Christmas Here We Come!

I finally found my Christmas Decorating Mojo...or I internalized Nike's slogan and "Just Did It".  Either way, I'm off to a decent start.

As far as decorating the Outside World though, I have met my match!   
Isn't this just the greatest tree?

I love the Dr. Seuss-style wackiness of it all.

No lights in this outdoor tree, only these monstrous ornaments.

I appreciate the rugged individualism of it.

Glad your Christmas decorating spirit has surfaced, Beth. I got a lot done this weekend, too--now just need to get at those cards!!

Love your tins and the outside tree is fabulous :)

Great tin collection. I have a lot of big tins that I use for my cookies during this time.

That tree is really cool - DH and I saw some of those large shatterproof ornaments when we were out shopping this weekend.

I just love the tins. I so love your blog-the wildlife and the stitching. I admire how you get things done. I tend to have trouble sticking with things. I start a lot but dont always get them finished. How do you stay on task and get so much accomplished.
