Ooh, you’ve got into the Christmas spirit nice and early. I usually put up my decs about a week before the big day but I think you folks across the pond might start earlier as you have Thanksgiving so close.
A lot of us start right after Thanksgiving. And this year, as well as last, those twinkling lights and decorations really lift the spirits.
“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!” 🙂
It surely is.
The quirky angel makes me giggle – is it a dog? It has a monkish look too.
Yes, a dog. An angel, I think, but it does have a monkish look.The dog angel has inspired me me to write a short Christmas story, which I’ll be sharing on our Hinterlands Website. A Christmas present for everyone, and it won’t be over 5,000 words.
How about that? What a sweet thought.
It’s very cheering to see your Christmas decorating has begun. Is your daughter still there?
When my granddaughter Zoë was 3 she looked out the window on Christmas on a typical sunny CA day and began sobbing. She did not think it was Christmas because there was NO SNOW! Everything she had seen about Christmas included snow. It was a huge disappointment we did not know to prepare her for. Enjoy the beauty of your Maine Christmas and Happy holidays to you dear friend!
Oh, so hard to have an image of things should be and then live in a place where it’s different. But I’m sure CA has its beauty, too, during the holidays. After all, the spirit of Christmas lives everywhere.
You will get me into the Christmas spirit yet, Laurie. It is too hot at the moment to think of decorations, but I love yours. They look so special and shout out ‘family time’! If the pandemic behaves itself, then I am hoping my Cape Town family will be able to join us – THEN it will feel very Christmassy around here!
Fingers crossed that your family will be able to join you. How hard it is not being able to see them.
So colourful, thank you.
It looks wonderfully festive Laurie! 💚
Really brightens up this dark month.
I can see you may be ahead of many … well, definitely us because our tree went up today. Thanks for sharing for for the chuckle with the 2020 for the tree.
My pleasure! Made by a blogging friend.
I love it! You’re ready so when Santa arrives in ME, you can send him south. 🙂
SO pretty! I need to get started!
It really brightens up this dark month, these dark times.
Ugh, “these dark times.” Hugs to you. Hugs to me.
I smiled to see those beautiful blue lights. With your newly discovered heritage, that’s quite appropriate, since blue is the color of Hannukah!
And blue is my favorite color. Ever. That can’t be a coincidence. 😉
Love the Christmas spirit, the beautiful lights and the 2020 ornament!🙂
Thanks so much!
Your Christmas decorations are beautiful, Laurie. We pared ours down this year but finished putting them up yesterday. They’ve been very uplifting.
Yes, uplifting. Very much needed during Year 2 of the pandemic.
Christmas already! We don’t put our tree and decorations up until a few days before Christmas. I need to clean the house first!
Have fun whenever you do!
We really must get started on our decorations…merry times ahead!
Yes, merry, merry!
It’s too early for me to start putting decorations up but I am thinking about Christmas, making plans and presents and my Christmas cake is made – just need to feed it booze for a while before icing it.
We like to start early at our home by the woods. 😉 Happy, happy whenever you start.
Enjoy the anticipation
These pictures are so much fun. I love the dog! Thank you.
Many thanks! I, too, love that angel dog.
How pretty. Blue lights might be my favorite.
love love love!
Festive cheer! Hurray!
I love your 2020 ornament!
I love the vintage vibes, Laurie. Lovely.
I used to put up decorations, but the Three Sisters cats do not leave them alone, so I don’t except for a small wooden table top tree with one string of battery operated lights. 🙂
I love getting a glimpse of your holiday decorations! And your new feature photo of ice crystals on red petals is splendid. Your entire post fills me with joy.
Beautiful and cheerful holiday decorations! There is joy here. 🙂
Looking lovely and festive! That 2020 ornament — must try to find one of those as a remembrance. Love your patio area and like you I hope we have time to have a few more fires even though winter is definitely here in Saskatchewan. Bernie
Nicely decorated, Laurie. I was blessed with two consecutive 60-plus degree days to do mine — no mittens or hat required! Of course, all bets are off on taking them down, ha!
Thanks, Debbie. I expect you will need mittens and a hat when you take them down.
I’m late with everything Christmas this year. The Advent calendar and a few other things are out. My husband plans to get going this week!
