So...today I stopped.
Today the decorating ended. Today I hung my last sprig of greenery and created my last festive vignette.
I adore adorning our home for the festive season and I have a huge collection of items that I like to display each year.
However, I decided, with just under 2 weeks until the big day, that it was time to put the half-filled bins back in the basement and just enjoy the bits and bobs that I have already added to our home.
I circled the house with my camera in hand a captured a few shots of my favourite parts.
I hope you'll enjoy a little gander at our little piece of Christmas Land.

I'm not usually a "glitter girl," but I seem to make allowances at Christmas!!
I made a set of these quilted ornaments (below) back when I was in high school. I remember thinking, "I hope some day I get to watch my own children hang these on our family's Christmas tree."
And, still, annually, I am blown away by the fact that I do have a family of my own and we enjoy trimming the tree each and every year.
I have 2 more small hoops to add to this wall arrangement below, but they are not quite finished yet. I hope to have them done this week, but if not, they'll wait to next year.
I don't have the energy to stress about unnecessary things like that!!
Oh dear. This was only half of the pictures of our home that I wanted to share. There might be another post with Christmas decorating at the end of this coming week.
Are you okay with that
I hope so!
Have a wonderful week everyone! Get your shopping and baking done and remember to take some time to drink mulled wine and watch a few Christmas films, too!
