Dress Rehearsal In My Head

Like so many of you, I am in Thanksgiving mode and also beginning to get geared up for Christmas. Call it seasonal confusion I suppose...

I've been away from home quite a bit lately, so have been doing sort of a Christmas decorating dress rehearsal. 
In my head!
But first I am hosting Thanksgiving and out of town guests up at the beach house, so at the moment I'm planning for this fun gathering, the meal and getting the place ready for merriment..
That being said, I LOVE decorating for Christmas and will be doing that soon. 

At both places!
I feel truly blessed to have two places to hang my hat (and decorate:~)), and it's the culmination of lots of hard work by my husband and I for a number of years and we never take it for granted...
This year will be different, but for today I'm sharing some shots from previous years. One of my favorite Christmas settings was from 2013 with touches of pink.
I still love pink, but I have grown up a little and this time around I'll be using less of that...
So far I haven't done anything but set up one tree in the living room, which I shot via iPhone right before heading out of town the other night. Here is a little peek of that...
Assorted bits of glitz that I found at Target the other day to go with what I have in mind...
I'll have a few new things, as in my work I've sold some of the old...like the Florentine tables above from last Christmas...
And this vintage tulle wreath from last year sold as well. Both of these shots you might recognize from a recent magazine piece... 
And hopefully I'll have time to execute and share some DIY's that I have in mind. This was a simple wreath project that I shared last year, if you'd like to check it out...
And another super simple wreath project that you can easily create and this one cost me nothing, nada, zip. Like in...FREE!

See you later this week with some more ideas!
