Starting My Christmas Decorating...

We spent the last weekend moving our daughter into her new home.  
As I showed you last week, our house had been taken over by boxes and a myriad of
items that needed to be moved.

When we downsized back in August, she took all the furniture
that we weren't going to be using here, and rented a storage unit,
 knowing that she would be buying her own home in the near future.

None us thought that it would be so soon though, and
 although we miss her terribly, we are so proud of the woman that she has become.

To get my mind off her moving, my BFF and I met up on Monday for a afternoon of
thrifting and lunch.

I picked up three poinsettias to fill my metal planter and placed it on the kitchen table.
The plants were $2.99 each at a local greenhouse.

They have some glitter on the leaves for that extra festive feeling!

I found some teal ornaments at the first thrift store we went to...15 of them for just $2.
I also purchased this lovely glass dish.  It has an iridescent finish.  
Both made it into this vignette on the sofa table in the living room.

I've managed to keep this little Norway Pine alive since last Christmas, so it got added as well.
The rest of the teal ornaments got sprinkled throughout the living room.

I added a photo of the kids with Santa from years gone by, and a FREE printable I found
over @ Craftberry Bush.
I framed it in a thrifted frame to add a nostalgic look.

I will doing the bulk of my Christmas decorating after the first of December, however, we did get
our outdoor lights up a couple of weeks ago.

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all my American friends a Happy Thanksgiving!
