Happy Tuesday! Are you getting decorated for the holidays? All done? Or just thinking about it?

 I remember when I was a small child in Europe, the Christmas decorations would not go up until about 1 – 1-1/2 weeks before Christmas! It seems like these days, we all start earlier and earlier.  But that does not take the fun or magic out of it, it just makes it so that we can enjoy our beautiful holiday homes longer. Right now, I’m decorating our front garden at FrenchGardenHouse for the holidays…and I pulled out my favorite Christmas decorating books for inspiration.

 

 

 

Here are a few sneak peeks…. I’ll show you this sweet little spot on Friday. You won’t want to miss that post, I will be hosting a GIVE AWAY with my blogging friends for a fresh Christmas Wreath just like the one that is will be hanging on my front bay window.

 

 

I’m cozying up my French Country wood seating area on the gravel in front of our house with a lantern, I’ll go out and light it just before guests arrive for special dinners and parties here.

 

And this is the perfect spot for having some coffee in the morning with a friend. Cute candy canes are a must this time of year. I can’t wait to show you my beautiful fresh green wreath…and a centerpiece for inside too! But that’s not until F R I D A Y….

 

 

For now, you can visit my friends each day this week and leave a comment for a chance to win THEIR wreath, each of us is giving away a different one!
