Christmas in May!

Christmas in May!
No, not really but a meeting to get the preparations started.
I have a real passion for decorating and decorating for Christmas!
After having our home on the tour in 2011, I joined the Christmas Tour of Homes committee.  Today, we had our first meeting to start preparations for the 2013 Christmas tour.  This is what I wore to the meeting.
 
 Yesterday, I spent a good portion of the day rearranging my living room, dining room and the furniture in the family room.  I will share more about the Family Room with you later.  The long rectangle watercolor is an original by Donna Heiman. She is a friend from our hometown.  It was moved from the family room.
 The above chair was originally in our family room back in Indiana but had to go to the basement with the rest of the furniture because of limited space.  It's nice to get to see it again more frequently & the matching mate will go to our bedroom when the chair being reupholstered is finished.
 I have had the same decorations for many years and have moved them from home to home and well..I feel has if I'm getting tired of looking at the same things.  Carol Palm, a fabulous stager who I worked with on the Christmas tour came over and we played and rearranged my living room.
It feels so much better.
The bird prints were in my family room, which will no later go with the d├ęcor when I'm finished with it (blue, pink & fun).  What a nice change of space for them.  How about the cute detail on the back of this jacket?  It always brings on the compliments.
 
 
A little tweaking still to be done, such as a bigger plant behind the couch.  But, for the most part-Finished and happy with the changes.  Thank you, Carol for your help!
