And So The Decorating Begins...

Okay, to be honest... I actually started decorating about a week ago.
A little here and there and mainly in my kitchen and my 1/2 bath.
But a couple of days ago I really started hitting it hard.
Now I am finished with my kitchen, my living room, my foyer and my dining room. (Well, beside maybe a little tweaking here and there.)
Still need to do my master bed, master bath and mud room.
Hopefully by tomorrow I will be finished.
I have taken a ton of photos. I need to still get them sized, cropped, etc. before showing them off.
But I decided to give just a peek at a little of what I have been doing.

This is one of my little trees in my kitchen. I think this one turned out really cute!

Here is some of the display in my foyer.
My Mom just gave me the adorable Snowman!!

And lastly, here are a few pictures of displays in my dining room.

Okay, that's it for now.
But more photos coming soon.

One thing I did think was funny...
My hubby asked me tonight. "What is it with you women and decorating?"
"Does it really give you that much of a thrill?"
My answer... "YES!"
Then he asked me... "Why?"

Here is what I said to him to try to explain it.
"Most little girls love to play with doll houses. Whether it is a normal doll house, or a Barbie doll house, Little People house, what ever.
We loved to decorated it. Taking the furniture pieces placing it where ever it needed to go. And taking our dolls and have them walk around and play.
It's same now.... Its just a Life Size doll house and I play at decorating."
His answer... "Okay, I guess that makes sense." ;)
Well ladies, it after midnight here. And I am so tired. I have worked my bottom off today. ;)
Getting ready to head off to bed.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me!!
Until next time, Take Care and Prim Blessing To You All!!

I love what you've done so far! Especially the little gingerbread tree.

And I'm with you about the decorating ;) I enjoy making our home a warm and pretty place to be ... just like back in the day with my dollhouse.

Can't wait to see the rest!

Thanks for the sneak peak ~ you have such wonderful displays. I especially like the stitcheries. Did you make them? I can't wait to see the rest.

I so agree with the answer you gave hubby about decorating. My husband works for Wal*Mart and when we were first married he transferred several times. I always looked forward to moving because that meant a whole new place to decorate.

Have a great weekend!
