One more week!!!

Can you believe another year is almost over!!  One more week and Christmas will be here....and gone again!  I remember when I was a little girl and it seemed like it took forever for Christmas to come each year.  Now as an adult...the older I get the quicker it seems to get here :-)

I guess, I am as ready as I will ever be for Christmas.  Earlier in the week, I spent some time decorating my house.  Nothing wild and crazy...just some garland and bows, Christmas towels in the bathroom and kitchen, and using the cards that family and friends have sent to decorate the mantle.  Just enough so that I started to 'feel' Christmas-y.  This year has been weird here, weather-wise, and it has not quite felt like Christmas.  Then last night, we went and got a Christmas tree (it must be 8' tall!!!) and I spent the morning decorating it.   So it is, at last, beginning to feel like Christmas finally!  I guess, sometime this week I will have to get motivated and wrap some gifts to put under the tree too!

And as I can't help but thinking of Christmas, when it is only a week are some holiday finds from my fellow BESTeam members.

This adorable little vintage Santa from Redemption Art.  Such a cute Santa of Days Gone bye...yet in perfect shape! He measures approximately 4" tall. His arms open when you squeeze his back, so that he can be clipped on to your tree or gift or desk drawer or given as a gift, squeezing some "greens".

Gmaellen made this beautiful 3 inch satin ball ornament adorned with lace, flowers and ribbon. This beauty will last forever and will surely become a family heirloom!  This would look so beautiful on a Christmas tree!

And these very pretty rainbow colored wine charms from Absolutely Kismet.  These would bring some color and be ornaments for your holiday beverages :-)

Merry Christmas to all!  And to all a Happy and Prosperous 2012!!!!

  2. How true -- how quick this year when by.
    I just started to decorate myself. Took everything out -- and my tree is still in the truck of the car. (it's small)

  3. Thanks! And I, too, agree, this year has gone by too fast!

  4. Thank you so much! Great post! I really appreciate it, sharing!
