Now that my birthday is past, I've got the CHRISTMAS itch. Some people wait until Halloween is over, some wait for Remembrance Day, some the American Thanksgiving. Me? I've gotta get my birthday out of the way and then it's full tilt into Christmas.
I took my containers of decorations up from the basement yesterday and looked through them, but haven't done anything yet. I have had a gold/turquoise thing going on for a few years now, but this year my mother-in-law decided that she wanted turquoise. It got me rethinking my scheme, so I gave her my turquoise shtuff. I thought about a classy white and silver, or a Scandinavian white and red, but really? I don't want to have to invest a whole lot. I've decided to go with a gold and bronze combo, that way I can mix in a variety of themes. Jewel tones, rustic elements, traditional, natural, anything really. I'm excited to get started!
I have to work tomorrow, which means even more holiday excitement. Making and sorting and cleaning and selling. Commercial Christmas at it's finest :) It's a nice way to be connected and disconnected from it at the same time. You'd think that since I've been working on Christmas stuff since July with ordering merchandise I'd be sick of it, but no such luck. I am a little tired of coming home from work every day covered in sparkles, though.
Isn't this wreath that we made at work the most fun one ever?!
It's a little rich for my blood ($$), but I can use all of the elements with my current decor and colour scheme. I'm all for festive on a budget! :)
Tell me, what's stirring in your Christmas decor world?
P.S. Stay tuned tomorrow for a giveaway!
