Holiday Prelude

Holiday Prelude

It’s December 1st, which means the official bijou prelude to the holiday season has begun.
Look for gift guides, giveaways and a good dose of glitter.
To start, a collection of some my favourite holiday images.

This seasons theme…pink/gold, vintage/modern, sequins/glitter- how’s that for up in the air!
The great debate is still lodging over pink, white, or natural tree.
In any case, some version of this classic holiday beacon will be up and dressed by the end of the weekend.
I’m feeling rather behind and like there’s a mountain of shopping/decorating/blogging/organzing that that needs to get done but…
so I’m off to get a start on it all.
And as a little extra holiday fun, you must check out Shannon’s 12 Days of Christmas series, over at
What’s Up Whimsy.  A huge list of bloggers will be showing readers the one item that is at the very top of their wish list.  Today, my number one want is featured, along with some other fabulous ladies and their wishlist item.  Head over and have a look and thanks to Shannon for asking me to participate!

Happy holidays my luvs!

    I’m really looking forward to Christmas this year–more so than usual. I’m actually happy it’s December so I can start decorating. If the snow stays away then it’s all good.

    Loving these beautiful Christmas images… I really should’ve done something today to ring in December, but just feeling so tired recently πŸ˜‰ and so much going on at home, work and with my classes… but like that quote says, it only feels impossible right now! πŸ™‚

    Love all of these images!!!! I almost posted that sparkly little deer too. I love the first image of the baubles stringed together and the one of the staircase with the word “Merry.” I’m so needing a fabulous staircase this holiday season. If only I had anything other than basement stairs πŸ˜‰
    Can’t wait to see how you’ve decorated for Christmas!
