So Much to Do ~ So Little Time ~

I got so Nervous......I forgot to post anything. LOL I cant believe there are only Three Weeks till Christmas.....I'm in a Panic !!! I love when Thanksgiving comes late in November....gives me more "Fall Time". But now there is So Much To Do and So Little Time !!! Tomorrow I will go back in the woods and search for all the fresh greens I will need to make swags and sprays to place around the Cabin. My Granddaughters will come and spend the day with me they love to forage in the woods, we will make a few things for them to take home as a surprise for their MoM & DaD. We will also try to find our way back to the small little pine sapling that I found a month ago...it would make the cutest tree for one of the upstairs bedrooms or maybe placed on the front porch. These are the days I treasure....making memories that I hope the girls will carry with them forever. Its a Blessing and it warms my heart to repeat the things I did with their Father and their Uncle when they were growing up.
Its a pleasure and a gift to myself to have the house fully decorated..... before I start my shopping, that way when I come home with gifts, or I spend the whole day wrapping or baking cookies, with the music on.........there is Christmas in every little corner.
Hope you are right on scheduled with all your Holiday Preparations !!

Thanks for freaking me out! I didn't realize we only had 3 weeks until I saw it in black and white...had to look at my calendar just to make sure. There is so much to do and the only thing I have decorated is my blog! I'm sure your home is decorated beautifully by now with the help of the girls. Sounds like you had a fun day planned. By the way...your home looks so pretty in the Decorating for all Seasons book. I bought that when I was in Lancaster. Your house is my favorite, you have such an eye for design.

....26 days to go!

Sending hugs to you also ~ xoxox Jenn

You are the essence of CHRISTMAS SPIRIT my dear friend. I wish I could come "forage" in the woods with you....they built homes in the 34 acres of woods across from our home...BAH HUMBUG! So no foraging...but a customer did bring me her arms loaded with fresh cut holly from her tree today. Three weeks you say....yikes!
I agree with Jenn about your "eye" for design..you are pretty dang good - enjoy all your pictures. Love, Judy

Connie-Love the new look. Very festive. We also went to the woods this past weekend. The smell of fresh greens in the home always brings such wonderful childhood memories. Your little ones are blessed to have such a wonderful grandma. I love every nook and cranny decorated too.
