It’s Beginning to Look A lot Like Christmas-Sneak Peek

Hello my friends.  It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at the Olson abode.  I’m sure it is at your home too.  Many of you are all decorated.  Although we’re getting close, we are still in that chaotic mode.  You know, boxes needing to be put away, ladders taken back out to the garage, and a few more touches here and there.  I’m still working on our bedroom and bath.  A little difficult when I haven’t quite finished painting my bed.

I thought I would give you a sneak peek.  I just love Christmas!  What a joyous holiday it is

Touches of Christmas are Springing up everywhere!

I know it seems like a lot.  But with our newly finished basement we now have so much space to decorate.  It has been so fun having my daughter, Kylee here to help.  Some of this has been done by her. 

She has her own unique style.  A little more simplistic than mine.  I love it!

I can hardly wait for our ‘Creating Christmas’ party.  Please be sure and join us.  It will start on the 7th over at Carlenes, Organized Clutter.  Her theme is ‘Vintage Christmas’.

This morning we woke up to this.  Everything looks prettier with a dusting of snow!

If that doesn’t get you in the Christmas mood, I don’t know what will!

Happy Holidays!

So many cute vignettes! My living room still is full of boxes -- it's kind of frightening, but it will all come together.
