The Christmas Hustle and Bustle is back!

A few years ago I was making wreaths
filled with vintage treasures.
That I was selling in the store I haven't
done this for a few years now.
This is one that I kept.
I don't know what the problem is.
I use to have the shop all decorated by now.
Yesterday I was with my Mom and I was
passing by all the Christmas stuff thinking
hey I have to get that all out yet.
I must be getting older or I just have so
much more going on now, that must be it.
Yesterday I got up at a little after 3am
and I took all of Halloween down and put it away.
The kids were like Mom Halloweens
not over yet.
Oh well I'm prepared in one area.
Wish me luck today, with a full pot
of coffee, no distractions,
I'll put the Christmas music on loud.
I'm not coming out of there
till it's all done!
P.s. no snow yet, this is fabulous!


  1. I have all my decorations that have been delivered by my friend who had them in storage and am itching to get them out and decorate with them!

    I hope your store has been decorated when you read this. I hung some fairy lights over our mirror in the living room today and a wreath over the fireplace....It's not much, but a start!

    Good luck with the decorating!

    Lieve groet, Madelief

    i always shiver when i see xmas starting about half a month ago. but ofcourse, shop owners have to, if not you're too late...

  6. Good luck getting your fun Christmas decorations up...have fun!

  7. You're expected to have your Christmas stuff up earlier and earlier, no wonder it's hard to get into the mood. But you will I have no doubt. Light a peppermint candle (or evergreen) play some Christmas music - whatever it takes. Hugs, Diane
