I couldn't wait to decorate our home for Christmas this year...the day after Thanksgiving wasn't 2 seconds old before I ripped the fall decorations down and put up the Christmas ones.
by far, my favorite elements are the 75 feet of fresh cedar garland [oh yes, it's nice to live in the pacific nw!] on the front porch and the old garden lantern that I ran to earth in the garage. crammed it full of lights and nestled it in a metal basket on the front porch.
