Already Decorating!

I know what you are thinking! It is way to early for this and I agree, but there is so much going on this month and next that I decided to just go ahead. We have a sunporch on the back of our house and a sunroom on the front, and when it is cold neither one is really used. So it is a perfect place to make my "Christmas Room". I have three trees up along with other decorations and it is still not finished. But the trees are decorated. I have no theme or a reason, I just use what I have. It is all from years of collecting. I keep thinking every year I will buy some new ones, maybe next year! My lights stay on the tree and on this first one, there is about 700. The smaller ones are 100. I have two large pictures that I will put wrapping paper on with a bow to make it look like a large package. I will post pictures of it later and try to go all around the room. I also have lights that go around the top of the room. Since this is the only room I will decorate except one of my mantles and because we can sit and look through the french doors, we will be able to enjoy it until after Christmas. I hope you enjoy it to!
Be sure and check out Metamorphosis Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch. Link is enclosed.

Shirly, I just love your candle idea. Can't wait to try it! I'm thinking it would work on faux fruit too, and look like sugared fruit. Hmmmm, you've inspired me!!!
