My Christmas Decorating Has Begun

Hello, hello! Well, I know you are going to think I've lost my marbles, as I do every November, so it's probably no surprise to you that I have started my Christmas decorating transformation. 
<Insert - rolling the eyes emoticon here> 
I know, I know...C R A Z Y! ;)
I simply can't help myself, I'm ready for some red and green colors!  I searched the web for an "inspiration tree" and tried to copy it. So far, I am in-love with my tree. What you see in the two photos are the beginning stages. This tree is dressed with many different ribbons. As I stated in a previous post, I sold almost all my x-mas decor when we moved. This year, it's almost like starting from scratch. 
I purchased a pre-lit 9ft tree on Sunday and bought a ton of ribbon and Deco Mesh. I had thought about doing a different color theme this year, but decided to stick with what I love best, traditional red and green, it makes me happy! Plus, the kids LOVE it!  Instead of packing the tree with a gazillion ornaments, I will be packing it with a lot of different ribbon. Wait till you see the transformation, it's whimsical! 
I found this at Big Lots yesterday, it still has the tags on it, but these are LED candles, battery operated that come sitting on a tray.  These candles flicker just like a real candle. I'm going to dress this display up with some holiday greens and holly.
 I took all my Fall decor down and placed everything in bins. 
 It always amazes me how fast I can take it all down compared to how long it takes me to put it all out. Ha! 
Stacked my wreaths, ready to go into a box.
 It feels great to have it all put away and now I feel like I'm starting with a blank canvas, ready to paint my vision. ;)
 Bye-bye Fall decor, until next year! 
Below is a sneak peek at my living room mantle.
Back to work....I love decorating for Christmas, it's so much fun! 
Tootles, and thanks for visiting! xo, Liz
