I Did It

This ole gal is jumping for joy tonight, you ask why? It's because I decorated my entire house for the Christmas holidays, in just two short days!!! Yes, we got the boxes down from the attic and we have just put them back up, all in less than 48 hours. The one thing that helped this year was, I didn't put three theme trees up. Since, I didn't get started back before Thanksgiving, I decided to cut back and I am glad that I did. Now, don't think all I did was put up one tree and then called it done, oh no, I have several small trees and about eight vignettes throughout the house. Today, I only have time to share a few photos from around the house. More detail posts will be coming soon, I promise. I now need to wrap some gifts for a party and price some items for the shop. Thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon.

                                     I removed 1000 plus lights from the tree
                                               and started with all fresh ones.

                                                  It was sooooo worth it!!!

                                                    I always have fun changing
                                                    up my Christmas d├ęcor from
                                                                year to year.

                                                 Using things like vintage scales
                                                                   is so me.

                                                      I am very happy with how my
                                                    HOT CHOCOLATE BAR turned

                                                  This cute fella almost made it to
                                                   the back door, but on the way I
                                                   found the perfect place for him.

                                              The theme in my kitchen this year is
                                                       VINTAGE CHRISTMAS.

                                                       Aqua is the color for the
                                                         dining room this year.

                                                  As many of you already know, we
                                                 always have our AUBURN tree out
                                               and shouting out a big WAR EAGLE!!!

I'd love for you to stay connected with Coastal come on over and join me there!!!

You sure did accomplish a lot in just two short days. You want to come over and help me get my decorating finished, lol? Such beautiful decorations, I love the sweet driftwood nativity scene. Thanks Linda for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

I love your vintage Christmas and I love, love lights. I just couldn't do it this year. I didn't add anymore lights. The pre-lit was fine. I added lots of ornaments. I don't have a tree in every room this year either. Instead I'm just putting a little of this and that.

Unknown said...

Yea you did it! I look forward to seeing more, especially the vintage aqua.

Unknown said...

Hey, I just bought that nativity ornament today to add to my collection!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

That's a lot of work done in only 2 days. It all looks so nice and now that it's done, you can go ahead and enjoy the rest of the season.:-)

Good for you, Linda! I tried to get it done in two days, but kept losing the mood to do it. I'm not even doing that much, but have taken it a little bit every day. I'm done inside now, but need to put some things outside.

Your tree looks so pretty and I love that snowman. I didn't take any of mine out this year.

Judy Pimperl said...

Linda, it all looks so pretty and I can't even imagine getting it all done in two days! I need you to come and push me to get mine all up and finished. I especially love the vintage ornaments.
Looking forward to seeing you Tuesday!

Linda! it looks SO beautiful! {one Auburn fan to another!}xoxoaimee

Junkchiccottage said...

Linda it is all so beautiful and all done in 48 hours. You go girl!!!!

Babs said...

Wow! Two days..I'm impressed. It takes me a long time to decorate our tree..not because it's really large or a theme tree, but a family tree. So many ornaments have special meaning and I love thinking of the memories attached to each. I think it would be fun to do a theme tree, too..maybe a small one. Love your vintage ornaments.

Brenda Pruitt said...

You got a spurt of energy and creativity I'm still waiting for! Very pretty and inspiring.

Katie Mansfield said...

Good for you! It took me a week. Your tree is so pretty.

Amber ~ The French Pressed Home said...

Nice job Linda! you are ahead of me big time! Your old Christmas lights bring back so many memories. :)

Tea in the Library said...

Awesome! The boxes can be daunting!

Poppy @ With a Dash of Color said...

Wow! You have accomplished a lot in two short days and did a wonderful job as well! Love the pretty vignettes throughout your home:) Now you can sit back and enjoy the rest of the season, Merry Christmas~hugs, Poppy
