I love decorating for the Holiday season. If there is anything that puts me in the Christmas spirit it is decorating the house and putting up the Christmas tree. I hope you enjoy a few of my Holiday decorating touches.
I love all the different color themes for Christmas trees, but over the years I have decorated with the traditional colors of red and gold. What is your favorite colors for decorating for the Holiday season?
Once the tree is up it is time to dig out all the special Christmas decorating items I have painted over the years. Hand crafted things make such special gifts for family and friends.
In addition to decorating the house a starting my Christmas baking is guaranteed to get me into the Christmas Spirit!

One of the most enjoyable things I do at Christmas time is wrapping gifts. I try to wrap as soon as I buy them. This allows me to get creative and take the time to make each gift special to open.
Holiday planters are a great way to decorate the outside of your home. A collection of greens, tree branches and ribbon make a decorative display for your yard.
Wishing you all the best for a joyous Holiday Season
