A Little Christmas Inspiration

It seems that everyone in Bloggerville has said good-bye to Autumn and jumped right into Christmas. Retail and decorating are always ahead of everybody else...then there is me. My home is a hodge-podge of shopping bags right now as I am working on a project for someone else. My brain has been in Christmas mode for weeks because of it but I am still living in fall decor.

Of course, the shops and markets are ahead of me and full of inspiration. I thought I would share some photos for inspiration this week. After you have stuffed yourself turkey, cleaned all the china and put it away maybe you want to just look at some pretty stuff and get some ideas for your Christmas home. Go grab some pie or a cup of tea and relax a bit.





























I am totally crushing on this nesting box. I took about 2 dozens photos of it! 


There you have it. Are you inspired? I am-all over again. What decorating idea are you going ot implement in your home...or, maybe you just enjoyed the trip. And, maybe it's time for another piece of that pie...

Thanks to Vintage Thymes Monthly Market and Vintage Prairie Home for allowing me to come in 
with my camera.

    1. Thank you, Kathleen, for spending some time with me today. Oh, I am looking forward to Christmas decorating. I think I should have a plan or something but I will probably just end up winging it...

  2. I have my boots displayed on a high up kitchen shelf, but not decorated. I'm going to steal the look of those boots with the greenery and ribbon. Love the look. Would work well down here in Texas.

    1. Those boots were just too cute, Sugar. My dad and brother live in Texas and thought they would both get a "kick" out of that...sorry, I couldn't help myself. They are not something you expect to see in New England but they work.

  3. Woo hoo! I just love visiting shops like these. Most of our Christmas belongings are in storage right while we build our new house. I'm on a mission to decorate simply but beautifully. Great ideas to consider. :)

    1. Hi, Stacey! How exciting to be building a new home; so the trade off is that Christmas will be a little different this year. Maybe more of a chance to focus on the reason we celebrate...Merry Christmas!

  5. Great inspiration! I have plaid wrapped around my tree as well. My friend recently scored a nesting box. It's been on my 'want' list for years! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    1. Hi, Jann. I didn't even know I wanted a nesting box until I saw this! Of course, I have nowhere to put one but why should that stop me...haha. I am loving the plaid this year but not really incorporated it into my decorating......yet.
