Getting there...

It's starting - the Christmas decorating!  After spending a wonderful Thanksgiving here with family, along with a festive weekend of parade and tree-lighting hoopla downtown, I'm ready to get into the Christmas spirit.
The boxes have come out and the transformation is starting...

A Christmas village atop this shelf in the living room...

Jeanne D'Arc Living-inspired Santa ornaments:
(these are for sale in my Etsy shop)

Victorian Santas seem to be a focus this year...


Soft colors...

A little sparkle mixed with aged appeal...




I'm trying really hard to keep our antique daybed in the living room, whilst still being able to fit a tree in there.  Here are some peeks of the daybed area:

I've just given you peeks of the decor, since aforementioned boxes are still afoot.  The house always looks in disarray before it is 'done', right?

It's all just gorgeous, Susan! I love your village and those cute bottle brush trees! I'm having a hard time being motivated to finish my decorating this year for some reason. But after seeing your lovely post, you've inspired me to get back to business:) Oh, and I adore your glittered trophy! I foolishly passed one up when we lived in Washington, I was still thinking about it the other day!

Oh man, my house was a complete disaster area when I decorated. It's just so fun to dig through them all and find your favorite stuff.

Your decorations look amazing. I really like your light and bright santa theme in this room. But most of all I'm in love with your Glitter House Village. I. Love. Glitter. Houses.

I enjoyed 'peeking' in on the beautiful decorating you have been doing Susan! I love the softness of the look and adore the victorian images you are using this year.
You have such beautiful taste!

I smiled about the boxes all around...mine won't be going anywhere soon because I take forever to decide for sure what I am going to put out. My husband is soon going to be asking how long we will be living with the mess : )I've been expecting it every day but thankfully he is a patient guy!
sending hugs...
