I would never try to talk anyone out of waiting, I believe we should do what works best for ourselves, so I'm not trying to convert anyone, just telling you what works for me. This dark little corner library table needed some light, especially now that it gets dark at 5 p.m.! So I brought up an assortment of trees and some twinkle lights and made it happen.
The little wooden church was made by my husband's great (great great?) grandfather and it is a replica of the original free Methodist church that he helped build in the little town where my husband grew up, and which is still standing. Over the years the church built a bigger building and I happened to be there for a big church clean out day. This little church had been in a storage room and was headed to the dumpster. I loved it so I asked for it, not knowing it's family history. When my mother in law saw it she told me where it came from and I was so happy that I had saved it from being thrown away!
Are you gearing up for Christmas decorating or waiting until Thanksgiving is over? We are doing some traveling this year around the holidays so I am even more inspired to get the decorating finished so it is in place for the season :)
