Decking the Hill

I've been busy here putting away fall and getting out Christmas. 
I decided to do some purging of things I haven't used in several years.
Timing was good with a notice from charity coming to my street for pick up.
I wasn't feeling like using much red this year, so boxed all of the red together of
things I was keeping.  Then I only had two boxes of things I "might" use.  It felt
good not to have so much to deal with.  I didn't get out much for fall this year, and
it was so easy to put it away.  Fitting into 1/3 of a plastic tub.

A few peeks of my tree.  I'm not done with decorating yet, and will post about it when I'm done.
I might join a few of the blog parties.

Happy decorating to all of you knee deep in Christmas!


  1. Oh Gina! It all looks so pretty! Love the snowball trim! Can't wait to see it!

    Happy day!

    1. Thanks girl! For some reason I haven't been getting your blog in my email recently. I resubscribed. Can't miss a dose of Thistlewood Farm!!

  2. How cute! What are those little white things with eyes? Can't quite make it out.

  3. Little feathered owls. I just posted quickly and should have put up larger photos. I will when I show my tree more and mantel. Thanks for looking in, Brenda.

  4. Your tree looks lovely, Gina! I have yet to even buy a tree - probably at the first of the week. And RIP Nelson Mandela…a truly great man.


  5. Thanks Claudia! My tree is not real, is prelit and about 8 years old. I don't have the patience any more to string lights.
