A bit o' christmas

Christmas decorating has officially started
At our casa...
Gentlemen start your engines
We are heading out
to buy a tree...
This year I put a transfer on the door
in the middle of the, um, colorful
wreath.
JOY.
...To you

ooh, ooh, ooh! One of "My Favorite Things" at Christmas is seeing your tropical Christmas decor! I'm anticipating!

Natalie said...

I'm going to start a file and just keep everything you do in it...you're just so inspirational :)

I love the tropical look of your wreath. This is the first year my white birds of paradise have bloomed and they still haven't stopped. I love the thought of incorporation tropical blooms instead of more traditional poinsettias, etc. The transfer is perfect. So modern. I'm swooning.

Joy to you and yours as well!

I've been folowing your blog for awhile and I love it! May I ask where you found the window transfer? I've looked everywhere for one that is as classic looking as yours.

OMG I love that JOY transfer. It's awesome. Are you going to tell us where you got it so we can copy and be cool like you? Hmmmmm?

Oh! Hi guys!! I am bad...sometimes I neglect to look at the comments after I have written other posts! Wish there was some sort of way to tell me someone is posting on past posts....maybe there is, I don't have it.

Getting to business...First off, thanks for all the great comments on the wacky wreath!

Secondly...You can find the transfer (and many more...I also got a ladies/mens room sign for the kids bathroom...chuckle chuckle.)on Etsy. There are a TON of different Joy transfers there, but this particular one came from http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5768543

.....so, show them some love this holiday season...

The Tulip Lady said...

Oh man...I MUST know more about the "brancholier." That is quite possibly the coolest tihng ever! I love all things that come from nature, to bring them inside and enjoy them.
