IT IS BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS!








You can't tell by the pictures I have posted but, I have a handle on the decorating. I have spent the last 2 days put things away that are not Christmas. I am only going to leave a small amount of Thanksgiving items out, because I am having the big dinner at my house. I love the formality of Thanksgiving. It is the one day, I don't get teased for having the table all dressed up. I live with men. They have a little trouble appreciating the "bling" in life.

I did put up a few garland here and there for you to see. Remember the 3 plates? They got garland today, much better. Mostly, I put things aways. I just love the pink, vintage paper weights. Tomorrow is the big day for my daughter, Monique. Please keep her in prayer! Have a great Pink Saturday. I am not sure if I will be able to post before then. Blessings, Martha

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Men, they just don't appreciate our need for some bling! I pray things go well for your daughter tomorrow and she gets the outcome she desires. I know you would love more grandbabies to spoil too! God bless and take care.

My thoughts and prayers are with Monique today for a positive outcome. I had a friend in New Orleans who had fibroid tumors that kept growing so big, but after 13 years and in vitro, she was able to have a baby girl. Your decorations are so pretty. Everyone needs a little bling in their life. Blessings, Tammy

I am excited to start decorating too. I never dare do anything until after Thanksgiving. I have a huge crowd and it is all about the turkey day, but the min. they leave, out comes the tree. lol Yours is looking great! I'll be back to see the rest.

That's a great idea...to start putting away non Christmas things.
I hope to have everything up, except for the 3 trees, by Thanksgiving day.

Your home is beautiful! I love that pink tea pot. Is it a paperweight? My hubby actually wants to decorate for Christmas. I think I might just give in this weekend as we are not having Thanksgiving at our house this year.
Have a wonderful pink weekend.

Mary said...

I love the touches of pink you've found to share with us today. They are lovely. I hope you have a wonderful Pink Saturday.

May all go well for Monique, she will be lifted in prayer.

What lovely touches of Christmas, you have the touch, Martha.

Martha,
I love your Fenton pieces. My Mother had a couple of pieces just like those, I am not sure what they are called.

Beverly said...

Martha, you always share such pretty things. I love it all, and the hobnail is my favorite.

I've been in a decorating dilemna, too. Which to do?

Happy Pink Saturday.

Thanks for stopping by. Just wanted to let you know that all the cloches on my post are from the last party and none are mine. If you have an apothecary jar or cake dome that qualifies too for the "Holiday Cloche Party". Hope you will join in the fun. Hugs, Marty
