and visit with The Southern Hostess. I'm sure all the other bloggers are a little bit more organized with their Christmas decorations than I am right now.

Hi Miss Janice, Thanks for checking out my toppers. So glad I could inspire you! Good luck with the move and during the Holidays as well. Stress-free right? You're doing good with your Christmas decorating. Mine look just like that...but still in the attic. LOL! ~Melissa

Hi Miss Janice :)

I think the fall tree is just beautiful and I'm glad you had the chance to show it off.

About your last post... I just love Paula Deen... AND her food. I've never made anything of hers that wasn't absolutely wonderful. I think I might just have to get some of those polka dot plates ;)

Oh my, do you have pumpkins lit up on that tree? How pretty. I've always wanted a seasonal tree, especially for spring. I hope to have time for that one day. Can't wait to see the Parisian. LOL!

Cary said...

I know how you feel! My poor christmas decor is still stuffed in the boxes. I did actually get part of my nativity scene out today. Oh well, little by little!
