Neutral and Natural Christmas

Christmas decorating has started at my  Romantic Prairie Home.
Colorado Nancy came over last week to help me get started. 
She was the best elf I have ever had. 

I have chosen a very neutral and natural palette this season.

I make sure every year to add at least one touch of whimsy. Something unexpected. 
These light bulbs just looked like Christmas trees to me...
More pics to come as I decorate!

Dickens of a Christmas Time

Downtown McKinney will be hopping this weekend during the 32nd annual Dickens of a Christmas. Take a break from the big store shopping Friday - Sunday and visit the quaint downtown of Mckinney. Some of the events include visits with Santa, strolling carolers, carriage rides and children's activities. Enjoy holiday shopping and dining at the many restaurants and shops. 
What a great way to have day or two of family fun!

Tour Time at the Mall

 Sprinkles of Christmas are popping up all over ACM. 
I love this frame combo by Booth 58. 

 Neat Stuff has ornaments in every color. 
These pink ones caught my girly eye...

 Cindy from Junque Art Studio  has pretty Christmas goodies too.

I think that is what Christmas decorating is all about. 
We can be a kid again.Whether it be in bright displays 
or calming neutral  tones like I have pictured  above 
or the display below by Uncommon Goods.

I LoVe them all!
