Holiday Decorating Traditions

Does Anyone Still Use Tinsel?

Boy, is that a blast from the past!  Is tinsel a part of anyone’s holiday decorating anymore?  Did your parents ever “save” the tinsel from year to year making it your job to pick it off the tree?  Regardless of whether or not you use the coveted shiny “icicles”, we bet you have some serious holiday decorating traditions of your own.



Have You Started Your Holiday Decorating?

Last week I read a post from a blogger who was in disbelief that her holiday decorating was not finished.  Finished?!  I’m pretty sure most of last week was still November wasn’t it?

Christmas seems to come earlier each year.  In reality, the season always has about the same number of days and it’s me that puts off decorating longer each year.  It’s not because I am Mrs. Scrooge (well maybe a little).  It is because simply looking at all the amazing work, of both amateur and professional photographers during the season, is inspiring.   From the classics to new ideas,  I truly enjoy looking thru all the photos we have archived. This is when the season begins for me.

Here's To Those Who Inspire You And Don't Even Know IT

Getting Into The Christmas Spirit

No matter if you started decorating on Thanksgiving Day, or wait until Christmas Eve, holiday music is the one thing most of us will agree is a big part of the season.  Who hasn’t danced around singing at the top of their lungs while decorating?  We are all Harry Connick Jr. this time of year and boy are we good!
