• charming wellies and mini spruce perched upon a mantel
• sweet little mittens mid-wreath.
• wreath hung mid-bookshelf.
• shiny ornament icicles along the staircase.

happy black friday. i hope your thanksgiving was incredibly memorable and happy (and delicious!). perhaps some of you are out and about shopping up a storm or maybe staying inside and hauling out the holly to decorate your holiday home! we're still on the road and will be back next week. enjoy those leftovers! i must say i am loving the christmas tunes on A Family Christmas (Putumayo Presents). it is a cheery collection of new-to-me renditions of ol' favorites. more favorite holiday mix picks here. i'm always looking for new holiday tunes, so do tell me what's playing on your ipod.

Very cute. Only it made me house-sick. My apartment does not have stairs, a mantel or a big enough bookshelf :)
But I think I might be able to use some of those inspirations elsewhere.

I am loving all of the holiday inspiration!!! Some of my favorite Christmas albums are (I'm a bit of a holiday music addict): Kenny G Wishes, Barlow Girl Home for Christmas, Kristin Chenoweth A Lovely Way to Spend Christmas, and The hotel Cafe presents Winter Songs :-)

Thanks for your holiday mix picks! I'm just putting together a soundtrack for this season, myself. You may like Susan Boyle's remake of Neil Finn's, Don't Dream it's Over. It's on her new holiday album, The Gift. I never thought of it as a holiday song, but her remake is fabulous.

Thanks for all of the holiday inspiration. My all time favorite Christmas album is Martin Sexton's Camp Holiday. He does all of my favorite Christmas tunes in such a unique and fun way.

Happy decorating!
