Deck the Halls

For the past several days I have been scurrying about the house ..

~ ~ putting up Christmas decorations.

A bit behind from being away for a week.

I was concentrating in one room to prepare for the Deck the Halls Holiday Home Tour

I took a few pics last night (or should I say this morning as it was after midnight)

~ ~ of the room I have been working on for the past several days.

    You tease! Looking forward to seeing the finished product tomorrow….

  3. This is just gorgeous, Shirley. I should try some night time shots. Yours are beautiful!
    I think we are just about finished. I am preparing the breakfast room and hearth room now and will get pictures today…hopefully. Those are the last spaces besides the back porch, we are doing. I am thankful J gets into the big middle of Christmas. He always has, sure helps!:-)

    Looking forward to the tour!

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. So pretty! My computer is on the blink so trying to “borrow” one when I can in the apt business office. I can’t stand missing all the decor everywhere! 🙂

  10. The peeks of your home are lovely, Shirley! I can’t wait to see the whole thing. I didn’t do as much as I usually do this year, but it is enough to say “Christmas”.
