Christmas is 4 Months Away!

Christmas is four months away!  For me, this is crunch time.  It is time to make travel plans, menus, gift lists, ornaments made, new decor planned and the house cleaned.  I will be deep cleaning every weekend from now on, and that will be quite the task since I have college classes one Saturday each month.  I will have to be organized and follow my plan!

For the past several years I have not purchased anything new for decor, choosing to use what I had and to mix it up so that it looked new and fresh.  I don't see that changing much, but I did purchase a fresh wreath for one of my doors.  Last year we bought a 12 foot tree for the living room and this year I don't have a dining room to decorate.  I will be rethinking how to use the lovely things I have for the dining room throughout the house!

Looking forward to hearing plans from the rest of you!
