Christmas ideas on my mind

I know Thanksgiving isn't even here yet, but I have
Christmas on my mind!!

I can't help it!  
I think I might be the only blogger in the land 
who doesn't have their Christmas tree up yet!  
The countdown is on!  Thursday after dinner, it's Christmas season!!  




Here are some of the things that I've been thinking about 
and that are inspiring me for Christmas! 




Every year we get a Lego Advent Calendar.  (amazon affiliate link)
Even my teens love opening the little box and putting together the set of legos.
So much fun!


Have you heard of the Michaels Dream Tree Challenge?
A bunch of awesome, super talented bloggers decorate Christmas trees.
They are amazing!
Here are some of my favorites:



Design, Dining and Diapers




Tatertots and Jello




Just Destiny

They are some pretty talented designers, for sure!
Totally inspiring and makes me want to put my tree up today!



My favorite magazine this season is Flea Market Decor!
Oh my goodness, I have poured over this magazine so much!!  



Isn't this cork board United States ornament the cutest!!
It comes with a pin to poke into the cork board too.
It wins ornament of the year, in my book!
Great job Target!



For the first time in my history, I am ahead of the game with Christmas cards.
Rather than wait for an idea, buy tons of supplies to make cards,
change my mind, buy more products,
not make enough and have to buy the supplies to make more,
I ordered and have already received our Christmas cards.
I got them from Tiny Prints.
They offer some great coupons and discounts and
I'm really pleased with the quality of my cards.
This is not an affiliate like, just wanted to pass along some good info!



Have you tried the Holiday scents from Mrs. Meyers?
Oh my goodness, the Iowa Pine is amazing! 
I keep finding excuses to wash my hands.
I also have the Orange Clove cleaning spray.
They both smell AMAZING!
I found it at Target.




I'm sure I'll be able to pick up a few things on my Christmas list
(even if they're to me, from me)
this weekend.
My favorite vendor/dealer all around
creative genius girl, Jenni Bowlin,
is opening her home for a vintage sale.
I've gone every year for the post few years and have never been disappointed!
Seeing her beautiful home is completely worth going!
It's in Mt. Juliet, TN, for all of you locals!



Another fantastic store is The Faded Farmhouse in Arrington, TN.
It's got tons of vintage and gift items.
Something for everyone!

What are you doing to get excited for Christmas?
